1978 Arctic Cat Pantera 5000 F/C

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

I simply wanted to get it running right again and enjoy it. I wanted a cheap sled to get me into snowmobiling and this was it. Plus it has plenty of power to boot.

What motivated you to start your project?

I have always wanted a snowmobile and I knew this one was sitting around, not being used and just begging to be run and loved again.

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the sled?

Nothing really creative was done. Disassembled the skis to put a fresh coat of paint on them, washed the sled, scrubbed the seat, and polished the hood to make it shiny again.

What are you most proud of?

I’m most proud of the fact I have a 40 year old classic sled that runs and looks good.

 

What do other people say about your sled?

Some people like it because it’s an old sled while others say it’s a money pit, but they say that about anything snowmobiling related.
