Default Model T Snowmobile

Went to the Ice Harvest at Kezar Lake in Sutton, NH and then up to Musterfield farm where the ice is stored in an 1890 Circa."ice House" where it is used for use during the summer. The NH chapter guys from the Model T snowmobile club were there giving rides.

So i took a tool in a few of them riding shotgun.

If you can get up to Stowe, Vermont next weekend there will be about 20 of them model t snowmobiles there giving rides.

If you wanted to you can jump right in and they will let you grab a hold of the hand saws and have at it.

Now that is just COOL, I want one! Love all them ole vintage auto's, truck, sleds, motorcycles, race cars, chainsaws, anything with any engine, steam, gas or diesel, and what people adapted them to for other uses, with nothing but ole school ingenuity.
