The Military Vehicle Collector's of California or MVCC holds two major vehicle events each year. Today marks the start of the Spring edition of Camp Delta at Tower Park in Lodi, CA. Running today thru Sunday, 22APR2012, Camp Delta is the biggest annual military vehicle event in the west with upwards of 200 military vehicles being present at any one time! Visitors to the event will see various jeeps, trucks, motorcycles and even armored vehicles.
Each year, there is a vehicle showcase in which a certain type of vehicle or a specific manufacturer is highlighted. In the Spring 2011 event, the showcase featured "Military Dodges" such as the WC-12 seen above and the WC-57 seen below:
This Spring's event has been titled "Concours d' Eleguns" and will take place on Friday, 20APR2012 beginning at 0830. The theme for the "Concours" is mounted and towed ordnance. One of the highlight vehicles of this event will be the Military Vehicle Technology Foundation's (MVTF) M551 Sheridan:
Other events include "Engineer and Work Vehicles" also on Friday and "All IHC Motor Pool" for International brand military vehicles on Saturday, 21APR2012.
This week long event is open to the public and admission is free for day use. The camp sites maybe sold out, so it is best to check with the Tower Park KOA for availability. For more information, please visit the MVCC's Spring 2012 Camp Delta at Tower Park page.
I'll be there starting Thursday, 19APR thru Sunday, 22APR and will be working the MVTF's display. I'll be blogging and tweeting from the site with pictures and updates. My twitter handle is @toadmanstanks
