bang your head AARRGGHH!!! I didn't get a chance to see much this year. I had some things come up last minute and I had no time. I only drove through it at about 3pm on Sunday after everyone was leaving. (I did see some cools sleds though.... Like a near MINT looking 84' El Tigre' 6000). Can someone give an update on how this years Waconia Vintage show went?

I attended the show on Saturday with a couple of buddy's. BRRR...it was damn cold there. Wind made it feel like was -20 F.

We went thru the swap meet....warmed up in the ballroom and finished at the radar run. My friend attended last year's show and his comment was this year's show was much better...the quality of the sleds at this years show was very good. Arctic Cat was this year's featured vendor

My friend bought a couple of carbs for his '71 EXT....$10 U.S. each at the swap meet. Lot's of vintage part's and sleds for sale.

The ballroom has some rare vintage Arctic Cat sleds in a area that was roped off. Saw a 1980 Sno Pro (Eagle River) racer, 1970 760 Puma with Montana Pipes, another Sno Pro racer with wing the back of it (not sure what year it was) and a few others.

The radar run was fun to watch....saw a 800 King Kat make a pass on the ice. That sled was blast to hear. It had the 3 cylinder motor. Would have been nice to hear the speeds but the organizer's did not have a loud speaker system.

I took some pic's....will try to post them later.
