Dr. Mojo admits a weakness for jokes about musicians. Let's collect a few -- such as, "How do you get a bass player off your porch?" The answer: Pay him for the pizza.

That's great!

Hey, when i was about 12 I came up with the idea of a powered wheelchair with a Harley-Davidson drivetrain.

No, no, no, that's a wheelbarrow. A WHEELBARROW.

A wheelbarrow with a 6.2L V8 could be interesting.

Not quite, but still potentially interesting:

The Google Images link won't resolve for some reason. The jet powered wheelchair is cool. Here's a jet powered La-Z-Boy a friend of mine built:

I found this because I'm heading to work one day and see one of these cruising in the bike lane. Nothing has made myself doubt my own sanity this much.

Back in the day, when I became acquainted with Cobras I started thinking about how a 426 Hemi might be shoehorned into an Austin Healey Sprite.

Surely you mean how it could be draped around the engine?

Don't know if you could get one into a Sprite but a friend of mine did manage to get a v8 into a Chevy Vega.

There is a bona fide rocket engineer who lives in North Minneapolis who got clocked at around 150 mph in his rocket powered go-kart at about 1 AM, on a city street. He was really drunk.

There were zillions of small block Chevy powered Vegas built. Chevy even halfway did it with the Monza, with that wimpy debored 262 in it. They really needed iridium plugs back then for those! You were supposed to unbolt the engine mounts and jack the engine up to change the left rear plug, but most folks cut holes in the fender wells to reach the plugs.
