About has been created by Trevor Larkum of Armour Archive to provide information on preserved tanks around the world. It was initially built using the content from existing Armour Archive publications, including Preserved German Tanks 1: A7V to Panzer IV, Preserved German Tanks 2: Panzer V Panther to Leopard 2, Preserved Tanks in France, Preserved Tanks in Russia, and so on (these publications are available as paperback books from Armour Archive).

The first books to be put online were Preserved German Tanks Volumes 1 and 2 (see the links at the top). Then the first chapters of Preserved Tanks in Russia (covering the Kubinka and Moscow collections) and Preserved Tanks in France (covering Normandy and the Saumur armour museum) were added.

The site went online 8 June 2008. Since then a large number of tanks and collections have been added covering many countries of the world, including UK, USA, Canada, Netherlands, Brazil, Italy, and so on. This work is planned to continue until all preserved tanks (i.e. those no longer in military service) have been recorded.

Preserved Tanks in USA - Philadelphia   
I'm currently on a trip through the north east USA (and later on into Canada). The tank hunting has had mixed results so far - starting well in Philadelphia, but not going so well in New York.
I tracked down an M42 Duster in Easton, PA and an M60 in Bath PA.M42
The bad news is that I visited the USS Intrepid museum in Manhatten to see their Patton and T72 only to find the museum closed for refurbishment (with the Intrepid gone) and to learn it's not due to reopen until November.
