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.

OK, here are some pics from this morning. Yesterday was sunny and pleasant; what a difference a day makes. I hope I can remember to get some pictures without the snow.

The picture of the Duster in Victoria, IL is a few years old.

There are two kinds of people, those who finish what they start and so on.
