Editorial- July August 2016
I have really enjoyed covering 75 years of Jeep history in Australia over the first three issues of 2016. This issue we feature more great historical material from 1941-1977 and will have follow-up material in the remaining issues this year.
Plans are going well for the 75th Jeep Anniversary and Jeep Show being held on the 1st and 2nd October this year in Bendigo, Victoria. There will be a 6,000m2 building full of Jeep models from the last 75 years as well as vendors showing their parts, accessories and equipment for Jeep, camping and the outdoor lifestyle. Jeep displays will also be outside the main building amongst the food vendors and Jeep Club stands. Further on will be a huge carpark for visitors to park their Jeeps for all to see. Also in the carpark there will be a travel ramp in action where you can check out your Jeep’s flex and watch others climb the ramp.
The event is being run over the two days to give everyone the opportunity to be able to visit and enjoy what is on offer. Thanks to those who have emailed offering their classic Jeeps for the display. If you have a classic Jeep you are happy to show, please email your info to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
