Which sled would you bring back into production and how would you change it? I don't have as many years on sleds as some of you graybeards so I am choosing a recent sled, the Wildcat. Cat needs to get back into the 700 class and the ZR 700 name is permanently tarnished after Cat's recent attempt for a 700 twin, so I am going with the Wildcat 700 twin. Slap an efi motor in it with the 02 cross country package, a pipe temp sensor like the zr 5 has, and change the color scheme back to green, white, and purple. What sled would you bring back?

You know what zert im gonna have to agree with you on that one bring back the wildcat with all the things you mentioned it would be a kick ass sled. But one thing leave it black wiht a little green on it and purple d**n that would be a sweet looking sled or kinda do a 2 tone paint job. O s**t no i want one LOL. I know its a polaris but d**n all them old polaris sleds in the wedge chassis look sweet i like them much better than the new edge chassis. HEY ARCTIC CAT BRING BACK THE WILDCAT.

I liked the late '70's Polaris TX sleds. Remember the TX-L 340? That was one hell of a runner in it's time. Bring back that retro looking hood design with the offset headlight, put the edge suspension under it with a 900 twin.... Yeah baby, YEAH!

How about the Prowler style with the CC package park a 800 twin EFI in her and weeeeeeeee. I always liked the way the hood opened up and was easy to get at everything.
I agree with the 70's TX sleds. The TXL 340 was a rocket. I always liked 340 rockets. How about the 245, 250 and 340 RV's from Ski-Doo or the Sonic from Moto-Ski?
