I'm into vintage cats. I've got a 1972 Panther and a 1974 Pantera. The Pantera needs a new exhaust manifold (I broke it in half jumping. lol) and the Panther's got a cylinder melted into the block (third time it's happened in a year, actually. Maybe I drive too hard.)

I kind of want a newer sled (or at least something liquid-cooled) to bash around on. It would be cool to get my two sleds in running condition and just bring them to shows. There's an annual drunken-guys-on-fast-old-sleds meet near my home every February. It's cool -- I get to see all these old sleds like the SnoBikes and stuff. People bring all kinds of wierd stuff.
C'mon, guys, don't rub it in! I don't have a snowmobile, as I'm the only person in my entire family cursed to live in the sultry South. As soon as I'm old enough, I'll moved up North where I can have some wintery fun. My parents lived in norhtern Michigan for 30 years, and would race snowmobiles up and down my family's runway. But not me, I get 100*+ humid summers and 50* dry winters! Oh boy, I can hardly wait - the fun and excitement of a southern winter!:rolleyes:
At this point, my idea of "snow" is one inch, just baaaarely enough to do donuts and powerslides behind the K-Mart (until the security Daewoo comes - we leave rather quickly then). Alas, I can only think of one think good about having less than 5" of snow. We can go out to an open field and tow snowdiscs (aka saucers) behind our ATVs without needing a tractor to pull us out.

hey bobr: i guess you don't get snowdays then. one time school was canceld because we got 3 feet of snow in one night.
If there is even a chance of snow or ice, school will be canceled. By that, I mean if the weather man says "Light snow is possible for the afternoon hours", businesses and schools don't open. It's mostly because the school system is paranoid, but the city has no salt trucks either. Also, people sue (usually for "child endangerment") if a school bus slides into or collides with another vehicle. My dad's secretaries even demand to be driven home early in the day if they hear about the weather while at work! Besides, local drivers don't know how do deal with ice , and slam on the brakes when they hit it:). (Insurance time!)

Hehe...last winter, this guy who works at our farm (yeah, he's mexican -- doesn't know how to drive on ice, it was his first winter here) almost slid into the side of my bus when it was pulling out of my driveway. Hehehe.. I was sitting right behind the driver and I could see the mexican guy turn his wheels and stand on the brakes. I saw him screaming and gesturing, too. :D
Bob--there are advantages to living down south. Por ajemple (whoops...spanish...) For example, you can drive your RCs all winter and don't have to worry about putting on a parka. Of course, in Minnesota (where both Arctic Cat and Polaris were founded) we can sport our colorful snowmobile brand-advertising coats. Heheh. ...some people even use their sleds to get to work and school during the winter. Oh, another advantage: no salt trucks = no rusty cars. 'nuff said.

You would think Washington would get alot of snow, or atleast a few times a year... well that just aint happening, where i live, we get squat, nothing, notta trace. Is global warming the cause of this "no-snow" for Washington? I dont get it.
