I used to tow am Arctic Cat Panther 340 behind my 71 Monte.

Always got stock, always was cold, why the heck did I ever purchase a snowmobile???????

Never took any pictures.

No pictures of towing but this is the trailer I built and towed several times including one year to carlisle pa. By the way its the same trailer hitch that Bruce used on his car, I bought it from him.

Steve, that's right, I almost forgot.

I also just remembered that along with the snowmobile, I pulled a 1963 Triumph TR-3B (in 1973) to a painter's garage for a paint job, then home when it was finished.

Oh, here are pictures of the hitch I sold to Steve.

My older brother still owns the TR-3B and is taking it to get some ideas on a total restoration. My younger brother Dave and I finished it (amateur restoration / paint job) in 1975.

This picture is when we picked it up in Parma Ohio in 73 and brought it to Utica, Michigan for repairs.

Sorry, just got this old man all wound up!

Yup it's still on the car although I sold that trailer but here's what it looks like now. Got a 33 footer now, monte cant pull that one.
