November 27, 2018 -- Model "A" Snow Machine
Found this old snow-runner sitting neglected on a vacant lot in Silverton, Colorado. The battery doesn't look too old, so perhaps it hasn't been too long since it last ran.

Hi Frank, Great Find.
It makes for a somewhat historic "Roadside Attraction!"
My "Daily Dose of 1-A-Day 2018" gallery is here:
I've sure never seen a contraption like this! It might get someone out of a jam in a snowstorm.
What a wonderful find! It is an genius creation. I hope it does still run. Great shot too!
Excellent find and super shot. Most unusual vehicle, looks like it could use a little work.
Greta find and shot
Wow, very cool and great shot of a precursor of the snowmobile!
That is one amazing hybrid one-off vehicle. Built for maximum traction in the rear, and minimum traction in front. Very ingenious. Maybe it's really meant for traveling over sand dunes, hence the open seating.
I would venture to say that this is someone's backyard project. Newer battery is a good sign that it runs. Hate to try and hand crank it on a cold morning though... ;^)
