During the pandemic I had a wild ass thought run through my head. I would love to cruise around my little beach community in Toms River in my own golf cart! How hard would it be to get one after all? I mean they are probably just giving the old ones away at the area golf courses? Right ? Like old Greyhounds that have ran their last race. Yeah right. I soon found out that the Golf Cart Game was just as hard as the Game Of Golf! My golf cart pimp hand was weak. Not only were the golf courses not just giving away old carts, but private owners were selling used carts for thousands of dollars, depending on condition! Like 20 year old golf carts for a couple of grand!! So, I thought well, maybe I need to put this dream on hold til I can find a good deal. Then it happened ! My Angel appeared! Well not really an Angel, more like my Traffic Lady, Christina Lange! She told me how her husband, the world famous Channel 7 Eyewitness News Helicopter Reporter, and all around great guy, John Delgiorno mentioned to her that a copter tour company had gone out of business at his small airport and they left an old beat up golf cart there!
So with the help of my buddy Chris, and his trailer, we drove to the hanger, and along with John, we loaded the old girl up! Well that was 2 years ago this past June. Today my golf cart has brand new batteries, tires, rims, hub caps, side mirrors, seat cover, Blue Tooth speaker, and steering wheel. She isn’t done yet either! before the Fall I’ll be getting a tinted windshield and flared wheel fenders! I might even get her wrapped in a new color, although that would mess with her name given by my daughter..The Krispy Kremer ! Check out the pics I’ve included of my progress. Oh and before you think I’m crazy, well I am, but before you think I’m crazy, I’m like one of a half dozen folks in my neighborhood alone that has a golf cart. So lookout! We might start a gang, or have a parade!
