Farthest Distance Jumped In A Ford Crown Victoria
Ryan Stock jumped 130 feet in the most popular cop car of the 90s. Apparently, the suspensions on those things are actually good enough to live through a Michael Bay cop chase scene complete with Keanu Reeves.
Heaviest Car To Balance On Top Of One's Head
John Evans gutted a Mini Cooper before balancing a still heavy 357 pound large chunk of metal on his head in 1999. It was the third time Evans had shattered his own record, and presumably the last pound he could handle before shattering his skull.
Most Car's Performing Donuts Simultaneously
107 drivers of the Latvian Drift Association performed donuts simultaneously in 2012 in front of a crowd of cops thinking they were about to have the coolest coffee break ever. A total of 115 cars attempted the stunt, so we have to guess at least 8 cars contained disgruntled police officers.
Most Parking Tickets By One Car In One Period
A Chicago resident named Jennifer Fitzgerald evidently had amnesia after her parked car was left for almost 3 years in an airport lot. She accrued 678 tickets totaling over $100,000, and for some reason was never towed off the spot. In reality, her angry ex-boyfriend, who had registered the car in her name, abandoned it on the way to work for United Airlines. And never came back.
Highest Mileage Still Functioning Car
A Long Island school teacher officially owns the best tool for teaching math by far: really, really far. Irvin Gordon's 1966 Volvo P1800 still runs like a charm after almost 3 million miles and counting. He consistently adds almost 100,000 miles per year driving the vehicle to auto shows around the country. Proof's in the pie.
Tightest Parallel Park
There does exist a record for just about the only people who enjoy parallel parking. Don't expect a drawn out traffic annoyance with a few possible dings, though. In 2012, Han yue of China managed to drift into a spot only 5.91 inches longer than his Mini Cooper, beating the previous record of 8.66 in.
Heaviest Vehicle Pulled While Wearing Roller Skates
Accomplished Indian Kapil Gehlot didn't settle with wimpy shoes to pull a record 2 ton car. Instead, he went with roller-skates, because screw physics.
Most Dead Lifts Of A Corolla
Clint Poore's arms pump more iron than a standard issue Corolla engine. In a feat that would beat out a few pickups towing packages, the man deadlifted a Corolla a world record 12 times before the car got tired.
Most Countries Visited In 24 Hours
A group of 4 visited a record 18 countries in 24 hours in June of 2014. This goes to show how much time a camera crew and equipment can really slow down all those Amazing Race contestants, and how much faster it looks after hitting the editing booth.
Fastest Time To Pull A Car Five Meters Using Teeth While Hopping On One Foot Through Broken Glass
In an ultimate combination of ridiculous, painful, and no-wonder-he-only-used-one-footedness, Silvo Sabba of Italy pulled a car 5 meters in just over 45 seconds. We're glad his video guy hit record when he was supposed to; or perhaps he forgot the first time and that explains round two on one foot.
Farthest Distance to Pull A Car With Beard While Skating
Forget hands, or even a body harnesses: this guy used his beard to pull a one ton car a record 202 feet. Follicles of fortuity, activate!
Longest Distance For A Four Year Old To Pull A Car Using One's Hair
In a country renowned for claiming many ridiculous automotive related feats of strength, we have discovered they start young. In 2011, four year old Mani Shankar pulled a car 60 feet using only his hair. I wonder if his barber has good enough shears to cut through steel.
Heaviest Vehicle Pulled Over A Level 100 feet
If your local fire department needs a tow, look no further than Reverend Kevin Fast of Ontario, Canada. He pulled a 125,680 pound truck 100 feet before the truck got tired.
Longest Distance Continuous Drift
In just about the only situation where hydroplaning helps, Addo Feghali went for the long haul in a continuous drift around a constantly watered skid track for a total of 51.3 miles. Just to put that in perspective, the previous record holder drifted under 10 miles total. Afterwards, they had to put his head back on straight to drive home.
Heaviest Car Pulled By A Sword Swallower
In yet another situation where cars are budged with crazy world record powers, Ryan Stock swallowed an 18 inch long sword before pulling a 3,740 pound car with straps attached to the edge of the sword. In other news, Ryan stomached an entire dinner ham in one gulp to replenish the calories his throat used to muscle the car along.
Most Used Cars Sold In One Year By An Individual
Don Diamond might have had to open his lot on holidays to accomplish this feat, but at the same rate he probably could convince you to buy a car instead of attending your family Thanksgiving meal. In 2009, he set the record at 540 cars sold in one year. That's almost one and a half per day, counting holidays!
Smallest Road-worthy Car
The "Wind Up" was created by Perry Watkins of the UK in 2009, but it's up to you to determine whether or not the title alludes to a wind up toy or "will be blown up and away in the wind." The car measures only 41 inches tall, 26 inches wide, 52 inches long and kind of reminds us of an airline economy seat.
For the guy who wanted the king size bed and swimming pool with diving board package inside his luxury ride, look no further than your neck is capable of looking. At 100 feet long, you'll have to crane your neck to view the entire 26 wheels that pretty much scream "wide right turns" on this luxury limousine. Oh, and the interior decorating is no joke. Behold the first limo made perfect for Michael Phelps.
Farthest Distance Limbo Skating Under Cars
In America, doing the splits is a pretty great feat for the average Joe. In India, why not strap on a pair of roller skates and weave underneath traffic limbo style? Sure thing. 5 year old Shyeeya Deshpande narrowly passed under 27 cars and traveled 158 feet to collect a world record in 2012.
Tallest Completed Loop The Loop
These guys took it seriously when someone double-dog dared them to beat the world record for tallest loop the loop at the 2012 X Games. Rally driver Tanner Foust and Hollywood stunt driver Greg Tracy brought everyone's childhood Hot Wheels fantasy to life when they completed a double 66 foot tall loop the loop. The pair survived 7 G's twice over before seeing double to accept their Guinness certificates.
