If you're an 80-year-old resident of a retirement village who has a need for more than school-zone speed, Cruise Car has got the wheels for you.
The Sarasota, Florida-based company is showing off its line of solar-powered golf carts this week at Solar Power 2006 in San Jose, Calif. The top-of-the-line Cruise Car can reach 65 m.p.h., considerably faster than the average golf cart, for a cool $7,000. Or you can just get the solar panel, which sits on its roof, for $1,500.
"They are street legal in 35-mile-an-hour zones," says sales director Thomas McCoy, sounding more like a Ferrari dealer. The company has sold some in Sun City, Arizona, and other golf-retirement communities in Florida.
Look at how old that is! So where are they now, darn it. I want one! Can’t go over 35 mph on any of our streets, anyway. If I need to go out of town, I take an airplane because I am seriously over any kind of long drive. So this would be perfect. Neither of my two sons who always borrow my car when theirs has issues would borrow this one. LOL
