More Hints on the Vintage Sled Find of the Year for 2008

We all wish you the best for 2009. On the way out of 2008, we will soon have our new "Find of the year". Not any kind of real contest per say, but a yearly running chronicle of the really neat sleds that have been found in the past year. We do have some judges and prizes.

Find of the yearHowever we strongly encourage bribing the judges – (tongue firmly planted in cheek). This years winner will get a spiffy trophy, and this brand new helmet, courtesy of Koch’s Performance of Crivitz Wisconsin.

This years judges go by their SledTalk 24/7 names: Polaris 440, Lasergal, Yamabunch and JLOPower. Each is eagerly anticipating each email and phone call to see what new goodies are being offered. So if you have a sled entered, start the bribing, bribe early and bribe often!

The judges are going to have a very, very tough time. This year some really fascinating new stuff showed up. It’s amazing to me how much stuff is out there:
