Classic Car and Jeep show at Perryville High School, Perryville, MD

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features

Brendan from This Old Jeep asked me to put the word out about a soccer team fundraiser that includes a teen who built a very nice Willys Truck.  You can learn more about it here.  The goal is to raise $300 for the club, but a side goal is to get as many classic jeeps there as possible.

The event takes place at Saturday Oct. 1st 2011. 11am-2pm perryville Outlets Center Heather Ln Perryville Md. This venue is just off of I95 at exit 93 so its easy to get to for most of us east coast guys. Registration starts at 9am.

    I’d like to pre-register for the car show. Brendan, please E-mail me with your school address, coach’s name, check payable to “???”, so I can send a $10 check. willys57 at

    Maybe if I left tomorrow in my little yellow Jeepster, I might make it from coast to coast on time. (lol.)

    Our youth sports programs in the USA are falling apart due to crazy social politics and lack of funding, but are so important to a teenager’s experience. At least it was for me growing up. I challenge every Willys owner to send their team $5. I’m sending ten. (I suppose seeing my favorite Willys color on that ’48 pickup inspires me want to donate, too.) (lol.)

    Any of you real smart guys out there know what year this truck is and why?
    I don’t know much about Willys P/U’s. Very sharp! I want one!
    Way to get behind a good cause, Mike G.!!!!

    Looks like a 47-48 with that hood and grill configuration. Kinda looks like a wagon hood though. Very nice looking truck. He should be proud.

    Ah, Dakota is the owner of this nice truck. Now I have the correct name. I’m writing a letter to his team with a check this very minute.

    Yes, I wish I could see the truck in person. Soon I will be asking Dakota for the paint brand and formula, unless it was custom mixed.

    Anyone else interested in taking up my $5 challenge (Peer pressure! Let’s help them out, five dollars at a time.) The address is above.

    I’m proud to help out a good cause that needs help, Dakota. I hope others donate, too.

    Hey E-Willys Fans, step up and help the team! $5 is all it takes; I sent $50. Can anyone else match that? How about topping me?

    I everyone could flood them with $5 each… There’s got to be 100 people checking out E-Willys every day. It’s a great site.

    Dakota, I’m having trouble uploading photos to the Perryville Car Show Facebook Page. Operator error? I even finally figured out how to re-size the photos, now I need to figure out how to have the photos accepted. Do I have to be a friend to upload pix? How about sending me your E-mail address to, and I’ll send a few photos of other ’49 Willys directly to you.

    Dakota, I appreciate the results of the car show. When someone give a little, they want to know how it helped, and the rest of the story. I also like the success story. Congratulations for raising almost twice as much as your goal. I’m glad I was able to help with my small donation. I’m looking forward to a dash plaque. Are there any photos on your facebook page?

    If you wanted to donate, but didn’t get a chance, it’s not too late. E-Willys fans interested in youth sports in America should send $5 for their healthy cause to the address in a previous message.
    **Steve E.**
