I went with the Yesteryear because I wanted the Yamaha gas engine, paid $11,000.

I have a yamaha gas 11 hp as well as the 11.5 streetrod that's engine is club car as well as stretched aluminum frame. The street rod rides and performs much better than the yamaha. If I could afford two street rods, I would have them. They are timeless.

The wife and I looked at both Yesteryear and Streetrod carts over the past two days and I think the Streetrod is a far better quality vehicle. Not only is the craftsmenship better but the components seem to be much better in the Streetrod than in the Yesteryear cart. There was, as has been mentioned in previous posts, a difference in price between the two...but not significantly so considering that Streetrod seems to have the better cart. There was only about a four thousand dollar difference between similarily equiped carts.

We're leaning towards the Streetrod but they don't accept trade-ins where The Villages Golf Cart Store does. The Villages offered us six thousand dollars for our trade in (a 2009 Yamaha electric cart, black body with gold pin stripping, under carriage lights, overhead storage bin, wood grain dash, high speed gear, windhsield screen, big tires with mag wheels...the cart is just about fully loaded and looks/operates like a new cart). I think the offered price is the wholesale value of the cart and we're considering selling it privately.

Any suggestions on how to sell our cart? I think six thousand five hundred dollars would be a fair asking price...any suggestions/opinions regarding price and how to sell would be greatly appreciated.

We currently own two Yamaha carts (one gas and one electric) and we're looking to replace the electric cart with another gas cart...and it looks like it may be a Streetrod or Yesteryear cart.

I know someone who is about to sell theirs...if your interested..send me a PM

Default Street Rod Verses?

I have been out of touch from the forum on surgical leave but have been reading. Zummy is on the mark 100%. I have had the opportunity to work on and drive the models talked about the past few days and the finest production custom cart built is the StreetRod. This cart looks good, rides well & has an oil filtered, oil pumped engine built buy Kawasaki. This cart on a Club Cart frame gets my vote. They are not cheep but you do get what you pay for.

streetrod $22K, yesteryear $11K, streetrod better quality, duh, depends on your budget, hello, myself I think the yesteryear wins remember these are golf carts, I can buy a new car for $22K, btw, I don't believe streetrods are new carts, I think they are on a rebuilt club car chassis. just an aside, the cart in my avatar was rebuilt in 2004 has air conditioning (the white unit on the roof) and on board heat, I paid $2,200 for it three years ago (that would be the equivalent of 10 streetrods) and it has performed flawlessly ever since, spend what you are comfortable with....gn

Street Rods are almost double the price of a YY Cart. I think a lot of people can't tell the difference except for the little porthole window. OK, I'm a girl. So ignore what I just said.

Default How many Yesteryear Carts in TV?

I am looking at both the Yesteryear and Streetrod Carts.

Does any one here belong to the Yesteryear Group and do they have a web site? I have found the one for Streetrods.

They both look longer than a 2 seat yamaha. Do they take up too much room in the garage?
