Pennzoil celebrates Jeep at the 2015 Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival.
Just north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, you’ll find the birthplace of Jeep, a place where thousands of Jeep enthusiasts flock to every year for one of the largest gatherings of Jeepers in the world.
In 2015, Pennzoil blazed a trail to the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the creation of the first Jeep in Butler, Pennsylvania. With over 25,000 attendees over a three-day-period enjoying off-road trails, a special Jeep playground, vendors, and history exhibits, there was something for everyone.
We even gave every registered participant a free case of Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil.
One staple of the festival is a massive parade of Jeeps through downtown Butler, and the mission of this year’s festival was to bring back a famed record to the birthplace of the Jeep.
We’re proud to announce that with 2,420 vehicles participating in a route that spanned over 2.75 miles, the 2015 Bantam Jeep Festival now holds the Guinness World Record for the largest parade of Jeeps. Pennzoil was proud to be a part of the historic parade, which showcased different models spanning from the 1940s to today.
