Twin-Track Treat: 1974 Raider Double Eagle

Snow Hog: 1974 AMF Harley-Davidson 440

Don’t worry, this isn’t turning into Snowmobile Finds, it’s still mainly a car-based site. I can’t help but think of these classic snowmobiles now that a few million of us are locked into winter a month early. We saw… more»

Snow Kitty: 1973 Arctic Cat Kitty Cat

So yeah, 2020 has thrown us yet another curveball with winter coming basically a full month earlier than usual here in the upper-Midwest. With that kick in the… uh.. gut, I couldn’t resist showing the first snowmobile here on… more»

Cold Comfort: 1970s Sno’ Coupe

In some locations, snowmobiles offer the most practical, and in some cases, the only form of transport when the weather turns nasty. Their greatest weakness is the fact that they don’t offer users the most comfortable traveling experiences. However,… more»

Snow Bike: 1982 Honda XL250S

Low Budget Retro Project: 1969 Ski-Doo Snowmobile

If you live in the North as I do, snowmobile season is starting to heat up. While the mountains in 2019 are filled with high-horsepower, long-track, light-weight sleds, 50 years ago, this one was the king of the backcountry…. more»

Stored Since 1983: 1973 Raider 44TT

As someone who grew up in the golden age of snowmobiling – the 1960s and 1970s – anything unusual like this 1973 Raider 44TT is solidly on my radar. They’re rare and they usually end up being among the… more»

These two 1972 Ski-Doo T’NT’s have been stored in a barn since 1983! They can be found here on Craigslist with an asking price of only $1,000 for the pair. The ad says they are 100% complete but don’t… more»

Side-By-Side Snowmobile: 1978 Ski-Doo Elite

This 1978 Ski-Doo Elite is so far above anything that we had when I was a kid growing up in snow country. We had old, used, usually somewhat beat-up small snowmobiles that we ended up repainting and trying to… more»
