Busting drifts in the ditches along the highway in South Dakota when I was a teenager. I would love to get out and ride a sled again.


Anybody here know the history of the The Fox Trac snowmobiles?? I don't remember much about it except I had fun on it. I think it was a single carb twin cylinder roughly 400cc.
I think they were actually made by the Ford Motor Co. and were sold through their farm implement dealers.
Sled technology has changed a little since then. It's now fun, reliable(for the most part) and getting suck...er motion impaired is usually not too common, depending on the critical mechanism that connect's the seat to the handlebars.

Tree magnet's remain strong, if not stronger than 15+ year old sled's.
