DEVELOP INTEREST

The first step in forming a four wheel drive club is to develop interest. The best place to begin is with yourself and a few friends who are equally interested in four wheel drive vehicles. Excellent possibilities for new members are persons who have an interest that can best be served by four wheel drive. Among these are hunters, fishermen, camera enthusiasts.....
