10th Annual Great Smoky Mountain Jeep Club Invasion
August 25 @ 9:00 am - August 27 @ 5:00 pm$15
The 10th Annual Great Smoky Mountain Jeep Club Invasion will be held from August 25th to 27th at the Le Conte Center in Pigeon Forge. The center opens at 9am, and closes at 5pm each day. Admission for adults (13+) is $15 per day, and children (6-12) is $5 per day. Those kids under 5 years of age free. With more than 100 vendors one can find anything for your Jeep! They cover the gamut from bumpers to lighting to winches, and everything in between! Food and drink will be available from the Le Conte Center concessions. Numerous restaurants are within easy walking distance. A Show & Shine event is open for all Willys, Kaiser, and Jeep models, with nine classes based on year and/or model.
We’d love to have you and your Jeep/Willy/Kaiser stay with us at The Sidecar Inn while attending the Great Smoky Mountain Jeep Club Invasion. Many years ago I bought a 1948 Willy truck. I didn’t know much about Willys trucks. Since it had an OHV inline six-cylinder engine under the hood I knew it wasn’t original! What I discovered was an early to mid-sixties Jeep Wagoner or Gladiator frame and drivetrain under the sheetmetal. It was a very clean modification. I ended up replacing the 230 cubic inch Tornado inline six-cylinder with a Chevrolet 327 cubic inch V-8, with a 350 Turbo transmission.
