Over the years, I’ve amassed a substantial collection of printed Arctic Cat Marketing, Media and Racing materials that have been sitting dormant in a variety of safekeeping spots. I didn’t really have a plan for them until this spring when I had started sifting through some of the totes and realizing, Arctic Cat fans deserve to see some of these things, and ArcticInsider is the perfect outlet.
After attending the 60th Arctic Cat Homecoming event in Thief River Falls this summer, I took in all the snowmobiles, parts, garments and accessories and historic marketing materials on display and this confirmed the thoughts I had about my collection – ArcticInsider followers need to see this history.
ARCTIC CAT LEGACY has been a few months in the making, but the new website plug-ins I’ve invested in will finally help display my personal collection, as well as printed materials and photos I have access to from other collectors.
The entire collection won’t be added overnight, but it is my intent to share bits, pieces and portions of it here weekly as a source for your entertainment. The content itself dates back to the 1960s and will be viewable by YEARS in the categories: MARKETING (Brochures, Ads, Posters, Media Kits, Product Photos), MEDIA (PRIDE and RIDE enthusiast publications, Arctic Circle newsletters and a variety of national snowmobile publications) and RACING (Autograph posters, Team Arctic Factory photos).
I hope you enjoy seeing/reading some of this content as much as I do. When viewing it, if you have information that is more accurate (Years/Dates) or more to add to the story than I have listed, please share that in the comments sections and Ill update it. – Kale
excellent! i look forward to seeing the updates!
Awesome! Can’t wait to see all the legacy content, but especially the 80s onward.
Great idea Kale. For some of us old timers, this brings back memories. Can’t wait to see more!
In the t-train and Kirk pic I think Kirks wife is on the tower in the back round I think she is the one clapping.
You are correct. That is Teresa Hibbert. I have a version of that poster signed by all three of them! 🙂
