2019, Jun: 2nd Annual ASCOA Scorpion Homecoming & Driving Tour

June 15, 2019 - Highlights from the 2nd Annual ASCOA Scorpion Summer Open House & Driving Tour sponsored by the Antique Snowmobile Club of America. Here, Les Pinz provides a portion of the group with an overview of this particular location's importance. This small garage in Crosby’s Lakeview district is where it all started. It was from here that Glen Gutzman constructed aluminum-based air sleds (having brought production from Donald L. Bergstrom in Eagle Bend, MN) in the late 1950’s. Once joined with Dick and Stub Harrison in 1959, the small company incorporated as Trail-A-Sled, Inc. and began constructing fiberglass-based air sleds from this same garage. The garage still stands today at the NE corner of Vermilion St and Michigan Ave, in Crosby. (GPS: 46.482204, -93.970957) #scorpionsnowmobiles #scorpiondrivingtour #ascoa
