Smithsonian Article on the Zamboni Company

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

I suppose the timing of this article is appropriate, given those of us in the north half of the blue ball are plunging into winter quickly (at least the weather in Washington State feels wintery), as a recent Smithsonian Magazine article on the Zamboni Company featured several photos I hadn’t seen of Jeep-based Zamboni vehicles. Here’s the article: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/innovation/how-zamboni-changed-game-ice-rinks-180973352/

The article also included this ad featuring the CJ-3B as Model D from the Zamboni Company’s archives:

If you are not familiar with the use of jeeps as early Zambonis, check out my post about the various jeep models that were used for which Zamboni machines. The CJ-3B Page also has background information about the Zamboni Ice Resurfacers.

If you really like pics of Zamboni machines, check out the Zamboni: The Coolest Machines on Ice.
