CASPER, Wyo. — One of the snowmobiles looks a little like a 1970s space-pod with tracks.
A rider sits inside, like a car, and the roof is convertible. The power comes from one, big wide track.
Another machine was made to convert a motorcycle to a snowmobile. You read that right. The wheels come off and the frame attaches with a single bar to the tracks.
“I bought it from a guy in the Pedro Mountains,” said Casper snowmobile collector Scott Custer. “When I first found it, I didn’t know what it was.”
