You simply have to see this contraption to believe it. Dubbed the Redneck Rollercoaster, it's a Chevy Cavalier that has had its seats and controls elevated to a position over the front bumper. As you can probably imagine, this makes the car a bit nose heavy and prone to endos, which is the whole point, actually. As these YouTube videos will show, the name of the game here is fun, or insanity, depending on how you look at it. Get a little speed going and slam on the brakes and see if you can touch the ground when the car lifts its rear wheels and catapults you earthward. The first video is a demonstration run but the second gives a detailed rundown of the engineering behind the RR and a basic blueprint on how to build one of your own if you have a spare Cavalier lying around (Don't we all?). Click through for the clips, you went regret it.

      Wow - that is some very good design and engineering. I sure as hell could not do that!

      My inner redneck rejoices.

      I don't understand why the car doesn't flip all the way over? Also, what happens if the column the seat is mounted on gives way during one of those braking runs? Instant faceplant.

      Thats actualy a smart bit of engineering he did there.

      And no matter how many times Ive seen this (Ive seen it for years) I STILL wanna ride it... Yee Haw

      Strange but true -I met this guy last year. He is what we might call a little bit eccentric. The "red neck roller coaster" is one of his many amusements on his farm in Ontario. The building in the background is his poured, reinforced concrete bunker where he stores all of his (and friends) toys (his previous building was burned down by vandals). The current building isn't only bulletproof, it's also bomb proof.

      God damn Canadians.

      I will never look at a Cavalier the same way ever again.

      Apart from the (surprising) absence of duct tape, this looks like a refugee fro the Red Green Show. Truly a case of life imitating art.

      In the first video, where does that dog go on the left side of the screen. Under the car??!!
