Car collector turns his attention to vintage snowmobiles

Gordon Kimball preserves some of the earliest of winter machines


Gordon Kimball was restoring vintage automobiles in Idaho Falls but happened one winter to be visiting West Yellowstone, Wyoming, where he met a couple of men riding vintage snowmobiles.

As Bob Welti reports on the At Your Leisure television segment, Kimball then started collecting and restoring very early snow machines, to the point of having more than 85 of them completed and ready to ride again.
