I picked up this sled for $3 at a garage sale.

Its first owner was a boy named Tim and its from Christmas of 1953.

I fixed it up with a bit of hammering - gentle persuasion like my daddy taught me:) and some wax on the rails.
It ran though the snow like butter :)
Can you tell we are on an icy sidewalk?
