Not sure I'd want to be seen with most of the others you posted but I like the 3 VW homebuilt cats.

The VW pick up is my favorite!


The Ford "PP&L" Bronco with the tracks is not bad either.

What do you know about the 3rd one with the red stamped steel wheels? Back in the 80's the was a machine very similar to this on display at the Winter Park ski area. It was in poor condition, built on a 4-wheel drive chassis. Thought it was pretty neat then and still do.

hmmmmm, interesting once you start looking at it, first I do not know where it is and or who owns it,

it has a Model A Ford engine and transmission, 4 lug wheels are a bit different, they kinda look like wheels from the mid to late 1930's, a very common design, through all of them, for the most part, were 5 lug

seems the owner has built new tracks and has it in runnable condition,

I think it looks like many preproduction/home made snow cats build in the 30's, 40's and 50's...

all-n-all fun machine

We passed a Snobear on our way back from a Motherís Day hike.

It looks like it would be good on a packed trail or frozen lake. Self propelled ice shanty!
