The genius of some automotive enthusiasts never ceases to amaze us. Autoweek recently found this remarkably oddball tow truck built from – you guessed it – four golf carts and a Pontiac Grand Am.
The creator of this contraption is Mike Lemire, the foreman of the auto shop at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California. Apparently he doesn’t throw anything away, because when he needed a service truck to support the casino’s fleet of 200 golf carts, Lemire went to the scrap heap.
The wrecker’s front and rear suspension comes from a Club Car, the steering column from a GEM cart, the nose and frame from an E Z GO, the 26hp engine from a Honda lawnmower, and the brakes from a Pontiac. The project came together during down time in the shop over the course of eight months and at a price of just $381.
