Adjustable hydraulic suspensions are nothing new, and are almost a staple of the blinged-out classic car street cruiser crowd. (The stuff you might expect to see in your favorite hip-hop video, for example.) We've seen these bouncy cars perform all sorts of tricks, and the folks behind The Original Penguin Jacket are mixing a classic Buick Regal with the most essential of elementary school playground activities: jump rope.

There's not much to explain here; the Buick's hydraulic suspension is timed perfectly to make the car bounce over a giant jump rope. Nifty, yes, but we have to ask: Can it Double Dutch? Follow the jump for a trio of videos showing the bouncing Buick from different angles

      Love that cheering at the end, some more jumping and inner Apollo/Venus will see the light, right now you look and land like 80's thing.

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_de_Milo No pun intended to anyone. If I'd try the same I get the cheering after the 1st/2nd at best; I land like a Nabisco pudding.

      That's AIR suspension, NOT HYDRAULICS!!!!

        @Jeff Tripp
        ...which would also explain why they can't hop more than a few times; Air suspension relies on a reserve of air in a tank to hop the car. When air pressure gets too low, the car won't hop. Compressor(s) need to run to refill the tank, which takes time. Hydraulics can keep hopping as long as the batteries have power, and nothing catches fire or breaks. ;-)

      Knowing the capabilities of hydraulics, I bet they could get it to do double dutch.
