Sometimes in a burst of creativity a man gets so bizarre an idea that he has to regret it for the rest of his life. Most of these transport innovations are products of such bizarre ideas. No man in his right mind could have ever produced them. All the same they reassure us of the fact that as long as humanity is there stupidity will be an inseparable of it.

This High Heeled Shoe Car was designed by a man named Bob Crow. He must have been a ladies’ man. He built this car upon a 1972 Honda CB 350 motor and it took him 4 long years to build it. His motivation behind making this car remains unknown. Nevertheless, he became popular because of it.
AquaSkipper could very well be the failed attempt of modern man to make something that functions as a water bicycle. It was invented by Shane Chan in 2003 and it is still popular. It’s very difficult to balance upon it and a man is doomed to fall. So, people use it as a foil for creating hilarious YouTube memes.

- The Monowheel
Monowheel is the unicycle of Motorbikes. Just like unicycle, it is highly impractical and it is mostly used by stuntmen. All the same, man has gone as fast as 100 Km/h on this piece of tire.
- Honda Fuya Jo
Once again Honda went on its favourite experimental expeditions with Honda Fuya Jo. The name of the car translates as ‘Sleepless City’ and it was designed for the party freaks who wanted to have a real taste of nightlife. Like every other experimental venture it was doomed to fail and it did fail.
