Dodge Bumper Car


There are some truly awesome things that come up for sale ebay, some that take you back to when you were a kid like an old school plastic skateboards or BMX’s in blue and yellow (you know the ones).  But this takes you back to when you went to the fair coming to town was the highlight of the year and the bumper cars. Where else could you drive a car at you mate for a laugh (still love it today 20 years later). I also remember thinking, if only I could drive one of those on the road.

This then is that wish brought to reality, a full sized, road legal bumper car!!!! Built around a turbo charged 1984 Dodge Colt, with a full fibreglass body and randomly for a car with no roof air con. With it being a rebadged Mitsubishi Mirage it also comes with the Twin Stick gear box. A what? Well the Twin Stick from what I can tell had two options for either “economy” or “Power” and 4 gears in each, from what I gather an overdrive unit for all the gears . The result 8 forward gears and 2 reverse!!!!!

The only thing missing is some random fairground worker hanging from that rear pole as you drive round.
