A prime example of "niche"?? I guess there is no real answer for why?

I think the answer for "why?" resides deep in the standard issue male brain, with the inverse ratio of "usefulness" to "amount of energy put into it". I'd write out the formula but my math skills are a little rusty.

Ha, I get it! Andy, were bumper cars standard fare in Scotland when you were a kid? The fellow in that film appears to be a Brit, so I was wondering if they were also popular in the UK.
They existed here in the old amusement parks when I was young, but even then seemed to be fading out. I don't believe I have ever seen them in France, although go karts are  big.

Bumper cars like this are huge in the UK and I always had to try them at the local fair. Great fun! They also have them here at Canobie Lake Amusement Park, NH.
