If you’ve ever wondered about the history of the Jeep, it’s WWII roots and the transition into the family friendly 4×4 we have today, then you should head to the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival this weekend. The original reconnoissance vehicle built back in 1941 for the US Army was the BRC by the American Bantam Car Company from Butler, PA. This yearly festival celebrates that heritage and the impact it has had on this great country. The event starts Friday night with the invasion of downtown Butler as thousands of Jeeps inundate the peaceful town and carries on through the weekend with events at the Butler Fairgrounds. Zone Offroad will be in the vendor row with great show specials all weekend long. Stop by and see the Comanche and talk to the guys to hear more about this year’s Ultimate Adventure. For all the info on this great event check out the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival and check out photos from last year’s festival on Facebook.
