“I have an old drag that I found here
in the woods near town. It was the first
groomer drag for the Pequot Brush
Pilots Snowmobile Club, which is
another organization I belong to, and I’m
in the process of restoring that,” he said.
Benefits of membership
Guenther says ASCOA performs an im-portant
service by helping members
with valuable tips for restoring antique
and vintage snowmobiles. Members
can also take advantage of classified
ads for people looking to buy and sell
restored vehicles, and they can get help

Guenther notes that ASCOA was

Antique Snowmobile Soci-ety
when it was first formed
by a group of snowmobile
enthusiasts in Green Lake, Wis., in

club since 1990, says the move helped
provide a substantial boost to ASCOA
membership. He notes that there are
other antique and vintage snowmo-bile
organizations around, but they’re
smaller than ASCOA and aren’t as
broad in geographic scope.
“We are an international organiza-tion.
