For many years people have loaded up their show Jeeps, beater Jeeps, clean Jeeps, and dirty Jeeps and headed for York, Pennsylvania. Some attendees traveled hundreds of miles to the event so many have viewed as a "must see". Some hoping to bring home a trophy while others are out to show off just how many dents, crushed fenders, broken windows, and ample-used skid plates they have earned. For whatever the reason, they all had a common goal and that was to have a great time. Summer 2008 was no exception, and July 19 & 20 proved the 13th Annual All Breeds Jeep Show is still a Jeeping good time.
By 7 a.m. Saturday morning the line of Jeeps was already starting to form. Everyone was anxious to start their busy day of checking out all the Jeeps, getting new ideas, playing on the obstacle course and RTI ramp as well as shopping with the vendors and picking up some good finds at the swap meet. This year there were 520 registered Jeeps and 4,625 spectators.
If you are curious what the biggest Northeast Jeep show looks like or you are trying to decide whether or not make the trek out to attend, here is a glimpse of the many Jeeps and activities that we got to enjoy. For information on the 2009 Pennsylvania All Breeds Jeep Show go to pajeeps.org.
