Boot-Mounted Bowling Ball Blunderbuss

for increased speed and excitement

In your car trunk is a loaded, large bore blunderbuss and on the roof is a flashing green light. When you see another car with a green light coming towards you on the other side of the road, keep an eye on the dashboard, fire sequence display.

As the cars near each other, they exchange radio signals and lock on laser beams. As they pass, their trunk lids are raised and a bowling ball is rolled into your blunderbuss. At the optimum moment the display shows in green text, “On the count of three … 1, 2, 3, fire!” Push the button to shoot the ball towards the receding vehicle.


As you are accelerated, the bowling ball flies across the divider and enters the trumpet-formed barrel at the back of the other car, imparting momentum to also increase its speed. That car can in turn then shoot the ball to a third passing car.
