So my snowmobile post last week didn’t exactly set the world on fire (whomp whomp), but at least one good thing did come of it.
CC contributor Aaron65 posted a link to this video in the comments. If you like old snowmobiles, it’s definitely worth a watch. It features late ’60s snowmobile racing at Eagle River, WI – complete with race footage, spliced-in cuts from a Ski-Doo ad, a young Peter Jennings running a Panther off the trail on his Olympique, and a string of oval track bloopers, all interspersed with scenes from a Mad Men-esque post-race party.
It may be a little biased toward the yellow machines (may?) due to its being produced by Bombardier. But still, you’ll see lots of other makes in the mix: Cats, Polarises… I think I even spotted a Mercury. Better check it out!
