GOLF CART TO WORK
I read the article on folks biking to work and my roommates and I had the same idea with recent gas prices skyrocketing, but being the engineers that we are, we thought to have some fun with it. Instead of driving or biking to work, we purchased a run down, electric golf cart off craigslist.com that wasn't working and turned that in to our commuting vehicle. Our home is only 1 mile from work and we have a path that provides us safe, easy access to work. We refurbished the cart, added a new motor, new interior, a backseat cooler, a lift kit, and other unnecessary accessories all to save money on gas. Provided are some before and after pictures of the cart. There are three of us that commute together on the cart. We're happy to say that the only liquid we're consuming when riding in the golf cart is not gas...only beer.
