When it comes to motorized bar stools, I’d be the first to say that a small block Chevy is really all you need. The Australians clearly disagree, and the latest episode of “Add A Motor To It” features a big-block barstool, built by Kit Anderson. That’s a 454 cubic inch Chevy motor that Kit is sitting atop of, and in its current state of tune he estimates it’s good for around 480 horsepower. It’ll tow 2,000 pounds as well, which probably comes in handy when your friends’ barstools break down.
Fortunately for Kit, his barstool’s top speed is just under 22 miles per hour, but it’ll get there in under one second. I say “fortunately” since his big-block bar stool lacks brakes, which would make driving the thing even more puckering.
I say we need to retake the crown for the most powerful motorized barstool back from the Australians, so I’m proposing a supercharged, 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 barstool. With the proper tuning, I’m guessing to would be good for well over 500 horsepower, and if it isn’t, we can always add a nitrous kit. Unlike the Australians, we’ll limit it to a more entertaining top speed in the triple digits, because we’ll actually add brakes to ours.
