I chose the Ski-doo Blizzard, but I like their counterpart better, The Moto-ski Sonic. Same sled, but the orange and blue is just so beautiful. I plan on finding a Sonic this spring, and restoring it, man I can't wait!

In my garage sets a '73 eltigre' 400 and a '76 eltigre 5000 In there prospective years they were the winners of the race that is now the I-500! (the models not the actual sleds) If youv'e never rode one of these you don't know what you are missing!
