Nancy & Ron Palmer

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.

Ron was a larger than life kinda guy. He was a professional ventriloquist - commedian by trade, but really a genius and inventor among other things. He held many patents and could build just about anything.

He was hired to make the dash for the Knight Rider TV car.
