ONE Short: Villages Golf Carts

ONE Short: Villages Golf Carts


(upbeat tune) (big band music) – [Deb] Here in The Villages, there’s about 55 thousand golf carts, over a hundred miles of golf cart paths, so it’s a way of
transportation and just fun. Like us, we had two
cars when we moved here. We got rid of one car,
and bought two golf carts, and that’s all we drive. Our car sits in the
garage for weeks at a time and it’s–the golf carts
are the first thing that come out of the garage. Each cart is unique in its own way, but some of ’em are an expression of their own personalities. – Al Capone, here. Hey! Shoot it man. (toy gun rattles) Hey, man. How are ya? Good to see ya in the Villages, baby. – I was born and raised in New York. Went to every game I could at the stadium. And the only reason
why–one of the reasons why I moved to The Villages, is now I can go to spring trainings so I didn’t get rid of my Yankees. The cart says that you can
take a girl outta New York, but you can’t take New
York outta the girl. – I seen in and I said, “I gotta have it.” It’s a ’35 Chevy, ‘cuz I was born in ’35. And then that Laurel
and Hardy on the back, I got that from a friend of mine who was going through a bad divorce. She was busting everything in the house, and he says, “Take that” and I did. That was about 50 years ago. – I’m a retired firefighter. I did 31 years in a county
department east of San Francisco and like it says on the front, my retired engine was Engine 87. (bell rings) (exhaust putters) – I was sittin’ in the garage drinkin’ back when I used to drink, and I’ve had it since ’04 and it’s got about 34,000 miles on it. I been puttin’ miles–This is all I drive. It’s got a lotta power, cuz it’s got a small V8 under the hood. (funky music) – The Streetrods are
unique in their own way. They are all custom and they’re the most
unique carts in the world. We have over 420 of these runnin’ around, do not have two identical. Everybody kinda makes ’em their own. It’s just a blast. (upbeat brass band)
