He had a at least 2 more KK's I didn't get photos of. 

I think that last guy is the guy always listing a whole pile of very rare Cat stuff on Vintage sleds.  I've heard he is a weird guy and asking a huge pile of money for anything he has.  Like writes down plate numbers and takes photos of people coming to look at stuff.  He is suppose to have the Evil Knievel King Kat, but won't let anyone take photos of it.

A friend of mine has 2 TNT 340 singles and probably a half dozen 340 single engines.  Not 335 motors called 340's.  I'm not a Ski-Doo guy, but I think they only make those 1 or 2 years.

I know there is some minor difference between 340 singles and 335 but not sure what it is

This weekend was the Lancaster Grand Prix in Lancaster, NH. Here's a pic from SledNH.com. I'll post more later when Dirt Dummy puts up his photos from the weekend :good:

Ok, already, I get it! 

You are likely correct as I do remember those black vents on the hood you speak of. That is not a pic of our's, it was pulled from the internet but looked exactly like it, I thought.

That's awesome :good:  

It's very rare to see a car pulling sleds here in the northeastern US, but when I've been in Quebec I've seen it quite a bit.
