Say it isn't so!

I just found out that my dad sold his 1974 Ski Whiz 444 to a guy for $100.00!!! He bought it new and it has 800 miles on it. The thing was in mint condition! It has always been garaged and never sat outside even one night. He also gave the guy a bunch of spare parts like new shocks, drive belts, and bogie wheels. He started and drove it every winter to keep it in perfect running condition. All for $100.00! :cray:

Guess I just needed to vent to someone. Here is a pic of one like it, but his was the 444, not the 344 pictured.

Thanks for the stroll down memory lane, my dad used to have a MF sled back when I was a little whipper snapper. I also thought it was neat looking. Vent away, glad we can be here for you!

We had 2 of these. The one us kids used had some hard miles on it and didn't survive. Dad just didn't drive his as much. They sure are a far cry from today's sleds in the performance department! However, they were really fun to just ride. Not so much power you had to worry about getting hurt!

When I think back, those really were fun times. I have a picture of me standing on top of my uncle's building holding the weather vane. A blizzard deposited a 30 foot bank in front of the door. I drove the snowmobile right to the top and climbed onto the roof. The trusty Ski Whiz crawled right up that bank!

My dad has a '72 and '73 arctic cat panthers still sitting in his barn. Both are still in mint condition the upholstery isn't even cracked on either of them. We rode the heck out of those things when we were little. I don't know what what my dad ever plans to do with them. He also has an old 1967 allis chalmers b-207 garden tractor in there. Someday I might restore that back into functioning condition. Thought it might be fun to try and make it look like an old Allis B model.

Randy Lang ; this sounds just like something my dad would have done, whenever I asked him what he was going to do with this or that, he wouls say, well son u can get these same things the way I got mine. he never gave or sold me any thing of his while he was living. but I have almost all his things now, I just had to buy my 2 brothers share out at time of estate settlement. vent on I hear u!

Bummer man! I know how you feel however, my dad sold his '74 Panther to a kid (who beat the hell out of it). I would have loved to have that sled!
