For your viewing pleasure. The pig with lipstick. Does the job. Holds the lawn chair beer cooler and gets my staggering butt back to the camper at the end of the night. The lights work alright but definitely won't light up the campsite.

We've decided on an upgrade and are planning on a newer golf cart. This old girl served it's purpose but she's old and tired. Plus, keeping an old 2 stroke running right is getting to be a pain. So I have been looking around for a decent replacement for camp. Check out my find. Cool?

Looks like you'll be riding in style. Did you do the deal on this one?

I did install a couple of reflectors for the back. I'm thinking of led fog light. Run it right back to the battery with an in line fuse and a switch on the dash. We'll see

A couple of LED flashlights and some masking tape should do the trick for lighting. It would look more rednecky.

Lol. Funny you mention that. The ones with a roof on their carts at camp use hanging led flashlights for that purpose.

I decided to haul the ole girl back to town yesterday for some tlc. The choke cable was screwed up from the time I bought it. The thing is a two stroke and anyone who knows anything about two strokes knows that it isn't happy till it warms up. A constant battle with the choke to keep it running for a few minutes.

That's what was happening to me at camp. Go to take off cold with it and it would just sit there and bog for a few minutes till it finally decided to go. Then it's "holy crap boys! Hold onto your hat!" The thing would take off spinning the tires. To fix this I installed a new choke cable and it seems to be better. The big test will be when I can get it off the trailer and take it for a good run.

She runs great now! I hauled her back to camp after installing a new choke cable. What a difference. No more waiting for minutes with it bogging before taking off.

We've got a 2008 Club Car. It is a 4-stroke so we are comparing Apples to Oranges, but we never use the choke on it - even in the winter time. Get on it and mash the pedal and she goes - except for every now and then when someone puts it in neutral and I sit there for a second looking stupid because I can't figure out why it won't start.

I'd like to upgrade to a four stroke. For now this old girl will do. It's an early 80s model. Everyone out at camp is running around with golf carts. They are handy to get down to the beach a mile away. Mine works. I strap a couple lawnchairs on the back, throw my beer cooler on the passenger seat, and head to our friends site every night to sit around the fire.

I put the old girl to a good test today. Must have burnt a full tank of gas driving around the campground. She's running much better now. It's hot and humid. We've been under a severe thunderstorm warning all day but watching the weather map all the major cells have split and gone north or south of us.
