you don't remember the Newfie?  He had bought something similar to that years ago.  I must admit though, the way he toured around in the wilderness, from the looks of the pictures he'd taken, I bet it was the cat's ass to have.

Well.  I added another vintage to the stable.  '76 SnoTwister.  I've wanted one of these since 1976 when they first hit the snow.  This one is about as original as they come.  Original belly pan, seat, tunnel, cowling, motor.  I also have the stock skis, handle bars, airbox, pipes, headlight, clutches, etc to make it completely stock if I ever want to.  This one started life as a 340 and that is the motor in it now.  I also got 440 cylinders, pistons and head in the deal so I could turn it into a 440 if I wanted to.  I got 2 big totes of spare parts with the deal.

This thing is in almost perfect condition.

I came home for a couple of days to check on things.  Headed back to Phoenix on the 24th.  We have a busy week planned in the Phoenix area but will be headed toward Palm Springs on Feb 1st.  King of the Hammers starts Feb 2nd.   We will be out in the desert having fun.  I'm helping with a couple teams this year.  Just pit support and prerunning stuff.  I'm pretty excited for KOH this year.  Last year was about the most fun I had ever had.  This year it will be even more fun because I'm in my own Moho and I will be helping a team I hooked up with last year.

It's set up for 3/8 mile ovals.  It will hit around 70 at the end of a 400' straight away.  Top speed is probably around 80 the way it's geared.  Throw some more gear at it and it would do 90.  Not sure it will go much faster than that.

I had carbon fiber idler wheels and the 1 let go causing the track to grab the track adjustment bolts.

350lbs.  The 340 made about 72HP stock.  This one makes a little more.  Ported cylinders, big carbs, tight heads and Aaen pipes.  I would guess this one is making about 85HP.  It's a ripper for sure.  It gets around the track much better than my Motoski.

I just couldn't pass it up.  I've wanted a '76 Twister for almost my entire life.  I absolutely did not need another vintage sled and I didn't need another race sled but this thing is in such good condition that it will only get more valuable as the years go by.
