Coverage of the PA Jeeps 10th Annual

2005 All Breed Jeep Show, York PA

What Jeep Show would be complete without the Show and Shine.  The All Breed Jeep Show had hundreds of Jeeps of all varieties covering a large portion of the York Fairgrounds.  The Show-n-Shine was broken down into several categories:
CLASS #1  CJ 5
CLASS #2  CJ 7 
CLASS #3  Wrangler YJ 
CLASS #4  Pre CJ5 / Willys
CLASS #5  Cherokee/Liberty
CLASS #6  CJ8/CJ6/Comanche
CLASS #7  Full Cherokee / Wagoneer / J Series
CLASS #8  Wrangler TJ / LJ
CLASS #9  Military
CLASS #10 Non-Street Legal / Specialty

Further Category Identification was a breakdown of  modifications:

  • STOCK (less than 3 Minor modifications and no Major modifications)
  • MODIFIED (no more then 3 Major modifications with no limit on Minor modifications)
  • UNLIMITED (4 or more Major modification)

Below is a collection of pictures throughout these categories.

Jeep facts:
The CJ-7 was produced by AMC from 1976 until 1986. The CJ-7 is basically a CJ-5 stretched out an extra 10" behind the front seats. This made the CJ-7 a 91" wheel base vehicle vs. the CJ-5s 81". This additional 10" allowed AMC to offer an automatic transmission for the first time in a CJ.

Jeep facts:
A CJ-7 tub can be identified by the shape of the door opening, the opening is square where as the CJ-5 has a curving door opening. The Wrangler (YJ) tub has the same dimensions as the CJ-7 and can be used on a CJ-7 with some modifications.

A view from the shaded Grandstand

You might have seen this Jeep before.  Its been in a few shows in the northeast.  There had been an incredible amount time, money and detail put into this Jeep CJ-5.  So much so that we doubted it would be seen on the rocks of the obstacle course this year.  Maybe next year?  Maybe not.
