WE got one!
Been hunting Craigslist daily checking on carts. They are much more expensive than I was expecting, however, we found one and bought it on Tuesday! Happened to find a couple that had just bought a house at auction and were needing cash ASAP. They were selling all the toys they could in order to raise the money in 3 days.
We got a really nice, clean, well cared for EZGO 48volt, Jakes lift, BRAND NEW Trojan batteries, BRAND NEW off road tires, custom carbon fiber dash w/ stereo, rear seat, and the roof even has a tinted skylight! Since this is really a toy for the DG, the pink camo doesn't bother me and she likes it, which is what matters anyway. Now the only issue is getting it to fit in the garage. The skylight roof is taller than a stock roof and makes me too tall to fit under the door by 2 inches!! I figure we can either buy lower profile tires/wheels for the neighborhood driving or build a little garage for it, unless anyone else has any ideas.
The price they were asking for the cart was a good deal considering all the options it has and the cart was on our list of ones to go see at the weekend. However, when we saw that they dropped the price by $1000 we went to go see it that night. These guys lived way out in the boonies and had one of the biggest garages I have ever seen and it was chock full of toys. Buried deep under a pile of fishing poles, boxes, yard tools, and other junk was an old VW sand rail. It was her late fathers buggy and had been sitting for a year or two, but she said it ran when it was parked. After about 30 seconds of bargaining, we bought it also, for $1000. So I got a golf cart AND a sand rail dune buggy for what they were originally asking for the cart, which was already a very fair price.
The next day I checked out the buggy, saw it needed a fuel pump, replaced it (in 10 mins), and the old girl runs like a scalded dog! Looks like it will take very little to get it ready for some off road fun! I'm just tickled pink with the purchase. We got such a good deal I actually felt bad when we were leaving and the DG wanted to give them another $100 or two to ease her guilt!
