1947 Bumper Car on 2000 Kawasaki ATV

What, you ask?  Yes, it's a real bumper car restored and mounted atop an ATV.  Why not?


Notably, this isn't the first "roadgoing" bumper car we've features, although the other was a real car made to look like a bumper car, whereas this one is a bumper car made to look like a real car.  I know which one I'd rather drive on the freeway!

The ATV in question is a 2000 Kawasaki Lakota 300, which, as the seller states, has plenty of power to move this oddity.  The question is...where would you go?  Wherever you go, we don't recommend taking turns at high speed, as this metal body sits high on top off the ATV chassis.  So, it's a low-speed item, which means this would be a great parade oddity, assuming you find a parade with a bumper car theme and assuming you like having something you can only drive once or twice per year.

There's a reserve, but the starting price was low enough that we'll find out what the market thinks this is worth.

Yes, it's tall and, yes, there's a lot of orange.


Front confirms this is a classic and not one of the futuristic 70s/80s versions.


The obligatory power pole is there!  Also note the lack of a license plate - we assume this is not road legal.


Emblem is in place.


Interior is about what you'd expect - it seems the driver straddles all this.


Other (strange?) vehicles for scale.
