Event Dates: June 19, 2020 - June 20, 2020 Location: Aurora, Ohio
Rescheduled from May to June. Announcing the 28th Annual Spring Willys Reunion will once again be held at the Bertram Inn located in historic Aurora, Ohio. As always, the show will host a large swap meet where vendors from all over the country will be selling New-Old-Stock and good used parts to help restore your Jeep and keep it original and on the road for years to come.
This year’s feature vehicle will be the Universal Jeep CJ5, which is celebrating it’s 65th year.
Our featured guest speaker this year is Phil Norvoid, owner of the Epic Willys Adventure (https://www.epicwillysadventure.com) which is an invitation-only event where teams traveling in all-original vintage Jeeps, cruise America’s byways in a unique adventure - no GPS or cell phones allowed! This year’s trip will trace the route of the Oregon Trail.
Our technical event will be a follow-up to last year’s T-90 transmission rebuild. Again, well known Willys Jeep collector and restoration expert, Joe Deyoung, will be rebuilding of a Dana 18 transfer case under the big-top tent in the vehicle display area. We will then raffle off the transfer case during the banquet.
This year, we would like to make a Jeep themed Christmas tree to donate to the Akron Children's Hospital Fund. They have a world renowned burn care unit. Each year, hundreds of trees are auctioned off in December to raise money to help the Children of Northeast Ohio. If you can, make or find some Jeep related ornaments to decorate the tree or lights, toy Jeeps for under the tree and ornaments are all welcome.
