I would take back my 93 Prowler.  That machine was a good ditch banger.

What was the top end on yours?  My sportfire maxed out at about 40mph.  First time on it I found the top end and wanted more.......

I had a 1976 Skidoo 340 RV free air that was unbelievibly fun to drive. Wasn't fast on the top-end,but gettin' up to trail speed was alotta fun! Cornered super for a buggy spring sled. I believe it crunched a tree the winter after I sold it. Too bad. RB

That would be my ole mans '77 AC Cross Country cat.  It was a liquid cooled 340 twin(huge twin carbs and twin pipes stock).  That thing flat out rocked!!  
Reason I wish we still had it?  Simple, that thing would absolutely dominate its class, and probably even the next class up, in drags and radar runs. hehe

Now that I think about it, I can't remember if that sled was a '71 or '77?
 I am getting the years from the Cross country cat and my old JD Trailfire mixed up....  I'm thinking the cat was the '71 the more I think about it.

Any of you remember??

phazerhater - I remember AC had a Cross-Country Cat in the late 70's (cool looking sled) but I don't recall them using that name in the early 70's.  You're probably correct with the '77 CC Cat.
