I recently received an email from a friend of Tom Remington’s, David Crews, with this challenge:
“I am declaring that I have the very best set of vintage snowmobile photos that there is.”
I have to say, I’ve seen the photos and they are pretty damn good. As proof, David offered a couple of samples for me to post here with his challlenge.
There are some very good shots in the album on David’s blog, which he hosts on his website and describes as something “…like a digital coffee table book. The book is about an 18 year old Rock n’ Roll kid from the Dundalk suburbs of Baltimore City who moves to Maine in 1968 and fits right in. He became a bear hunting guide and country girl’s delight. It is my true story.” (I wonder if we should challenge the assertion that he was in fact a ‘country girl’s delight’–maybe Tom or an old girlfriend could come out of the woodwork and support this claim! 🙂 )
On his blog, you’ll see David’s original declaration:
“I am issuing this statement: I have the best set of vintage snowmobile photographs in the world.
If anyone can come up with a better set, I’d like to see ‘um.”
Incidentally, his sister doesn’t believe David could possibly have the best set of vintage snowmobile pictures in the world, so he’ll need your help to prove her wrong–or to dethrone him and claim the title of ‘King of the Vintage Sled Mountain’ for yourself.
Now, to view all of David’s vintage snowmobile photos, you have to go to his blog. You can access the main page here: David Crews Website & Blog. Once you are there, click on the blog link in the center of the page (Read David Crews Blog), or go directly to the photo album (View the Photo Album of David Robert Crews) and scan through to see all of the vintage sled pics there. The black and whites, as David will tell you, are of particularly good quality and there are some great action shots.
So there you have it, the VINTAGE SLED PIC CHALLENGE. Think your collection is better than David’s? Know your pictures suck but want us to see them anyway?
Send Me Your Vintage Snowmobile Pictures
I’ll link to or post them and we can let my readers decide. (And don’t be afraid of David, it’s all in good fun.)
Join in the fun! Send your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org I’m looking forward to seeing them!
…and don’t forget…if you have information to support or deny that David Robert Crews was in fact a “Country girl’s delight” during the period of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, please don’t be shy! We want to hear all about that too (you can even do a guest post if you like).
