The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Agree. At the very least, they are not M151's.

I didn't recall that area out there being paved. Was that taken up and seeded or is it still there?

The deuce n half by the M48 is from the M211-M135 series GMC or Jimmy's as we called them in Canada. You can tell by the rounded slant hood.

I chopped the original 'Photo 2' up so ID is a little easier.

The paved area is the parking lot, which is still there.

Sheridan and M60A1E2 or M60A2 prototypes or early versions, along with a V100 next to Waybur Theater. They don't get a lot of that kind of traffic.
Do we have a date on this?

No date indication on any of the digital images. I figure the vehicles might give some idea.

Photo 1 is definitely early 60's

Photo 2 late 60's early 70'sa ??

My best guess. I assume its some sort of Armed Forces Day or something like that.
