The Antique Snowmobile Club of America (ASCOA) held its annual summer meeting this past July in Hutchinson, Minnesota, and once again one of the key activities beyond taking care of business, displaying old sleds, and talking shop, was the restoration of a future raffle sled. This time the chosen sled was a 1969 Allied Rustler, a quirky and very unique looking sled to say the least. Utilized as a source of funding, each year the club selects a sled to restore at the previous summer meeting. The sled is disassembled and then carted away by various members, each of whom are tasked with restoring, repairing, and/or cleaning up the components in their possession. When they reconvene a year a later, the rewarding task of putting it all back together ensues. With many hands and just as many opinions, the sled is completed over an afternoon of hard work and comradery. The crew at OSM stopped by this summer to snap a few pics of the gathering and the progression of the Rustler. If old sleds are your thing then you owe it to yourself to join ASCOA. Annual dues are just $20 and as part of your membership you’ll receive 6 issues of their Iron Dog Tracks publication. To learn more and join, visit them online at www.ascoa.org.
