At MVCC Camp Plymouth, California April 19th 2019 Meet
This is the first time the MVCC April Meet is having a Showcase involving Ford GTB Burma Trucks! We are going to try and have as many GTB’s at this show as we can get. Don Gomes, our POC, will be contacting and working with GTB owners to get them to bring their vehicles to this Showcase. ANY and ALL GTB’s are WELCOME, running and non running, restored and non restored, we just want to have as many as possible so everyone can get a chance to see these AMAZING vehicles in all conditions in person.
Also at this meet we will have CHEVROLET M6 Bomb trucks! This is your chance to see a M6 parked next to a GTB bomb truck, and Chevy and a Ford version of the WW2 Bomb Trucks. These bomb trucks played a big role in WW2. Come see history live in person. Also wanted, BOMB Ordinance of any kind! Bring and Show it off!
There will be AWARDS!. There’s a 1st Place, 2nd Place and 3rd Place Award. For more information or if you have any questions about the showcase please call MVCC VP Don Gomes at (209)765-1273.

Nice flyer!

Wow those things look rather.... uhh.... British.

Nice thing about that showcase is all the ugly will be in one location and not spread around the facility for the rest of us to have to look at.

Come on John. They're so ugly they're cute. And most 'em were Navy and Marine Corps, not British... They'll run circles around anything but a jeep.

Hah! I'd like to see the rules of that contest. Maybe if you have to carry 8 beer kegs. If not, what about a Rover or Austin Champ? There would have to be no rule about breaking down during the test.

How many GTBs are likely to show up? USA record?

Are you planning to do the jeep display at the same time, same place?

Here's the plan for the Friday showcases:
Jeeps 9:30 to 11:30.
GTB Bomb Service and Cargo Trucks plus Chevy M6 Bomb Service Trucks at 1:00 to 3:00.
Showcases will be in the Fairgrounds Arena.

If you have a GTB or an M6, BRING IT!
