Yea mine came with them from the dealer. I think it is a part of the rallye edition. I also got power sunroof, touch screen radio, heated leather seats, etc etc. Heres an actual picture of mine

Okay. My Dad bought this car in 1974 for $375. He drove it as his daily driver for years and I grew up riding around in this. He spent ten years restoring it himself but then never really drove it

pic ?

Well, if you ever run out of juice, you can pick it up and carry it under your arm.....

I heard that you can remove the floor boards and just "run" it around if need be, Fred Flintstone style. :-P

Haha. The real question is............how many golf club bags will fit in it..? :-D

Soon… in addition to the Sorento (and my wife's CR-V)… [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/96943/] [/URL] We're going to wrap the car (door panels, back window, etc.) in Golf Evolution and 5SK branding and so on. $700 down, $116/month out the door (taxes, etc. included) on a 36-month lease. Almost a no-brainer at that point. I drove Dave's (we are each getting one) back yesterday from Buffalo. Nearest dealer. Made it to a charging station with about two miles left on it, and then made it back to his house with about two miles left on it as well (thank goodness the estimates are accurate).

Doesn't this car hold two cart bags upright in the back also? Street to course nonstop?

Nice,

You'd be surprised. Maybe.

I drive a WV Polo. It's bigger than a smart car but my woods still have to come out of the bag and sit across my back seats.

2013 Ford F-150 Ecoboost 4x4 on a 6" pro comp lift with 20" fuel wheels and 35" pro comp tires. Tons of performance work and ad-ons as well. I LOVE this truck. It's my baby.

Mine's now sitting in my driveway. [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/97227/] [/URL] Again, not really thinking of it as a car, more like "advertising that can get me from place to place."

Then why didn't you get one of these:

Because it would cost more and I couldn't drive it anywhere near as much as I plan to drive this little bugger.

Just today we've gone to the zoo, out to lunch, out to dinner, and my wife is going to a movie in it later. All on 20% charge, which costs about… a quarter.

You could fit two in your garage, bumper to bumper.  When do you get the graphics put on it?

And another plus - you don't have to pay for a golf cart anymore on the course. Just strap the clubs on the back of this baby and you're good to go. :-P

ASAP. That's their point, so we don't want to delay in getting those on. We have a quote from one place (about $12/square foot), and are waiting on the quote from the other place. We expect it'll be a bit less.

We're getting…

  • Green doors with black Golf Evolution guys on each of the doors with "GOLF EVOLUTION .com" beneath, and probably "PLAY BETTER" beneath that in white.
  • The phone number on the space above each front wheel and behind the headlights (874-3300).
  • The back of each mirror will have a golf ball dimple pattern. Or be plain orange.
  • The front "hood" will be green (or white) with a white circle outlined in black (and maybe orange) with a black, white, or possibly orange "5" on it. Like a racing car. It'll mean "5 Simple Keys."
  • The back window will have the evolution guys, the domain name, and something like "10,000 sq. ft. indoor unlimited golf and lessons."
  • The left rear bumper will say "Got 1 hour?" The right rear bumper will say "Learn to Read Greens" and the middle of the back bumper will have a big AimPoint logo.
  • We'll put the phone number on the back somewhere too, probably just beneath the window.

And another plus - you don't have to pay for a golf cart anymore on the course. Just strap the clubs on the back of this baby and you're good to go.

We joked about that already, yeah. :) The thing's only 5'1" wide, after all… :)

Buddy, you get hit with my beast above, you die. Be safe in that moving coffin, eh?

Hmmm, I'm not a ford fan, but I do like your wheels, and I don't know if I'd qualify your truck as " Beast " I'd rather get in my Duramax.. :-D

It has a programmer on it to bring the boost on the turbos up, AFE intake, Hearthrob exhaust system. The sucker comes 365 horse form the factory. It's got 500 easy. A Chevy man huh? Well, good luck with your Dura-maxipad there, boss! :-P If you go diesel, you gotta go Cummins! I had an F-250 with a banks system on it, but I totaled it on the highway. 18-wheeler hit me from behind goin 70. Didn't realize traffic had slowed down to 55 because he was on his cell phone!! :mad: Cracked the frame in the back in half. That big truck saved my life.

    • Since you said 3 months. I went with the approach of golf course density. No clue if most of them are private or not, but i might be a starting place to check.  Golf courses per square mile | Golf Channel Definitely the NE United States has a lot of golf courses near each other. Stay in a city of Hartford, CT and you would be able to be with in 2 hour drive of golf courses in three of those states.   
    • First thing is get a rule book, read it and definitely keep it in your bag.  You don't want to face issues with penalty shots or a DQ for accidentally violating a rule. In terms of how you approach the game, it depends on your personality.  Some people play better under pressure and others prefer a more calm environment.  Depending on what you are like, plan to play accordingly.  For example, you can choose to keep score and know your position at all times or just write it down and ignore it till you tally it up after 18 holes. Definitely practice as much as you can before the tournament, but don't try to make swing changes between now and then.  Also, try to figure out where you are gaining and more importantly losing strokes.  Then plan your practice sessions accordingly.  You definitely want to strengthen your good points and focus on minimising the damage your bad points cause. Finally, definitely ensure you are warmed up on the day before you tee off.  You don't want to take a couple of holes to warm up and find your rhythm.  Losing strokes aimlessly isn't good, especially in a competitive tournament
    • One other club I would suggest, especially if you can try it before you buy, is a mini driver.  You will get these clubs in around 15* of loft, and this is smaller than a driver but bigger than a 3 wood.  My friend uses one and finds it easier to hit off the turf.  Plus the shorter shaft means he has more control than the 10* driver he has almost stopped using.
    • So there was. Wonder if Vince McMahon has been in contact with his lawyers yet.
    • Just approach it as a learning experience and try to have fun. Let bad shots go and focus on the next shot.
