Show Basics:

  • Cost: Free.  Entry and attendance are free. Donations are happily accepted and go towards show expenses and Union Mills Homestead.  Over the years we have donated over $10,000.00 to Union Mills Homestead.
  • All civilian Willys and Kaiser products are welcome.  No newer jeeps in the judged areas.
  • Stock AMC Jeeps will have their own row this year, if I get really organised we may include that in judging.  Expectations for AMC Jeeps are unmodified or lightly modified. Cut off date is 1986.
  • Military Jeeps from WW2 onwards are welcome, and we love to have any other vintage military vehicles on display.  Those with living history displays are welcome to set them up.
  • Parts fleamarket:  Those selling used parts the fee is $25.00  if you have an awesome day selling we ask you to be fair and throw a bit more towards the show as this is a not for profit event.  If you are just selling 3 parts you brought in your car or something then there is no charge.
  • Vendors:  Jeep related commercial vendors are more than welcome.  We usually ask $250.00 towards the show, and if you sign on early enough we add you as a sponsor and place your logo on the t-shirt.
