Today’s article highlights Larson’s 1967 Johnson Skee Horse.

“My favourite ride is the 1967 Johnson Skee Horse 20-inch track with the matching cutter behind,” he said. “It's got electric start and neutral. OMC, which is Johnson, Evinrude and Snow Cruiser—they’re all the same family, they had a good machine back then. They did a good job on their boat engines. They had an upper hand on how to finish things nice.”
