Come ride the Scorpion ’70 Snowmobile

Scorpion 70 Snowmobile

Reading through 1970’s editions of Popular Mechanic magazine, I’ve been surprised by the number of adverts for snowmobiles to be found. In one issue alone there were four different ads, one a two-page spread, and that isn’t counting the adverts for other snow-based antics like Skiing!

Sadly, I’ve never been in the market for a snow vehicle of any sort, but I think if I did need something, I’d quite like a Scorpion ’70. I’m definitely ready to light the fuse for those fireworks!
