The Great Willys Picnic, Show and Swap Meet

June 12, 2011 from 9 am - 4 pm at the No. 9 Coal Mine & Museum
located at 9 Dock Street, Lansford, PA

It's time to plan for the 12th annual Great Willys Picnic, Car Show and Swap
Meet. All vehicles are welcome: stock, modified, projects, CJs, Wagons,
Trucks, Jeepsters, Military, Cars and even GPWs! Every pre-1970 Willys
vehicle is eligible to win door prizes. This show has grown into the largest
Northeast Willys event. 53 vehicles and hundreds of enthusiasts were
present at last year's picnic. There is plenty of space for selling your spare
parts in the swap meet area. Bring your Willys memorabilia and interesting
parts for show and tell. Be sure to arrive early because at 3:00 PM the door
prize winners are announced and awarded. Bring your own picnic lunch or
support the local Lansford Fire Department who will be selling hot dogs and

The Picnic is held on the grounds of the historic No. 9 Mine & Museum,
located at 9 Dock Street, Lansford, Pennsylvania. This is a great setting to
display our classic Willys vehicles, as well as entertainment for the entire
family. Closed in 1972, the mine was re-opened as a heritage tourism
attraction in 2002. Visitors can take a train ride into the mine to see and
experience first hand what it was like for old time miners to work
underground. There is also plenty to look at in the museum and blacksmith

As always the Willys Picnic, Show and Swap is free. Plan to take the
optional Coal Mine Tour & visit the Museum for a very reasonable fee.

Is anyone else planning on attending?

I'm going to drive out and hopefully get rid of some parts I won't be needing and find a beauty bar for my wagon.
