IMPS - is a society of enthusiasts dedicated to the preservation and restoration of military vehicles from all periods, but mainly from World War 1 to the present day, regardless of the nation which produced or used them.
The aim of its members is to return historic vehicles to as near as possible their original condition and many of the vehicles owned are the only surviving examples.
The club takes part in many rallies and commemorative events each year and you can find out more at www.imps.org.uk
Name any decade since 1916 and you can be sure that someone, somewhere has either restored or is in the process of restoring an AFV from that period - from motorcycles to Main Battle Tanks. The only limits being the enthusiasm, ambition and bank balance of the restorer.
It's worthy work. Thanks to the efforts of the restoration community, many vehicles would simply have disappeared, the only proof that they ever existed lying in faded photographs, scrap yards and rusting away on firing ranges.
In the UK alone there are more than 5,000 vehicles either fully restored or in process of restoration and their owners generously bring them to public shows, reunions and memorials.
In these pages, we will be featuring as many as we can on video, screening interviews with the restorers themselves and - where possible - shots of their vehicles in action. We're adding new content all the time.
