Thanks Dontos!!
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.

Yesterday, Mrs VB and I had a fantastic 'backstage' tour of the Richardson Motor Pool, the LST Building, various static AFVs as well as an up close and personal visit with Cobra King - all thanks to the generosity and enthusiasm of Don "Dontos" Moriarty!!

Thanks Don!!

It was fascinating to hear about the forensic process of examining and restoring Cobra King and really amazing to see the artifacts themselves.

We had a blast seeing and photographing the AFV's in and around the motor pool, getting the skinny on where they came from and just having the chance to see stuff in the collection that most people never get to see.

It was GREAT!!

I am humbled.....

Y'all are way too kind. I'm glad to have had the chance to show off 'our' toys.

(Okay, so they are only 'ours' until they leave,....)

Regards
Don

As in the parting scene in the old 'Beverly Hillbillies' TV Show.....

"Y'ALL COME BACK NOW, YA'HEAR...."
