    Default Our Family's Second Snowmobile

    Our first snowmobile was a 69 Panther that was under powered and rather unreliable. Dad upgraded two years later with a 72 Panther that purred like a Cat. (No pun intended) Here's a story from SnoGoer and what they had to say about the 72 Arctic Cat....

    Pretty cool little article Gary. Can you imagine a production run of 100,000 sleds? And this was at a time when there were probably close to 100 manufacturers, if not more. So it's not like they had no competition.

    I have several vintage acquaintances that still ride 72 Panthers regularly on vintage rides so their popularity has not diminished in the vintage world. No question, they are an extremely comfortable sled to ride. In fact, if my memory serves me correctly, my brother had one for many years and he was not exactly a Cat guy. Guess he just couldn't find fault with the ride.
