    well i dont golf or anythign what about a junkyard or something?

    but how fast will i go with that?
    The "19th hole" is the bar at the end of the course. Thus, "forgetting where they parked" could come into play.
    My opinion is my own.

    Or you could just go to the golf course and rent one then drive it home.

    Maybe one of these fine carts would be in your price range:



    I think these are/were in San Jose, but you'd have to call and find out. And you'd have to find out what their number is, or what the name of the used-parts-establishment is. Really though, I don't even know how much those would go for. I'm guessing 100$.

    Anyway, if the electric cart idea doesn't pan out, have you given any thoughts to powering your next project off of moon rocks? I just heard they're full of helium-3, which holds some potential for fusion.

    Yes you can buy the moon rocks off of ebay for a few dollars. You just put them in an air tight container and capture the released gases. Push that into a lawn mower motor and youčve got power.

    I've heard you can use a battery and a tank of water to create the hydrogen, then you can pipe it back to the engine and use the engine to recharge the battery. You might try something like that!
