Over the years, we’ve seen some great custom golf carts, but it’s awfully hard to top this “Back to the Future”-inspired DeLorean ride.
David Heykants of Dual Divisions and Lucas Evanochko were asked to build the care in support of Red Deer College’s 30th annual golf tournament in Canada.
Walkaround plus button demo!

Heykants did the work of transforming the body of the golf cart so that it looked like the DeLorean Motor Company beauty, doing lots of custom metal work, including building the grill and outfitting the back of the cart, including the imprinted radiation warning sign. The duo then equipped the ride with a dashboard-mounted set of lit-up buttons just as they’re found in the Michael J. Fox classic which, when pressed, play back catchphrases and lines from the movie. Evanochko added a velcro mount for a 7-inch tablet to control music, which is played through a pair of Panasonic home theater speakers mounted inside the cart.
The DMC-12 cart also has its own flux capacitor that doubles as a cup or bottle holder. Electric blue lights that probably can attract and kill insects at night are on board.
The duo put in some 600 hours of work to create the spectacular finished product.
