1980 John Deere Liquifire

What was your intended objective when you started the build?

To see if the Deere’s ran like they did in the old days.

What motivated you to start your project?

My dad (Jeff Schmidt) oval raced John Deere’s in the 70’s and 80’s. He and my uncle (his brother) went to Eagle River, WI to watch the vintage oval races in 2008. When he came back the three of us started building an ‘80 Liquifire a ‘80 Sportfire. The rest is history

What was the most unique and creative thing you did to the sled?

Internal mods in the motor.

What are you most proud of?

How pretty the sled is. It has retained its beauty over the last 10 years of racing. The pictures uploaded were taken December of this year (2019).

What do other people say about your sled?

“That is by far the prettiest snowmobile ever made.”
