Antique Snowmobiles Come Out of Retirement

Let it snow! Late summer Iowa show featured snowmobile display

1941 Eliason Snow Toboggan
This 1941 Eliason Snow Toboggan, from the collection of Russell Willis, Hopedale, Ill., is an unrestored original, totally complete. A collector since 1987, Russell is a snowmobile veteran. “My two boys collect with me, and we collect anything to do with snowmobiles,” he says. “It’s mostly a winter thing, but there are shows and swap meets all year.”
