I recently took my son to his first professional race, an Indy Car race at Texas Motor Speedway. Like any non-race fan, we enjoyed the zoom-zoom the most. However, prior to the race we got an up close and personal look at perhaps the most unique vehicle we’ve ever seen – the Slingshot from Polaris. Our admittedly limited experience with Polaris made us think of a snow mobile with wheels. (Polaris makes snow mobiles, don’t they?) Upon first seeing this contraption, we had too thoughts – First, this thing is an awesome speed demon. Second, is that a plastic windshield on a vehicle without a top?
Having a 12 year old son who depends upon me for survival, I must say that the Slingshot is not for me. However, as a previous owner of a borderline scary convertible speedster, this thing will definitely find an audience. I’ll just have to store it away until my importance within the circle of life wains.
