Default I Love this forum

I bought my first club car yesterday, and was worried I overpaid, but just got some really good news from the sticky about CC S/N's. I knew it was a DS, because of the body style, but I saw a 96 in the latter part of the S/N when I was looking at it. The seller had bought it a few months ago for his kids to run around their horse farm on, but the batteries were bad, and he didn't want to have to replace them. He had paid $1450 for it, and wanted that back out of it. I offered him $1100 but he countered at $1200, and would budge any further. It was in pretty good cosmetic shape so I paid him and brought it home. I replaced the batteries today, and tonight I checked the forum to see what I actually had. According to the sticky, it is an 03, not a 96, and the S/N starts with AQ which means it is has the battery regen system in it. Woohoo, that ups the value, right? It is also maroon, not green or white, so I think that makes it a little more desirable. I bought it for resale. I will put headlights, tail lights, brake lights, a horn and a slow moving vehicle sign on it to make it street legal in my town. I will also put a fold down rear seat on it, and think I can get $2600 out of it once it is finished. I think if I don't get my asking price I might keep it for myself.

Price it all out and see what you may make.
In the mean time clean it squeaky clean and
see what you can get for it running.
Maybe a bigger profit just flipping a clean running cart.
GOOD LUCK.

I have to agree with Doom. Clean it, and put it on craigs list. Start high because you don't really NEED to sell it.
You can go to any of the site sponsors, and get a good idea on prices for the parts you want to add.
If you consider price of all the parts, and your time you may only make $300 as opposed to $500 for doing little to nothing. If you decide to keep it be prepared to accept the fact it will become an addiction. LOL
Good luck and have fun

Hey there from another newbie. You will find these guys are right. Accessories add up in a big hurry, so if you are trying to flip it, it might be best just to clean her up and see if you can turn a profit. But be warned as above, if you start getting interested in these things, the dollars will start flowing into this or another one you get after the sale. I am just beginning to feel the symptoms taking hold of me...but it feels kinda nice.

I guess you haven't seen my other posts. I am not testing the waters, kinda thinkin about dabbling in carts. I just retired from my law enforcement job, and am starting a new business in a town that allows carts to be ridden on the city streets. In an area that has over 700 registered carts, I am opening the sole shop in town that will work on them. This is just the first cart I have purchased to flip. There are other guys in town who work on them as a sideline, evenings and weekends, but hold a full time job elsewhere. The next few months are going to be exciting. I am building my new shop soon, expecting to break ground in February, whith my grand opening on Memorial Day weekend. I am hoping that within a few months, those other guys will be coming to me for parts. I may put this cart out without any more accessories added, and sell it hoping the buyer comes back to have the accessories added later. It is something I had not considered but will now. Thanks for the input. Here is a picture of the cart BTW.

Its for sure an '03. '96 would have a different roof and top supports. Also would have individual seat backs, where as yours has the solid one. Looks very clean though

I was just getting ready to suggest the same thing. Besides having a rolling busness card once you put logos on it, the parts can be written off as a busness expense and the whole cart can be taken off your taxes.
