Borden's M1917 restored.
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.

That's the one at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. Not the Borden M1917.

That's a really great restoration, thanks for letting us know. Here is another pic found on http://www.canadiansoldiers.com/vehicles/tanks/m1917.htm with a bit of the story of the tank :

"[This] example was located in Alberta being used as a log skidder and purchased by the Canadian War Museum in 1997. Restoration work began in 2008 with financial support provided by private donor Richard Iorweth Thorman and additional funds allocated by the charitable organization Friends of the Canadian War Museum. The vehicle was in poor shape; the upper hull and turret had been removed and discarded. M1917 tracks and running gear salvaged from the Kingston, Ontario rifle ranges were mated with the surviving hull, and turret and remaining hull pieces were fabricated in Ottawa by DEW Engineering."
