Monster Beetle hits the road
My first question is how do you get in this thing without a step ladder? My second question is why. As to why, well, this is what happens when an aircraft engineer has a 1968 VW Beetle a lot of time.

Sure, you’ve got your Bigfoots and your Hummers, but there’s just something about seeing a VW Beetle this high off the ground that pleases us. It’s got a new 2.8 Liter engine, which should give it a nice power to weight ratio. It will turn heads so fast you’ll hear the collective cracking of neck bones.

Street legal Bumper Cars look awesome
Remember having fun at the amusement park when you were a kid and riding around in the bumper cars? Apparently, it’s a whole big thing to modify bumper cars so they’re street legal. Awesome idea, but would I be able to fight the urge to bump and shove others? Probably not.

They use a Kawasaki 750cc motorcycle engine for power, which allows them to reach sidestreet speeds. For some ungodly and unexplainable reason, they cost $50,000 to modify them so they’re street legal! That is bizarre. How is that possible when there is so little car involved?
