Shriners in the early 1970s didn’t just pack themselves into clown cars — they also rode patriotically decorated Polarises. Judging by the hats, this image is of the Roseau unit of the Kem Shriners, which is from Grand Forks, N.D. The Kem Shriners still have a snowmobile group called the SnowNobles. Look for them in parades in Northwestern Minnesota this summer.
