Okay, so we need to be responsible here and first tell you that you should never drink and drive. It’s dangerous, it’s against the law, and it’s just a bad idea. Lindsey Lohan has been the poster-child for how famous we can beco… wait. That’s probably not a good example to use. Just don’t drink and drive, mkay?
Now that we have that out of the way, let us show you the V-8 powered bar stool. While it’s most likely going to get you into trouble driving this home even if you haven’t been drinking, just knowing you could drive home without leaving your bar stool is pretty cool.
As you can see in the video above, the bar stool in question is powered by a small-block Chevy. Yeppirs, a bar stool powered by an SBC. In this world of cool gadgets like motorized coolers, street rod inspired wagons to pull our kids or spare parts around, and all of the other enthusiast inspired toys, Hoss Fly brings us this unique bar stool that Jay Leno demonstrates in the video above.
Boss Hoss, if you weren’t aware, is the company that brought us the V-8 powered motorcycle back in 1990, a time when we weren’t too sure if we were ready for it. But they’re still at it, and have more models and engine choices than most cars do these days.
For the man who already has a V-8 motorcycle, the V-8 bar stool seems like a reasonable addition to the man cave. What better way to get around than to fire up the old bar stool and take it on over to the fridge to get another beverage. You know, because it’s a long walk across the garage – especially if it’s the size of Leno’s garage.
Of course, if this is now on your “I want one” list and you’ve already promised the wife a few spa days, and that you’ll actually go dancing with her, you’re already half way there.
The other half, which may cost you a couple more spa days and a coupe more dances, is that this cool stool will set you back a minimum of roughly ten grand. But you do get your choice of color and you can even add a BBC if you so desire.
The kit comes in various forms, from a raw kit sans engine, with or without the fancy powdercoated pedals, trays and battery cover, or as a turnkey kit with either SBC or BBC. It has forward and reverse, a neutral lever, and it fits neatly in a standard pickup truck bed so you can take it with you. Check out the video above, or their web site for more information – and freshen up on those dance moves.
