Those old blizzards look so cool I want one 😂 

Wonder if it’s the 7500 or 9500

It was a 1978 6500 (340).  In 1979 it was a 7500.

or 6500 I honestly don’t know enough about them to tell the difference. I just think that’s one of the best looking sleds of the 70s

 

edit…well apparently Doug posted at the exact same time and now know the answer 👍

A little story on the old Trail A Sled.

The big wigs from Scorpion got word of the sled my dad had and he ended up getting a free Scorpion Mach 1 sled for from them.( which was the biggest POS that my dad ever owned)

We got a tour of the factory in Crosby Mn. and got the sled right off the assembly line.

There was an article from Snow Goer magazine  and I'm in one of the pictures.

I was around 8 or 9 years old at the time.

The last I heard is that the sled is in the Crosby fire museum but that was many years ago.

My dad told me that if I could start it (8 HP Kholer) I could drive it. He didn't realized that I was determined to drive it.

It didn't take me long to figure out how to start it.

Back then, I thought I was king shit and rode the crap out of that sled.

That picture is of my two sisters and me up at our cabin north of Duluth Mn.

I'm in the middle.

Neat story. 

Was at a swap meet last year and a guy took a 1972 Scorpion and put a Indy 600 motor in it.  Did a really nice job on it.  Said you had to wear ear plugs even inside the helmet because the intake was so loud or it would give you a headache.
