What did you dream about when you were little? Arizona resident Austin Coulson dreamed about landing in the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records. And this year, he finally did it thanks to the tiny car that he built recently, which earned him a spot in the Guinness World Records 2014 book for building the world's "Smallest Roadworthy Car." Here he is in it:
The car that he built is only about two feet high, two feet wide, and four feet long. But it is drivable on roads that are marked up to 25 mph, and Coulson himself routinely zips around Phoenix in it. As far as fuel economy, it gets about 85 miles per gallon (its fuel tank only holds a half-gallon of gas, though), and it has no suspension so it provides a pretty bumpy ride. But Coulson built the car from scratch and is proud of the fact that he has been recognized by the folks at Guinness for it. And now, he's thinking of what other records he can break to land in the book again.
"It's so much fun," he said recently. "I've started thinking, 'Hmmm, I wonder what other records there are?'"
Hear Coulson talk about breaking the "Smallest Roadworthy Car" record in the video above. Would you ever get behind the wheel of the car he put together?
