    Had to do some major repair to this after it had a trailering accident.
    50 points to the first person to recognize where it came from.

    On a side note, we took the tiniest guy to the doc today. There was a kid in the waiting room with a chuckie doll and wearing a matching outfit. My four year old goes over and asks " Did krampus bring you that for christmas?"

    Im sure you, and most other people realize but they are just golf carts with custom made bodies. The only other mod was use some plastic wrapped from the rim bead to the tire edge and filled AB foam directly to the original tires and pull the plastic off and paint it to make the tires look like bubble tires.

    I think it is still a cool cart and the work that goes into making any movie prop either makes or breaks a movie.

    Thanks, i didnt build this one originally , just re-built it ,but I have done a decent amount of movie props.
    It would be really great to show up on the golf course with one, or one of those neighborhoods or islands where carts are half the traffic.
    I tell ya though, body work on anything that rounded, is far more difficult than your average car.
    Not getting any facets or dips even when the round shapes are kind of random can be a PITA

    I've seen some pretty cool custom golf carts in a gated community- all they were used for was to go get the mail. All these million dollar homes, and everyone had to go to the private post office to get their mail. Mailboxes are so peasantly... we must show off our custom golf cart Reginald!!

    Boy... they sure would hate mine muhahaha

    Ever been to the villages? Big retirement community size of a small city... different levels of neighborhoods from mansions to houses that must only be about 1001sqft
    Id say 750 but I know theres a 1000sqft requirement in that county.
    Anyway, grocery stores, gas stations pharmacies, it's all there. If I remember right there are five golf courses. They have a mostly seperated roadway for carts.
    1st time I was there I saw a cart accident happen, saw another set where an accident had happened and they had police tape around them, and saw one guy changing a tire on one roadside.....It was hilarious

    But they dont even get creative with the carts, its like all escalade kits. Ocassionally a jimmy buffet themed airbrush job.
    Mine would probably be different every other month, whoville cars, reproductive organ tracy style, some kind of animal who knows

    There is a guy up here who has a train golf cart, Has the body an old steam engine. He even has it rigged up to blow smoke LOL
    But most around me just use them to carry food to the animals or just run to the neighbors.
