Default Snow Bird track conversion for cars!?!

I stumbled across this on eBay, and at $35 it is more than I am willing to pay, but if one of you buys this, I'd love to post a scan of it on the ForumsForums! It says the brochure is 8 pages, but you can only see 4 in this image, and unfortunately can't read much of it.

ORIGINAL & VERY RARE - 1940 ARPS Corporation Super SNOW BIRD Snow Traveling Equipment Brochure for Model A & V8 Standard Ford Cars. Sales brochure is presented by ARPS Corp. of New Holstein, Wisconsin...who were in business manufacturing the Snow Bird Snow Flyer (track system) from 1925 thru 1940. This piece was likely one of their LAST advertising brochures! It's nicely illustrated throughout, showing the very unique snow tracks on FORD cars, although Snow Bird equipment could be used on all cars. It also pictures & describes various special features of the Super Snow Bird Track System for vehicle snow travel & details simple installation. Stapled catalog measures 8 1/4" X 10 3/4" & has 8 pages, including covers. EXCELLENT CONDITION, super clean & crisp with NO ripped or torn pages. You'll be delighted with this significant item of antique snowmobile and/or snow equipment history!

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion:
the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage
of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
