Beach Cars and Golf Carts

I recently read an article in the New York Times about the rise in popularity of "beach cars" (tiny cars that you drive small distances like to the beach or town that are mostly "open air cars"). I grew up going to Boca Grande, Florida for Christmas and Spring Break and the island is dominated by golf carts and beach cars. We had a fire engine red golf cart that I loved cruising around in. The island has designated golf cart/bike paths all over the island so you never had to worry about being on the street with cars. The NYT article described people paying top dollar for rare beach cars that come complete with wicker seats and a hefty price tag. I love the look of them! Maybe I'm biased from my Boca Grande days but the tinier and more colorful the car (especially in pinks and corals!) the cuter, in my opinion! What do you guys think? I'd get some pretty odd stares if I tried to cruise around in one in NYC.
