Best buys in club cars - what's your pick?
Ford Laser TX3 4WD Turbo is a great drive and is now eligible for club plates.

Let's for a minute pretend you're in the market for a weekend toy, something that can be put on club plates. 

Across most of the country, that means it has to be 30 years old, so built no later than 1988.

And you have $30,000 to spend.

What would you buy? There is in fact a huge range of good gear out there and we've asked out in-house experts to put on their thinking gear.

Here's a rough list of what they've come up with so far.
