Ron Palmer of Richardson, TX highly modified Pulse #154 in about 2000. Using electric motors, the canopy could be remotely controlled. The outriggers could be raised or lowered as the driver entered a curve in the road allowing the Pulse to tilt as a two wheeled motorcycle does.
Pulse #154 also has several body modifications.
Below, Ron thrilled kids with his little friend, 'Outrigger' at the 2006 National Pulse Rally.
Ron could stand back as the crowd talked to the puppet in the driver's seat of his Pulse. Ron could talk through a microphone hidden in his coffee cup.
The puppets mouth moved as he talked and his head would turn and his eyes would blink too.
He was hired to make the dash for the Knight Rider TV car.
Never a dull moment with Ron Palmer
2009 Rally was dedicated to Ron Palmer
