Bob Gullickson's Rocket(!)-Powered Wheelchair

"Rocket" Bob Gullickson, a paraplegic from Forest Lake, MN, is building quite possibly one of the fastest wheelchairs ever created.  Using a custom-designed and built wheelchair, he will place 2 Hydrogen Peroxide rockets(!) to the wheelchair in a record-setting attempt to exceed 100 mph.  The attempt will be made around Labor Day weekend at Brainerd International Raceway during The Muscle Car Shootout event right before the drag race finals.  Another picture of the chair after the jump.
