She is gas. Runs like a clock. I will really miss her, but it is time....

What is underneath the body of a Streetrod? My understanding is that they just add those bodies to existing golf cart frames and power trains. I'd love to know if they use Yamaha gas or Club Car electric or whatever they use.

Not to be too negative, but when I first got here I talked to some people about getting some kind of nice looking body on a golf cart and I was told that those bodies are much heavier than the standard golf cart body so you get much lower mileage.

I thought I read they are club carts with Kawasaki snowmobile engines.

They are built on a club car chassis Streetrod modifies the frame a bit to fit there body. What I will say is they do a great job of fitting the body on. They do take the time to do it right and it shows in the price.
One add on though. OEM Kawasaki engine parts will be starting to dry up. Not to be confused with all the Aftermarket stuff you find on the internet, which is not of the best quality. You can no longer buy a complete Kawasaki motor, just parts. Just be aware

A street rod has a true frame and a much larger motor. It is definitely not just a golf cart with a new body.

They are so different the way they drive. Fun cart is their design.
