As most of you know there was a 1927 Model T snowmobile found in Labrador and I have offered my assistance in the possible restoration of it, it is a very historical unit. To day I received this E-Mail.

I was given your E-Mail address and strongly
recommended to contact you. My involvement is due to the fact that the site where the snowmobile was found is considered an archaeology site, and as such in this province, any archaeology project
requires a conservator(ME)to assess and provide
recommendations with regards to any artifacts. The (Model T) Snowmobile falls under this regulation now.

I have provided her with some history and hope that it can be restored for its historical background. I believe that this is the first T to be classified to as an archaeology find.

Keep your fingers crossed that it will be restored and at least put on display some where.

Bob

This one.

Hopefully she won't insist that you clean the whole car with a dental pick and soft whisk broom!

Bob,

Sure hope that it can be salvaged and restored. Should be easy: just change the oil, gas and water and you're good to go. After all " it ran when parked". :-) Keep us posted: would be a shame not to save such an historical T.

The tone of the message suggests they would like to provide a lot more than assessments and recommendations. Control and even confiscation are more what these types have in mind. At least these efforts are aimed at preservation. That's good with me. They are concerned more with people looting archaeological sites than with good folks like you bringing history to life. Keep up the good work.
Fordially, Erik
