Hoped to see the Kitten, but it wasn't in the yard. Maybe I'll catch them on the way back in a few days.
Bill keeps the cool stuff in the storage buildings in the yard. He has some sweet snow cats that are kept out of the sun and in the shade most of the time. It is worth your time to get there when he is open to view the rare and exotic snow cats and other snow cat related artifacts. I usually visit once yearly to see the really good stuff that is kept hidden. It is worth the effort and time to stop during normal business hours....

Bob if you are close by when Bill (Snotrans) is open be sure to look at this 1404 custom Imp that he usually keeps under cover. It is really well done and also for sale. I may have to look at it again for myself.... Get some pics of it for the forum as it is really nicely done and ready for the snow.

Thiokol 1404 Imp,V4 Ford, 12 sp.,
front and rear winch, new tracks, this
is a one of a kind custom machine in
great condition, low hours, rear
seating and roll over protection

Mikey (Snowsnake Operations) asked me to steal those yellow seats. I refused, but didn't see them or the cat anyway.

The Imp with the yellow seats still shows on the website. Last time I was there it was hidden away in a storage building to the north. Maybe Bill (Snotrans) will confirm if he still has it. I thought it was pretty cool and appears to be in like new condition. Let us know if you still have this one Bill.

I am planning a trip to Weiser to see what is new in the next couple months and I will try to take some more pics if it is still available.

Thank you for your comments and complimentary exposure of some our equipment on this forum. As MT. Topper ( Bill) has said, I do keep several select snowcat in enclosed storage and yes I still do have the pimped Imp with the yellow seats and others that are for sale. I will look forward to your return visits to discuss equipment and "old snow tales"! Thanks again, Snotrans (Bill and Mary Guthrie)

I believe you are violating the FF Terms of Service by not taking any open shot when presented.

Spotted in McCall, ID. That last one would make an interesting 'snow cat'. It's in dire need of restoration though.

I have a 4T2 (Trackmaster like in the photos) that I've clocked at 38 but that was a slight incline so it may do 42 but not sure. The 10-person 4T10 will do 35. Of course one reason why is that these puppies aren't high-floaters. As you probably know, they were originally designed to be broad-use ATV's but still do great in most snow conditions but not deep powder. I've never seen one modified to use wider tracks...

anyone seen one with wide-tracks?
