George Fortin Z-Cart

Wouldn’t it be great if everything we drove made us feel like a 6-year old again? Well, that’s exactly the feeling that George Fortin gets when he takes his all-electric, home built Z-Cart out for a spin. George is actually a Realtor by trade, but his real passion comes from slapping engines on anything he can get his hands on. Always the tinkerer, George was inspired to built the Z-Cart after looking at his son’s remote control car. His goal was to build something that was light weight, durable and more importantly fun to drive. The Z-Cart is constructed from recycled polyethylene with aluminum bracing, and is powered by a 72-volt DC electric motor that gets its juice from four neatly concealed lead acid batteries. Fortin then utilized basic parts like off-the-shelf dune buggy wheels, a retractable charging cord and an air intake that’s made from a piece of PVC tubing that he found at Lowes – talk about cool! The Z-Cart is great and will hopefully cause manufacturers to think outside the box when it comes to fun. After all, there’s no point owning a car if it doesn’t put a smile on your face.
