Keeping up with past and present happenings in a remarkable small town.
Glad to see Butler reaping some of the recognition it deserves.
Who knows what would be today if Bantam had been able to manufacture the vehicle in the numbers the government required at Butler! Sadly, that was not the case.
Love my Jeep! Wish I could afford a new one. Probably never will be able to buy another one in my life time.
John LoganI worked at the Bantam Car Company making 1/4 ton trailers to be towed by jeep in fall of 1944 before I went into the army.I returned to the the company in Dec. 1948. I was gone 4 years. I returned to my old job working on the trailers. I was laid off when the contract was not renewed.I served over seven years in world war two and also during the Korean war .The jeep was a very reliable asset for us and took us over dirt roadsnd through fieldss. WHAT A VEHICLE!!!
I hears Jeeps came from as far away as Hawaii to the Butler Jeep Heritage Festival. It brought Jeep nuts, tourists, Butlerites and--very importantly --business to Butler. Keep it going!
