We want people who really know their snowmobiles lo get a good long look at Ski-Doo 72 before snow comes. You see, the longer you look at Ski-Doo "72, the more good reasons you find lor buying it. Good reasons like the Rolax nngme that's designed specifically winter, so it starts even at 40 below. Keeps on going thanks TO a neat-dissipating alu- minium alloy block, aluminium pistons and special cooling fins. Keeps going strong thanks lo a balanced governor, clutch and drive assembly that give you the right torque at any speed. Then there's steering. Elficient steering that' carves tight turns. Ball joint steering for less play. Choice of bogies or track-flattening slide suspension and a super-lough cab. These are jusr a few of Ihe many, many reasons why Ski-Doo '72 has more going for you. And this is the season when dealer has plenty of time to giveiyou all the cold hard facts. The season when the pros choose their snowmobiles. See them now! I.M.
