• A Jeep-like Vehicle That Blows Other Cars Out Of The Water
• A Sprint Car That Takes A Wall Ride
• A Guy That Got Mowed Down By A Volvo Trying The Latest Internet Challenge
• And How A Man Tried To Evade Arrest While Still In The Cop Car
It’s Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang in real life! This fully functional land and water car is the Panther from Water Car built in Fountain Valley, CA. All you have to do is raise Wheels up and propel through the water with the flip of a switch! It's built entirely from scratch and houses a 3.7-liter VTEC Honda V8 that puts out 305 HP on both land and water although it only has a top speed of 45 MPH. There will be one for sale at auction September 1st but if you buy direct from the automaker you can expect to shell out around $172,000.
After some quick thinking and improvising, California native Logan Seavey took his car for a wallride at the Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway over the weekend. After a driver spun out and came to a stop in the middle of the midget sprint race, Seavey decides his best chance at avoiding a crash was to head up the wall and around the driver. And it worked! Talk about skill and good reflexes!
In My Feelings Challenge
The “In My Feelings” Challenge is the latest viral trend that has taken over the internet. It requires people to get out of a car, sometimes while it’s still rolling along, and continue the song while dancing. Obviously, there’s a lot of ways for a challenge like this go wrong. And it did for this guy. He hops out of the car he’s in and starts with the dance when all of a sudden, he’s mowed down by a Volvo that was passing the probably very slow-moving car. He’s lucky he walked away with minor cuts and bruises.
Normally, you see criminals under arrest in the back seat of a cop car, not on the roof. But Martin Estrada decided to be a little different. We’re not sure what his game plan was once he was up there but he decided to kick out the back window of the police cruiser he was in and climb up on the roof for a little ride. Jennifer Owen Mustain was able to catch it on video and we can see the moment the Wichita Sherriff’s office manages to get him back on the ground and into the vehicle. Definitely not your typical evading arrest case.
