Today’s CC Clue is for a car that’s a bit…different.
HA! Sure is different. I’m pretty sure that’s an amusement park bumper car.
That is a classic bumper car, probably a Lusse. Used to ride these at Kennywood Park outside of Pittsburgh.
Yes, looks like a bumper car. Very old school one, too.
yes indeed an older bumper car, some of those were pretty cool.
A similar vintage model. As a kid, the one thing that really bothered me about these is being confined to a rather tiny rectangle, and that at least half the kids in there were unable (or unwiling) to really get in there and “step on it”; they’d just timidly shift their car back-and-forth a couple feet – or just spin in a circle, thus blocking the way for everyone else. All I wanted to do was burn rubber!
There was always one poor shlub who couldn’t figure out how to get his bumper car out of reverse and spent the whole ride stuck backing into a corner.
I did that a few times as a kid. Then as now I blame mechanical and not operator error.
Eek, don’t post photos, kind of kills it for the rest of us! 🙂
For future reference: never put a photo in a cc clue reply so others can have a shot at it. No harm done though.
If you are all correct, I can’t wait for this CC!
Beautiful then as now .
Bumper car? ok.
But if it was a driveable road car, I’d try to make it a Tatra ……
A 1956 Packard… from Cuba.
With a Trabant grille?
