Vintage snowmobile vehicle


Recommended Posts

I  thought some of you - especially living in colder climes - might like to see this.

 

I think that is a BOMBARDIER B 12

 

No idea about date or location, it has GUSI on the side.

Person walking ahead tied by rope to the vehicle - presumably checking for snow drifts!

There's another snowmobile  with GUSI on the side on Alamy -

WWII Deuce-and-a-Half Truck. Indestructible. Hundreds of thousands made. You'll find them all over the world.
