Default G1 Cheap, Should I buy it?

I have an opportunity to pick up a Yamaha electric cart for a couple of hundred bucks for a project. I want a cart to run around the neighborhood in and don't mind a project including electrical, paint upholstery etc.
I think it may be a G1 based on the picture.
Are parts (motor, controller, steering, brakes etc.) still available for a model that old?
What kind of problems do these experience?
Is it too old to breathe new life into?
Here's the cart:

Thanks Matt, I will be looking at it this afternoon.
Anything I should look for?
I'm guessing this is a 36v resistor cart, any idea how fast these will go?
Are they a good candidate to upgrade to 42v/48v?

A big block I am not really that familiar with the G1... I just think the more toys the better, and if it is dirt cheap... should be a fun project. Although if it does need new batteries I hear that can get pretty pricey.

How true! I have 2 boats that are money pits now, so I understand the theory.
BOAT is really an acronym for "Break Out Another Thousand"
