Street-legal bumper car makes the road your carnival

Get ready for the ride of your life.

I’ve seen street-legal bumper cars made out of vehicles from vintage amusement park rides, but this is the first time I’ve seen a real full-size car transformed into a giant bumper car. The well-named seller, bumpercarguy, is parting with his sweet wheels on eBay. There are only a handful of hours left for you to get your bid in.

The base of the unusual vehicle is a 1984 Dodge Colt 1.6-liter turbo. Yep, a turbo bumper car. What could possibly go wrong? The exterior has been customized from fiberglass to make it look like the outside of a big red bumper car. It even has the pole sticking out the back that would make the electrical connection in a real bumper car.

The unique vehicle features a cold air conditioner, two new front tires, and a $ 1,500 stereo for listening to calliope music. So far, bidding has reached $ 2,020, but the reserve hasn’t been met.
