No, a friend of my Uncle gave him a couple of flyers to upload.  He gave me some other brochures too, all off the beaten path stuff.

They must've had an optional gen set on it somewhere.

 

How long has your friend had his?  Any idea the year?

Pretty cool rig. They sure liked to make the options rhyme.

Reminds me of the snowmobile market back then. There where about 250 brands out there

and everyone was doing something different, and it was the best.

I just uploaded another brochure with the name PUG, but this one was from 1996... I wonder if it was a resurrection attempt or ???

Pretty versatile machine. That was back in the day when small companies could produce a product like that and join a growing market. Will it seems to me there was a brand of snowmobile called the Ski whiz back then. I wonder who made them? :wave:

Landpride acquired the rights to the Pug and produced the Gondo 4x4 in 2005 and 2006. I was a Landpride dealer then and it was a cool machine. Very pricey though.

His is from the 90's. It has a Vanguard in it I think.

Yes, they tried to give almost every option out there. I like the pop up tent

option. But they missed fishing rod holders, and down riggers.

 

 

Brian, I don't know who made them, or if MF actually did it themselves.

I resto'd this one 3 years ago. I didn't start it last year, so I better soon.
