    That is not by chance. There was the same man involved. According to this, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logan_Machine_Company , Logan Manufacturing Company was previously named DeLorean Manufacturing Company.
    Always a filled fuel tank.

    Very cool pics, thanks for sharing these. How random that your friend has this. Does he actually use it or what's the backstory on how he ended up with it?

    He cross country skis and sometimes competes in CC races or duathalons. He owns quite a bit of land (a farm) and wanted to make and groom his own trails. He cut a bunch of trails through the woods. He saw this groomer for sale for cheap with attachments so he bought it. We were at a running event one day and he told me he bought a Delorean. I thought he meant a car like mine but turned out it was this machine. Pretty funny.
    As it turned out it needs a lot of work (it does run and work though) and it is way too wide for his trails especially when trying to turn in the woods. So he hasn't used it much.

    We have talked about doing a full restoration on it. It is all pretty generic stuff for the most part, kind of like restoring a tractor. But then what do you do with a mint old restored snow groomer?? It's not like we would be taking it to car shows or something.

    So true, but would be a cool restoration job for sure. If he does end up parting with it please hit me up. Would be awesome to get one of the pieces of signage near that gear shifter.
