Well… even with winter over, things are moving really fast in the world of vintage snowmobiles and here at vintagesleds.com.
First of all, thanks to all of you who pre-ordered “It Ain’t Easy” and thanks for your patience. We ran into some snags with the discs that we hope to have it all sorted out and get them shipped in 5-10 days at the most.
Next, I’m getting really close to finished a sled that I’ve wanted to see restored since I first laid eyes on it over 7 years ago – Don Omdahl’s 74 SnoPro. It will be unveiled at the Classic Sled Roundup on May 25th. There will also more surprises at that show, so stay tuned for that.
Race dates for next year are already starting to take shape. I’ve started a Bull Sessions thread to try and help everyone get the 2009 race dates organized and published. I understand some revisions to the rules are due out very soon as well.
Here’s some more press on “It Ain’t Easy” from way back in the day. This one sent in from the Bull Sessions JLOPower. It’s from the Feb/March 1973 issue of “Invitation to Snowmobiling” and has some really interesting background on the Thief River Falls premiere of the movie. My favorite line in this article is “It hits on all that is modern in Minnesota: alienation, drugs, snowmobiles. It’s almost painfully and Easy Rider of the snow. It’s also good. Damn good in spots.”
