Default New (old) golf cart runabout -

Been looking for one for a few years now, don't mind walking EXCEPT when I'm tryin' to actually see some progress on projects - shop's a little over 100' from where I usually work, and that's where my fasteners, etc, live - Been using the ZTR as a runabout when my patience runs out, less than ideal for several reasons -

So 4 days ago this ad showed up on CL

https://corvallis.craigslist.org/snw...433819402.html

it'd been listed for 2 hours at the time - called, fully expecting it to be GONE - it wasn't, and the guy said he'd hold it til midafternoon to give me time to unload the little trailer and get there.

The windshield is NOT crazed, that's just frost; everything else is as stated in the ad - nearly new tires, less than a year on the batteries, runs good. Also came with a complete weather enclosure and a storage cover (the tan thing on the back)

Surprise, already scheming on front/rear receiver hitches and a mini-pickup bed to replace the (useless to me) dual golf bag rack...

The guy's hard luck story is real; when I found out he's trying to get enough $$$ to go back to Minnesota to take care of his (dying from heart arrhythmia) mom, I reached back into my wallet for the $100 "contingency" fund I usually carry - he gave me a funny look, I told him I'd been where he is and to pass it forward.

We parted as new friends with a BUNCH of shared interests after another hour or so. A good day in SEVERAL ways... Steve

Oh, for when the ad finally goes away - asking price was $400 in the ad, here's the pics -

Nice find. Would not mind finding one myself for that price.

Nice!!!! with the extra $100. We have been treated with a free meal two times for what reason I have no idea. We have done the same ourselves and hopefully leaving people scratching there heads. One meal I think was because I took off my hat in a restaurant before I sat down where several other guys had theirs on and the couple sitting next to us at a different table and had their kids with them and the waitress said that that was who paid our bill.
