Maybe a mountain golf cart? Like a Polaris Ranger?
No. This was dune buggy like, in size somewhere between an ATV and a dune buggy (closer to dune buggy size), but with lower clearance and, I think, a very outsized motor for the size of the vehicle. I've seen several of these things around town, and they can go really fast on flat, cleared surfaces.
Hmmm...there are some decidedly not flat, cleared surfaces out in your neck of the woods. Strange.
IMHO, people should just O instead.
Low clearance in the woods. Brilliant.
