A Historic Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas All !!!!!

For those of us with grey hair (or no hair in my case) and remembering the days of old... merry Christmas for those things we used to only dream about.

For me my first was a 8 hp SkiDoo from Henri Berard, Berards Ski Doo and Shell Station in St. Pierre,

Our first snowmobile was a 1970 moto- ski Capri. I remember $750:00 on the windshield. My how times have changed.

in 1969 SKi Doo sold in the day for $695...... today the same '69 sled, used, abused and probably not running sells for about the same.

In what other power sport can you buy it new... drive it for decades till its broken... then sell for about what you paid for it???? heck... doesn't this mean our sleds are basically free in the long run ?? which is what I am telling the wife (haha)
