1976 POLARIS TX MOD STOCK III w/PDC HOOD
This Site is Dedicated in Memory of My Father Howard
Dad introduced me to snowmobiling in 1970. We rode together for
and enjoyed the mountains of Washington, Idaho and Montana.
Dad was killed on February 1st, 1983 in West Yellowstone, Montana
when a drunk jackass on a Yamaha SRX crashed into the left side
of my father's 1980 POLARIS INDY 605 that was built as a special order
by Bob Eastman at POLARIS, then modified by Buzz Rodseth.
I still own Howard's first sled that he bought in 1970.
It was a 1971 SKI-DOO TNT 440.
Also, with the help of a good old friend I attained
and own the bored out 3 cylinder engine from his Polaris Indy,
along with the clutch, carbs and pipes. That engine was
the last thing he heard that night in the woods of Yellowstone.
Three things I have learned to share with all.
1. Do not ride with shithead riders that have no skill.
2. Do not drink and ride or ride with drunk jackasses.
3. Where a chest plate and additional protective gear.

My good friend Jerry's First Snowmobile

This is his restored Mustang on display
in Spokane with the commemorative
plaques provided and presented by The
Bob & Karolyn Eastman Trust.
Duplicates of these plaques sit in front
of his three Starfires
now owned by The Eastman Trust
in the Northstar City of Minnesota.
Jim Smith ~ 1973 Polaris
This beautiful restoration has a rare
800cc engine just like the one Bob Eastman
won the World Championship on at Eagle
River in 1973.
Now this sled is parked next to Jerry
Kienbaum's three Starfires & Bob Eastman's Shooting Star
along with several other famed vintage
sleds of snowmobile history in Minnesota.
Thanks Jim for the great restored sled.
