More pictures. Funny thing is that this cart looked really good - on the outside.

I know it is only a matter of time before the controller and computer fail.

LIVIN - We all appreciate your input, but how would you feel if someone sold you a running cart with a motor like this? You may have gotten lucky and found a cart with minimal damage, however - Time Will Tell...





As I appreciate your input as well, but remember ....most of us are not purchasing these carts from dealers. Some are purchased from friends, family or individuals and it is known about possible condition.....
I am willing to bet the rest of the "Ike Cart Crowd" on this forum are not paying for them at all simply because there are piles of them everywhere abondoned on the side of road, empty parking lots, open fields etc waiting for someone to load up and take away.

Example:
Thanksgiving weekend....
I watched a guy walk up to a salvage company that was loading approx 25 flooded carts at the Galveston Yacht Basin and ask them if he could have one. The driver said "sure" and he picked one out. After several others standing near by figured out what was going on they also helped themselves. They tipped driver $10-$20 and then took their Ike casuality back home.


What I am trying to explain is that most have little to no cost in these carts and it is a fun project too enjoy. If we invest $1500 in cart to get running and it already has tires, lift, brush gaurd, dash cover, and other acc we save $3,000-$4500 over purchasing a reconditioned cart with same equipment.
If a wire corrodes loose, hub goes bad, horn stops working or even a motor goes south down the road we are still ahead of the game.

That is what im getting at. The initial investment on the cart was minimal as we knew it took a bath in the gulf. So for a 2-4k investment on new parts we will have a decent cart. When i say it is good shape i mean frame and body only, I full expect to replace everything electric. Thanks for the welcomes and all replies.

Hey Guys I think both of you have Valid arguments. It depends on what your
1. Expactations are
2. level of comittment
I recently rebuilt a 50 Year old Tractor it took 2 years and (1000 hours) and $2,500.00.
I could have baught one already rebuilt on Ebay for the same money.
But it was something I wanted to do and never gave up.
The tractor runes and looks new, But it,s a ongoing project to keep it up.

My point is the Tractor is as much about the STORIES of going from point A(Rusted Garbage) to point B(a fine Machine) as it is about the $$.

Stay committed and remember some times it's more about the journey as the destination.

I'm sure someone will buy them and have themselves a whole can of worms. Buyer beware.

Flooded Golf Carts will be the least of their problems... Thousands of flooded automobiles & pickup trucks have already been scattered out over the country.. We were in NE Kansas over Thanksgiving, and one of the TV stations in Topeka had a news report about "IKE" vehicles showing up for resale in used car lots there..

I am just using it as a learning tool. If it lasts a few years...Good. If not, lesson learned. Anywho, I plan on abusing it a lot. I am big and I have kids. We shall see.
