Default coupe or t style

ZZ, I was wondering if you prefer the coupe style or t bucket style and why? Also, What the weight compared to a stock cart? I would love to copy this idea on a smaller version using a mobility scooter for kids to young teens. Any advise you could give based on experience with the carts.

Thanks Shawn

The black roadster (don't want to be anal but a coupe has a steel roof) definitely wins on style points but the T bucket is much easier to get in and out of - I'm not as flexible as I once was - hitting yer 60's will do that . Also the little pickup box holds more than the trunk and gets used a lot.
As far as weight goes, they are easily double of a stock cart with their aluminum frames and plastic bodies - I build with steel plus the wheels and tires are heavier. Problem solved on the last T bucket by using a 12HP 5700 RPM motor and 400 Amp controller versus the stock 3HP 3800 RPM stock motor.
I think above all, wheel and tire choice makes the car. I've seen lots of custom carts with stock size wheels and they just look goofy to me...

Caught up with the first T bucket cart I built
6 years ago, still cruisin' in the AZ sunshine First time I got to take side by side comparison - seems to be some family resemblance
