This is a good before & after picture. These golf carts were once identical. Both still use (mostly) stock E-Z-Go golf cart running gear and suspension.

That's cool. They need to use that at the golf course. Cool

You can go dune buggying in the sandtrap.

This guy came in to fill our test driving position. He wouldn't speak, but he had a resume that said he had experience in Europe. We'll give him a try.

Wow! That is awesome! If I was a golfer, I would have to have one of those. If you could ever convince a pro golfer to use one during a televised event, you would be a rich man in less than a year from people beating the door down trying to get one.

BTW where did you find the kiddie ride buggy. I need to get one of those to build for my kids. Those are awesome too. I had no idea they were obtainable.

The small body is a copy of the old Hampton carnival ride cars. We can make more.

This is a go kart that has a Allison body, its on a lawn mower chassis its an old project that someone did years ago. Body is in great shape for its age. it pretty big to almost 7ft long. I dont think its an true Allison that was made in Fl, this seems bigger than what Ive seen in the few pics thats out there. May be selling to a a Allison truck owner in PA. But when I saw it on CL and was 2 hours away had to have it.

Sorry I disappeared for a while, but I'm still around. I let my .com website domain expire, but we're at .net. I still have the molds and would like to find someone to produce bodies, and maybe a custom golf cart builder to assemble and sell completed carts. Let me know if you're interested. Let's make more of these!
