Actor Michael Douglas has joined with Galpin Auto Sports, the crew of MTV’s Pimp My Ride, to auction off his “pimped out” golf cart for The Motion Picture & Television Fund on June 5th.
Galpin Auto Sports, the company that recently replaced West Coast Customs as the creative master-minds behind MTV’s hit show Pimp My Ride, customized the golf cart.
The golf cart, a 2002 EZ-GO painted bright blue with yellow and orange tribal flames and fitted with a unique molded dashboard, features top-of-the-line electronic gadgets, including satellite television and a cigar humidor, not to mention the tablet PC in the steering wheel and a diamond encrusted golf ball washer.
The interior has brand new premium tuck and roll white leather seats with blue piping and chrome wheels added as a finishing touch.
A new set of Cleveland Clubs and bag are also included with the cart.
“This golf cart is a one-of-a-kind original and unlike anything I have ever seen,” said Michael Douglas. “One lucky bidder will drive away with this pimped-out masterpiece, and also help support The Motion Picture & Television Fund.”
Bidding will run from June 5-15th, with the initial bid starting at $1,000.
Douglas used the custom-made cart in the recent Michael Douglas & Friends Presented By Lexus celebrity golf event.
The celebrity golf tournament, which also raised money for The Motion Picture & Television Fund, will be telecast nationally on NBC on June 10.
