Bogged Down?

Back in the big freeze of 1963 Innes Ireland imported a VW engined Swedish Snow-Trac, which he proceeded to use taking supplies to remote farms in the Scottish borders. Ireland was so impressed - he called it the world's greatest sporting machine, despite it having a top speed of only 16mph - that he became the vehicle's UK agent. The picture shows Innes demonstrating the Snow-Trac to an American journalist.

Oh!!!! how it's great!!! to see a snow trac image. It looks like a combination of a jeep and an battle tank. It was really a big help to farmers for it was formerly used in farms. Hope to drive it actually and operate for farm production.
