Columbiana, OH (PRWEB) May 27, 2015
4WD, industry-leading provider of aftermarket parts and accessories for Jeeps, has signed on as a sponsor for the Willys Jeep Rally in Hueston Woods State Park, Ohio May 29-30. The rally will feature a show, swap meet and live demonstrations as it honors the celebrated Willys Jeep. The 7th annual event will also have scenic cruising on rural roads, a banquet and working demonstrations of vehicles on a farm next to the state park.
Spring is prime time for Jeep enthusiasts to gather at events to celebrate the versatile vehicle’s origins and legacy. Earlier this month, 4WD was a sponsor at the Spring Midwest Willys Jeep Reunion in Hudson, Ohio and will also be a sponsor at the upcoming Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival in Butler, Pennsylvania June 12-14.
“I'm appearing at the Willys Jeep Rally being held in Hueston Woods State Park and I'll be guest speaker at their banquet as well,” says Pat Foster, columnist at Hemmings Classic Car. In addition to his presentation, Foster will also be selling autographed copies of his latest book Jeep: America's Greatest Vehicle. “That should be a really fun time.”
Originally manufactured from 1941-1945, Willys Jeeps aided the World War II effort by being deft yet durable all-utility vehicles. Whether pressed into service to save lives on the battlefield or used to transport gear, supplies and soldiers, Jeeps were crucial to the Allies. The Willys evolved into the “CJ” civilian Jeep and after it helped win the war it enjoyed immense popularity with civilians.
The Midwest Willys Jeep Reunion, Inc. presents the annual Willys Rally in Hueston Woods with a scenic backdrop that includes a pioneer farm park and a restored covered bridge. Miles of state park roads give attendees a chance to wheel in their vintage Willys or more contemporary Jeeps and the show field overlooks an 800-acre lake.
The Willys Jeep Rally starts Friday morning at 9 a.m. at the Hueston Woods Lodge and family activities include horseback riding, camping and renting boats at the marina.
