Why the auto industry will make a comeback

Post by Redrose100 »

MARCH 31--In a law enforcement first, Ohio cops this month arrested a man for drunk driving on a motorized bar stool. That's right, a motorized bar stool, which can be seen below in a police evidence photo. According to cops, Kile Wygle, 28, crashed his bar stool near his Newark home earlier this month and called 911 due to his injuries. When an officer arrived and asked Wygle what happened, he answered, "I wrecked my bar stool." According to a Newark Police Division report, a copy of which you'll find here, Wygle's homemade ride is powered by a Briggs & Stratton lawnmower engine. Wygle noted that the bar stool could hit nearly 40 miles per hour, but that he was only going 20 when he wiped out late in the afternoon on March 4 (a witness told police that he spotted someone driving a "strange motorized machine" before the crash). A plastered Wygle, who failed a series of field sobriety tests, was charged with DUI and driving with a suspended license, both misdemeanors. His bar stool was not impounded.

I wish it was only Ohio Bro'...Granted, the motorized bar stool may be a pure Buckeye Brainstorm, but the general shithouse lawyers who come up with what they believe to be brilliant loopholes seem to be everywhere.

On a seperate thought, how many times do you suppose he flipped off the back of the thing before he added his wheelie bars?

I saw a crazy one in Street Rodder magazine like 12 years ago. It would destroy the above pos!

When I was in high school, I built a pretty awesome gocart out of a Radio Flyer wagon and a 50cc 2-stroke engine. It was pretty damn fast. I got the idea from...Street Rodder magazine.
