This year’s Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival, held in Butler, PA from June 14th-16th was a great event to attend… So many things to see and not enough time! For those of you who heard about the event and stopped by to visit, it was a real pleasure to spend time meeting with you and learning more about your restoration projects! We had some great comments from all of you and hope to see you at the next event! Here is a look at the Kaiser Willys “bungalow” and a few of the things we experienced over the weekend.
The WWII encampment was wonderfully set up with all of the military Jeeps, period antiques and uniforms… Not to mention the great guys and members of the MVPA who spent so much time transforming their vehicles into living timepieces! The second morning of the event we even got a swing dance lesson from one of the reenactors!
Not far from the Kaiser Willys tent was a covered building that housed the Jeep History museum, displaying many fantastic vehicles to see starting with a Bantam Jeep and spanning the decades up and all the way through to present Jeeps.
It really was mind-boggling to see so many Jeeps (around 1500) lined up for the the Jeep Invasion, located in downtown Butler, PA. It took around two hours to walk through the streets to try to see everything and I’m pretty sure we still didn’t see all of them!
