Happy 10th Anniversary Soviet Steeds! :party:

Hard to believe it's been a decade... Time flies when you're having fun.

We now have over 10,000 registered users, over 600,000 posts in 46,000+ topics.

Plus we have over 3,000 members in the Soviet Steeds Facebook group.

Wow! I never expected this when I started it 10 years ago. Thanks for making this place what it is.
