Congrats to all the finds! That's the best part.

Choosing 5 winners is very difficult with all the great finds here and it was a pleasure to look through them all again.

    That Alouette deserved the titles. By far, my favorite sled in the thread. I would trade my gonads for it.

    When in doubt, use full throttle!!!  It may not improve the situation, but it will end the suspense.

    Thank You!  I'm grateful for this site, so we can all keep our passion of vintage sleds alive and searching for the ultimate find!  For me it all started when I was 14 years old and my dad brought home two 1968 Johnson Skee Horses in 1972 and continues to this day.  The last 20 years I've been searching back yards and farms for old sleds, and I've found many.  When I got the tip that a farm 3 miles from home had a couple sleds to get rid of that I thought were your common trail machines, I was in no hurry to check them out, but still excited.  You can't imagine the rush I had when I pulled those old tarps back and found these two great pieces of snowmobile history!  This find proves, you never know what is left out there to uncover!  Thanks to all the judges for their hard work, I look forward to judging the 2016 finds!

    Thanks!

    Congrats to the winners and losers. I can't imagine the sleds that got pulled outta the wood work this past year and am looking forward to seeing what is un-earthed this year.

    I'd rather eat crumbs with bums than eat steaks with snakes.

    Congrats to all the winners -- and honestly all that entered.   What a year we had -- some fantastic finds in 2015 now doubt.  It was incredibly difficult to pick the list- but was a blast to go back through the whole thread and re-read all the stories and photos. 

    Looking forward to FOTY 2016

    Congradulations  to Joe for winning with his great sleds. If I would have voted they were my choice also. I also want to thank everyone that voted for my Amf ski daddler xx1800. I am more than pleased to place out of all the beautiful sleds found and saved in 2015. I know how hard it is to pick out your top five votes, I was a judge in 2010.

    Proud to be named Honorable Mention! I know the sled itself was not rare, but the story with it , and where it wound up was pretty cool! Vaughn hasnt put the original hood on it yet as far as I know. I will post some pics of it as soon as I get them. Congrats to all the winners, and happy hunting in 2016!

    Wow, what a surprise. There were so many great finds this year. The number of race sleds found tucked away was amazing. Thanks for the votes, 3rd, wow, I didn't see that coming. With the number of great and rare finds to pick from, that had to be hard decisions. Thanks again.
