Gimli Machine

Here's another picture I took, posted in lieu of writing.

I took this in the spring while I was in Gimli, MB. I noticed it while driving around, and I don't know the owner. Do you know what it is?

I didn't know either, but I was with someone old enough to recognize it. It's a very early Bombardier snowmobile. Bombardier made his B7 in 1937. I thought I remembered reading "1938" on this machine, but the historic website claims the wheels had spokes until 1940.

If anyone knows more about it, please post something in comments. Someone should really go offer to buy it from the guy and put it in a museum or something.
