2009 PA Jeep Show - Fun in the Farmland

We had such a great time at the 2008 show that we couldn't stay away from the 2009 Annual All Breeds Jeep Show in York, Pennsylvania. The 2008 show was the PA Jeeps Club's largest show ever, so we hit the road with high hopes for an even bigger and better show. We were not disappointed; there were an amazing 625 Jeeps and over 5,300 spectators at this two-day event. And, there were 73 vendors all waiting to show the latest and greatest gadgets, gismos, and things you can't live without. Whether you wanted to munch on some goodies from the many food vendors or shop for a cool Jeep T-shirt, the day had something to offer everyone.

This '69 Jeepster is a replica of one of the Jeepsters used during the Vietnam War at the 24th Evacuation Hospital in Long Binh, South Vietnam. Steve Heffner is restoring the Jeepster with his friend who served there from 1969-1971. He has equipped it with stretchers, radios, and period-correct military markings. The Jeepster was used because of the decent ride and the power of the V-6.

One man's junk is another man's treasure, and the swap meet was a little slice of heaven for finding odds and ends for that latest project, that hard-to-find piece, or even a running, driving Jeep. The Recovery Clinic by Ron Allen was a huge crowd pleaser, as was an RTI Ramp and obstacle course. Some ran through the rocks as if they were on a freeway, while others simply ran away on the many bypasses. The log cross, hills, and twists provided a great time for all levels of Jeep and driver. By the end of the show, 96 trophies awarded.
