Facts prove it Better overall We want you to look at Ski-Doo early this year for a very good reason. We want people who really know their snowmobiles to get a good long look at Ski-Doo 72 before snow comes. You see, (he longer you look at Ski-Doo 72, the more good reasons you find for btiying it. Good reasons like the Rotax engine that's designed specifically for winter, so it starls even at 40 below. Keeps on going thanks to a heat-dissipating alu- minium alloy block, aluminium pistons and special cooling tins. Keeps going strong thanks to a balanced governor, clutch and drive assembly that give you the right torque at any speed. Then there's steering. Efficient steering that carves light turns. Ball joint steering for less play. Choice of bogies or track-flattening slide suspension and a super-tough cab. These are just a few of the many, many reasons why Ski-Doo 72 has more going for you. And this is the season when your Ski-Doo dealer has plenty of lime to giveyou all the cold hard (acts. The season when the pros choose their snowmobiles. See them now! T.M.
