Heck Yeah, Whiplash!: A Street Legal Bumper Car

bumper-car-1.jpg

This is the 1984 Dodge Colt Turbo that was turned into a bumper car lookalike and put up for auction on eBay. I kind of want it. Only kind of though, I'm not in love with it like I would be a short school bus for sale.

Everything works on this car. The body is custom one piece fiberglass. Paint is really shiny but does have fiberglass cracks, see photos. Have all original factory workshop manuals and also original glove box handbook that comes with car. Motor has slight oil leak due to age, two or three drops only overnight. Has no catalytic converter. One can be installed if required.


This one-of-a-kind "bumper car" is a real head turner, can't drive anywhere without people staring. Lots of fun wherever you go!

I'm going to buy it. I'm going to buy it, then drive through traffic running into every car I see with my hands in the air yelling, "I don't have insurance!" Eventually, somebody will pull me out of the car and beat me to a bloody pulp. If I don't die, I will sue.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots.

Thanks to Travis, who made a strong argument for bumper cars being the funnest kind of cars.

    I wonder how big the turn radius is on this thing

    The great thing about this car is that you don't need insurance with the added protection! =P

  • Kevin

    How do you change the tires on that thing?
