After we saw on Facebook that Villages Golf Cart Man was thinking of making a golf cart replica of the new 2013 Dodge Charger it got us thinking of what other cars we’d love to see as custom golf carts.
Here’s our pick of the top 5 cars we’d like to see as golf carts, what would you choose?
AMC Pacer from Wayne's World
The AMC Pacer was a small 2-door hatchback produced between 1975 and 1980 and became famous as the "Mirth Mobile" in the Wayne's World movies. Belonging to Wayne and Garth their blue 1976 model provided them with transportation between parties and their studio, complete with red licorice dispenser, drinks tap and AM/FM stereo.
We'd love to drive a blue AMC Pacer golf cart down the fairways singing Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody at the top of our lungs.
General Lee Dodge Charger
The Dukes of Hazzard was an 80's TV favorite best remembered due to the bright orange 69 Dodge Charger, called The General Lee. Driven by Bo and Luke the General powered the Duke boys out of scrapes with the law, usually with a fantastical car jump stunt to freedom.
PGA Tour golfer and Masters champion Bubba Watson recently bought one of the original TV cars at auction and we'd think he'd look great driving a General Lee golf cart at his local Florida golf course.
Shelby Daytona Coupe
The Shelby Daytona Coupe is a pure racing machine. Built to take on Ferrari at the 24 Hours at Le Mans, only 6 of them were built between 1964 and 65. Based on his famous Cobra, Carrol Shelby built the Daytona to beat the Ferrari 250GTO's and won the GT class of the 1964 Le Mans race.
One of the most beautiful race cars ever built, an original Daytona coupe would cost in excess of $5million but we'd be happy with a replica golf cart.
Ferrari 250 GTO
The Ferrari GTO is the holy grail of race cars. Only 39 were produced between 1962 and 1964 and it is now considered one of the greatest Ferraris of all time. Famous owners include Nick Mason of Pink Floyd and fashion designer Ralph Lauren.
In May a 250 GTO originally made for English race car driver Stirling Moss was sold for $35million, making it the most expensive car in the world. With a price tag calculated in the millions, the best that most of us can hope for is a 250 GTO golf cart and we'd be happy with that if it looked half as good.
James Bond's Aston Martin DB5
Who's the coolest man in the world? James Bond of course. And what's the coolest car that he's ever driven? The Aston Martin DB5. First seen in 1964's Goldfinger, the DB5 was prepared by 'Q' with several deadly modifications that Bond needed to get out of a few corners.
Undoubtedly the most famous car in history, one DB5 that was used in Goldfinger was recently sold for $3million. We'd like our custom DB5 golf cart equipped with a few 'modifications' of its own, including machine guns, the passenger ejector seat and smoke screen.
