|Sadly, your cart is empty|
Technically, It's a Car
Three brightly-colored golf carts come on two sheets of metal. These very easy models are a great introduction to Metal Earth models for beginners.
Each Metal Earth model is laser etched in meticulous detail on 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see the Related Products below).
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for children under 14.

To those who define such things, golf carts are properly called "golf cars" because carts are not self-propelled. Let's get that out of the way first.
One JK Wadley of Texarkana was reputedly the first person to use a motorized cart on a golf course after seeing a three-wheeled cart transporting senior citizens to the grocery store in Los Angeles. He bought one and discovered that it didn't work very well on the golf course, but the idea was planted. The first electric golf cart was custom-made in 1932 but didn't catch on. Up into the 1950s, golf carts were meant for those who couldn't walk very far. By the mid-1950s able-bodied golfers thought that riding around looked pretty appealing and the carts became popular. The first gasoline-propelled cart was produced in 1957; although those can still be found, the vast majority of golf carts are still electric. Today golf carts are popular wherever safety, quiet, and lack of pollutants are desirable. For example, The Villages in Florida has a 100-mile (160-km) network of golf cart trails to serve 70,000 retirees, and you can find them cruising through most large airports.
You can pay anywhere from $1,000 to over $20,000 for a single golf cart. Those at the higher end include windshields, ball cleaners, coolers, and souped up engines or transmissions. We're pretty confident that you won't find three carts for $9.99 anywhere but here.
