  • Bumper cars

    OK, I did a search and couldn't find this posted before, so here it is:

    I don't think I'd want to try doing 160 in one, but they look like fun and I swear the yellow one is a '38 Commander.

        or "DMV OK"

        Those are really fun looking. I'd love to have one.

          Some of those are pretty cool. I'm just surprised they're street legal with no shoulder belts, unless they're somehow able to call it a vintage vehicle that did not require them when new. Hmmm...

          UPDATE: Whups, not so fast. Apparently, those guys have been grounded since 2010...

            A motorcycle is legal but these are not?

            "It was a mistake by the field office staff, said Jan Mendoza, a DMV spokeswoman."

            "Our registration division was sent these same photos some years back, and have since corrected their registration," she said. These cars no longer have California plates, she said."

                The chassis look like midget dirt track racer chassis.

                  Actually, they have been posted here before, at least once. No biggie. The "Search" function mystifies me sometimes.
