Pimp up to par

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Inside -

TOP GEAR has long since creatively jumped the shark and the Aus­tralian ver­sion has been mer­ci­fully eu­thanased.

Fifth Gear looks, as ever, as if it’s about to run out of film, to say noth­ing of ideas. Fuel TV is all right if you’re 17 and sav­ing up for your first tatt.

There be­ing not a lot of mo­tor­ing on the box worth watch­ing, here’s an idea free of charge: Pimp My Golf Cart.

This is just one lurid im­age from a se­lec­tion sent in by Mark Hinchliffe’s dad. With some re­tire­ment vil­lages al­low­ing golf carts on the road , there’s a mar­ket for bling on the back nine — such as this Bent­ley­fied jig­ger.

We think it’d be a hit. The se­nior de­mo­graphic is grow­ing, so there are your rusted-on view­ers. Only thing is, it couldn’t be screened too late.
