VINTAGE SNOWMOBILE OF THE WEEK
MAY 3 - 2004

1970 SKI DOO - OLYMPIQUE 335

HERE IS A PICTURE OF MYSELF WITH MY 3 BROTHERS AND MY GREAT UNCLE MARTIN.  I CAN REMEMBER BACK IN 1967 AND 1968, THE LOCAL SKI DOO DEALER USED TO TAKE A SLED TO ALL OF THE PROPERTY OWNERS AND LET THEM TRY IT.  I WAS NEVER THERE AS WE ONLY WENT TO THE COTTAGE ON THE WEEKENDS. 

I WOULD ALWAYS SEE THE TRACKS IN THE FIELDS AND HOPED THAT ONE DAY I WOULD BE ABLE TO TRY A SNOWMOBILE.

MY FATHER BOUGHT US OUR FIRST SLED IN THE FALL OF 1969.  I WENT WITH HIM TO VILLE DES LAURENTIDES, QUEBEC TO SEE THE SNO JET AND SKI DOO DEALERS.

HE DECIDED ON THE 18 HP 335 CC.  WE PAID JUST OVER $ 800.00 CANADIAN FOR THAT SLED.

THE DAY THEY DELIVERED IT TO OUR HOUSE, I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW LOUD IT WAS.  AFTER THEY SHOWED US HOW TO OPERATE THE SLED, MY BROTHER SAID, COME ON, JUMP ON AND WE WILL GO FOR A SHORT RIDE.

MY BROTHER AFTER A DAY ON THE SLOPES!

I MADE HIM PROMISE THAT HE WOULD NOT GO FAST.  HE SAID NO PROBLEM.  AS SOON AS HE HIT THE ROAD, HE BOOTED IT AND FLEW DOWN THE ROAD TO THE CORNER WHICH WAS 1/4 MILE AWAY.  I WAS SO MAD AT HIM THAT I GOT OFF AND SWORE NEVER TO GET BACK ON AGAIN.  I WALKED BACK TO THE HOUSE.

WELL, THE REST IS HISTORY!  I LOVED THAT SLED.  IT NEVER LET ME DOWN AND ALWAYS GOT ME HOME.
