Those old ads are pretty neat.

A couple years ago my co-worker found an old newspaper stuffed in the wall of our sewer plant. It is from 1978 and has a skidoo ad on the back. Prices are pretty close to yours. I'll have to take a picture and add it to your thread next week.

I (my Dad) had a Sno-prince and Northway when i was a youngin.


I was too young to play with the prince, but i rode on the back
plenty. I drove the northway, it wasnt too bad back then.

I bartered 3 red fox pelts for a used Ski doo snowmobile from my uncle around 1974. He sold the furs for $125 as I recall.
I couldn't buy a head beam on my Ford Dually for 600 Texas coyotes.

My dad bought us the Mercury at that time. Heavy worthless beast. It did have reverse as if that made it better.
