Another idea for a really interesting golf cart: all white, with van Gogh's Starry Night painted on the hood. Vinework on the frame supports, so that it looks like the painting is beneath a grape arbor. I was going to do something like that with the VW Bus I used to have, back in the mid-80's but it needed too much bodywork and I sunk my extra funds into bondo and sheet metal instead of hiring an artist.

According to my wife the cart I have has to be my dream cart. Because I am not getting another cart anytime in the near future.

Thanks photo1902, that sounds very interesting.
My cart is a 2017 Yamaha Yesteryear cart that I purchased at LSL, and I wasn't offered an option of a back-up camera.
However I'm taking my cart into Gordon's Garage for servicing next week, so I'll ask about a back-up camera then.
I love TOTV -- lots of great information!

4 wheel brakes. Having only rear brakes on the Yahama is almost worthless on wet roads. Applying brakes pitches the weight of the cart on the front wheels and off the rear wheels where the only brakes are, very easy to skid.

I bought from Yamaha a backrest. This moves you forward about 3 to 4 inches to reach the gas and brake but also makes the steering wheel closer and more comfortable to you. It simply hooks over you're regular backrest. If a taller driver needs the cart then remove the back rest and put in the basket behind the seat.

Gracie, dear, LOL!

I have to have luxury seats. I’d like to have a nice sound system. SILENT self-cancelling turn signals.

If you are a fabricator, I have an idea for a secure area. This does not mean wallets, purses or other valuables.

I’d also like an onboard compass, thermometer, warming or cooling cup holders, cruise control.

That's an excellent alternative, I hadn't even thought of that. First choice still would be an adjustable seat, because with a backrest, it's also moving your thighs further off the edge of the seat and that might feel weird.
