View Full Version : "Cat"-illac Cruis'in on Lake Gogebic

02-19-2008, 10:15 PM
The "Cat"-illac made its first trip from camp out onto Lake G. Its a stretched 1972 Panther with matching Cat cutter providing seating for 7. Vintage gear and a gas powered blender helped get the festivities started. We made some new friends as the party spilled over into the Gogebic Lodge. We're looking forward to a repeat. This is the first attempt to post pics so I apologize if it doesn't work.

OMG That is great! I would love to see more pics of that actually going down the trail. Can you really carry 7 people?? Love the vintage gear too - reminds me of some I wore as a kid! Post more pics if you got 'em. think snow!

how'd you get a track that long? that sled looks sick. i have 76 panther i should stretch out like that.

Yes it will seat 5 comfortably on the sled and two in the cutter. It is two tracks spliced together. Too bad we can't get a 2" paddle track under it. We'd have the longest mountain sled out there! One of the other guys may have some more pics to share.

Check out the custom air horn behind the windshield! We sure turned some heads on Lake G. And yes... chicks dig it! (especially when equipped with a gas powered drink blender!!!)

uller god....sorry but its not for sale. its for one day per winter to live it up on Lake G and put serious snowmobiling aside. it does get a few late night miles on it in the woods around camp after a few beverages too.
