No, not me. Why do we have old military vehicles
anyway? They take up our time to restore, cost us
money, are hard work to get/keep running! We do it
for love of the hobby. It would be easy to walk
away from the MVPA, like an old mil-veh: it is run
down and in need of restoration, and will require
effort to bring it back where it should be. Should
we sell it and buy a new Jeep Cherokee? Most of us
wouldn't dream of trading in our mil-vehs on a new
SUV--we would rather put the effort into making
our old vehicles new again. I plan to stay with
the MVPA, elect better officers, send in my input
on how the bylaws and organization should be
changed for the better, display my mil-veh with
the MVPA sticker, and try to grow and strengthen
our hobby. It isn't the easiest or most pleasant
direction to take, but I think it will be better
in the long run.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
