Glad they could retrieve it.
Someone should send them a langs /snyders /mac's /clastique vendors list and catalogs
P.S. Get them on this forum
I think Bob McDonald is assisting with this project inn some regard. He has posted this info a couple of times.
What a great story! I must have missed Bob's posts on this.
Someone from the Vintage Ford should contact them and ask if they could keep a pictorial record of the restoration process.
Even better yet the MTFCA club itself should offer any advice that might be helpful.
The thing that gets me about these finds by archeologist is how they think it is the greatest thing in the world and they discovered something great and rare. I am glad they show interest in them and are saving them. But I thought archeology was for things like King Tut's tomb, A pioneer village in the 13 colonies, ect.... Do not get me wrong I appreciate their effort, but something being considered an archeology discovery that my Dad or Granddad drove really makes me feel old . That makes me think (dangerous) is my rust bucket 1926 early non starter car that I just rescued,an archeological discovery.??,
I am in contact with them and the Canadian Gov. that is the owner of this find. They have decided to restore it as an Archaeological Artifact. I'm trying to find out if there High school or Collage system in the town where it is (Nain Labrador) can or will assist with this project for educational and historical reasons.
There are many pictures and Movies that were made
during its operation in the day, but there held by a museum and university in Maine and there real tight on there possessions, I've already inquired
with a negative answer.I will contact them shortly
to see if I can get them started on it, starting with the running gear. I have already told them I'll donate them some of the missing Snowmobile Parts (skies components)
I they have ask me to advise them an the restoration and I will for the Snowmobile part but would like to call on the forum for the car part of it. All help and any donation of small parts(When & if needed) will regretfully be excepted.
More information will be forth coming as the project gets started.
Contact me here or by PM with any questions.
