Bombardier blurb for an article, is this accurate?
« on: December 23, 2019, 07:46:47 pm »
I have compiled a brief history blurb on the Bombardier snow bus from what I could gather through google. Is this accurate? Feel free to suggest better wording if I am not accurate.

Thank you in advance!

The seven-seat model B7 was invented by Joseph-Armand Bombardier in 1936 following the death of his young son due to illness because he couldn’t reach a hospital during a winter blizzard. Initially made with a wood body and steel frame, these machines featured a distinctive rounded body and were equipped with front skis and rear tractor treads. Subsequent models included a 12-seat configuration in 1942 (models B12, C12 and R12), increase to the 18-seat capacity models (C18, R18 with front wheels instead of skis) in 1947 and the change from wood to steel body shortly afterwards. The Bombardier snow bus was produced until 1981.
