Vintage Snowmobiles by Jon D. Bertolino
Vintage Snowmobiles: The Golden Years 1968-1982
Ever broken a bogie? Ever lose your recoil? Ever seen machine parts scattered on the ground like a trail of bread crumbs?
If so, then you must be familiar with the world of vintage snowmobiles.
This is a great book for those who love old snowmobiles. A couple of my favorites are in this book. Back when I was a middle school student, our family had the candy-apple red Northway 340. The Northway could climb, it could pull, but boy was it slow. The Northway was ideal for pulling your fish house off the lake, but when you had it wide open the Northway could throw you off like a wild horse.
Then there was the Yamaha Enticer 250. I loved that machine. It only went about 60mph, but it was great on trails. If you ever got stuck in deep snow, the machine was light enough even for a middle school student to lift back onto the trail. Great vintage snowmobiles like these are sometimes cheap to buy, but expensive to run.
Take a look at the past in this great book about vintage snowmobiles by Jon D. Bertolino. And remember, oil is sometimes cheaper than parts!
