      It's an OHV 6 with a 3 speed. Anything more powerful would probably be dangerous. Though we've been talking about swapping in an R1 if the six gives out.

        Are you going to drive your grandma to church on Sunday in that?

        Believe me! I know his Grandma. She would climb into that thing in the blink of an eye, smiling and waving all the way to Church.

          Wow, what an entertaining thread! I need to take it for a ride next time we're UP there. Is Derwood jealous of the paint job? Enjoy, Bill.

            Or just the rear bumper patina?

              This car has definitely raised the standard for all of the other cars here.

              He can't be jealous since the yellow wheels were his contribution.

                  South Bend is beaming with pride and the city officials are gearing up for a resurrection of their auto industry. Truly a slap in the face styling-wise to those "Lambo" golf carts. And as long as you can properly account for the removed pieces it will likely score points with the "green" recycle people too! I just hope the spotted owl people aren't upset about the wooden "trunk." Those OSHA approved fender edges guards show that safety is paramount. Lastly, any Millennial would be thrilled to know that bullet nose has to improve Wi/Fi reception. Will the top be available in different colors?

                    That is a good, multi-purpose vehicle.

                    There is also room on that wooden rear deck for a couple of Clarke floor buffers so the janitors can use it in the evenings to make the rounds and wax the floors in all the out-buildings and storage sheds after-hours.
