You have a sweet stable there. You sound like you are a Cat buff, so I will ask you a burning question that I have had for years. Why did they have 2 different hood styles for the Panther in "71" ??

399 Kohler had the same hood minus the vents along the bottom edge. They actually had 3 hoods in 71, bigmouth was the other.
