Do you show? Swap? Race? I have showed a few times but mine are mainly riders. I used to be at all the swaps within a reasonable distance, but have slacked off a little lately. Still hit as many as I can. I raced ovals lemans and enduros all through the 70's. Stock and modified. (Schmoldt Arctic Racing, Ormsby, Mn.)

Favorite vintage snowmobile event: Princeton, Waconia, Any vintage racing, especially ovals, and all the local vintage rides! They have all been great!
How long have you been into vintage snowmobiles? Since they were new - 1969

When did you first get bit by the vintage bug? Whenever they started considering the 69-70 models vintage as I was in the snowmobile business and fixing and riding them the whole time. I guess the vintage snuck up on me.

Other hobbies: Fishing is my other biggest hobby. Used to hunt a lot but not much lately, also enjoy gardening and collecting old pop bottles and openers
Random fact about you: I am semi-retired, but still own and operate Darryl's Motorsports in Ormsby, Mn. (snowmobile salvage, sales & service) selling new, used & NOS parts, used, restorable and parts sleds, new ATV & motorcycle parts, bait & tackle. WE were an Arctic Cat dealer in this same location in the early 70's and have been in the snowmobile business ever since. Recently retired from autobody repair which I also did most of my life. I am also a member of the Ormsby Volunteer Fire Department. Have been on for 46 years.
