About Stamp

The third set of Historic Land Vehicles stamps - to be issued once again in a souvenir sheet format - depicts farm and frontier vehicles, including three used on farms and three used in off-road conditions. With his sprocket wheel/track system and winter vehicle experience, Bombardier produced his first light-weight snowmobile in 1959. Mass production capabilities put the firm far ahead of competitors and the name Ski-Doo became synonymous with the term snowmobile all over the world. The extent of the snowmobile boom between 1962 and 1973 changed winter sport forever. In 1964, the year of Bombardier's death, the Ski-Doo Olympique line was launched. The stylized design took advantage of the increased speed and performance offered by the Austrian made Rotax engine. When the line was discontinued in 1979, over 265,000 units had been sold.
