Vintage vehicles of all sorts tell the transportation story through carriages, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, engines and aircraft —all still operational. For Arctic enthusiasts, the 1926 Model-T Ford converted into a snowmobile is most intriguing. Donald MacMillan used an identical vehicle and conversion kit in Labrador on his 1927-28 expedition, introducing the first snow machine to the region. The museum’s snowmobile still runs, and events featuring it and the museum’s other vehicles in action are announced on its website. Footage of MacMillan’s snowmobile in operation in Labrador can be found on the web.
