ROPKEY ARMOR MUSUEM, CRAWFORDVILLE, IN PAGE 1
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

If you have any shots of Fred Ropkeys 'Ontos' that you might be able to email me or post here, I would really like to add it to my collection of 'where are they now' photos.

I hope to actually make it up there in the near furture. I am intrigued at his Ontos. Until recently, I wasn't aware that he had it, and that it is operational. He doesn't have the turret mounted, from what I have been told.

Don
