Shopper Chopper: A V8 shopping cart for Nascar drivers

Shop 'til you drop? How about shop 'til you hit ludicrous speed in your tricked-out shopping cart with a V8 engine.

Some things were never meant to go together, but that hasn't stopped some insane mechanics from fitting a honking V8 engine to a shopping cart to create the Shopper Chopper hot rod.

Admittedly, this isn't just a stock shopping cart stolen from the grocery store parking lot. It's custom built to accommodate a height of more than 9 feet and a length of more than 12 feet. You could fit a lot of cereal boxes and Doritos into this monster, but it's already fitted with seating capacity for six people.

What is likely the world's fastest shopping cart features a 350 CID small block Chevy engine and a 3-speed transmission. The whole thing weighs 2,950 pounds. An array of 500 LED lights makes it glow at night.

The Shopper Chopper was originally built for a local parade, but soon took on a life of its own. It's now available for fundraisers and corporate events anywhere in the continental U.S.

Personally, I would like to see Costco invest in a fleet of these. It would make shopping for those massive bags of dog food and 20-packs of canned goods so much more fun.
