I had a fantastic time at the A-1 show in New Lothrop Michigan last weekend. My thanks to host and all-around fabulous lady Dianne Miller, and the party of crazies I drove up to the show with. They kept me laughing so hard I almost split a gut on the way there.
Here’s just a few videos and shots from the show. First up is T.J. Henriken riding his 1969 Hornet around on the wheel kit. Very cool.
Next is Greg Spaulding explaining one of six ever built 1976 Rotax prototype SnoPro motors. Greg was one of the original mechanics at the time, so he knew all about the motor in great detail. Greg also runs Spauldings Vintage Snowmobile, a great resource for re-pop parts.
Last, but certainly not least is some fantastic, sunny day photos of the Boss Cat III, newly restored by the Warning family. The restoration made it’s debut at the A-1 show.
9 Year old Garret Rimko of Sharpsville, PA quickly became one of everyone’s favorites with his extensive enthusiasm for old sleds.
Dave and his new racing ride for 2010: Clark Motorsports replica of the very successful 1980 Steve Thorsen Cat SnoPros.
Friday night we were greeted by this amazing display from Team Highland, one of Michigan’s biggest and baddest enduro race teams.
