Would be cool to have a 77 RXL to go with my 77 TXL but I don't think thats going to happen. As for Polaris Indys, 1984 Indy 400
1996 440 XCR

There's a lot of cool old iron I would love to own. Reality is I would have no time to enjoy them. I haven't touch my 78 srx in over 10 yrs. When I do have time to play I would much rather be on the new sleds of today than those of yester years.

I'm with ya man. I have a few buddies who are into the vintage thing big time ... and they have some awesome stuff that wins them awards on a pretty regular basis. But if there's snow on the ground, I would rather be out riding vs. walking around a vintage show & reminiscing about the old days. To each their own - not knocking anyone who's into it. But if I'm going to ride, I'm riding the new stuff!

My first sled was a Rupp American and my friend up the hill had a Nitro...so some model of a badass Nitro. Also like Sno Jets so one of those as well.

There is only one sled I want for collector purposes, its in the same category as my old 87 LT500R Quadzilla wheeler (never should have sold that!).
I'd like a final year 2002 Thundercat 1000 in great shape, in stock form, with low miles. (I know I know they make the Thundercat again with the 998 Turbo)
