Its been a while since I last wrote. Not to say I have not been busy with toys and marrying off my daughter. WOW! both my kids are married and gone. Officially off the parental payroll. lolo Yes, I know, im delusional. One can dream.
Oh well. I went to a farm auction a few weeks back and bought a couple of things. The first was a car that violates my number one rule. No fakes, reproductions, hand made or plastic/glass cars. With that said, I could not resist this hand made cord coupe. Its a tad to small for a pedal car but is about the same size. It needs total restoration. The main reason I bought it was it had a roof. It is a full coupe. It is pretty close to the lines of the real car. It will cost me a mint to restore it but once done it will be outstanding.
The star of the show is the snowmobile I purchased. This is not any snowmobile, it is the tiniest factory made sled I have ever seen. It is the size of a kids wagon or pedal car. It has a motor and everything the big ones have. There is nothing on the books about this little gem. It is obviously a ski doo. From the design and detial it apears to be a 67 or 68. It is a total basket case, but it is sooooo rare and so unique I don’t mind speding the bucks to bring it back.
I thought Artic Cat was the only one who made childs snowmobiles.
kitty cat”. That was in the 80’s I think. I guess ski doo made a few as well. My best guess is that it was made along with a few others for show room floors, or give aways like the pedal cars were in the 20’s and 30’s.
If anyone has any info on this little beast PLEASE let me know. I will keep you all updated on the restoration.
