Views of the Neighborhood – Go Topless Event

This weekend the beach was inundated with Jeep owners celebrating the topless season of Jeep ownership. Here is a description of the event from the All Things Jeep website.

“Go Topless Day® is a spring tradition when we celebrate the return of warm weather and sense of fun and adventure that comes along with owning a Jeep! Go Topless Day® was started by All Things Jeep’s founders in 2008 after a particularly brutal New England Winter. The first event was a small meet up of Jeepers at a local farm and ice cream stand, but the event has since grown to include thousands of participants all around the world!”

Here is a view of how Go Topless Day® went in my neighborhood.

Go Topless Day

There were a few unusual vehicles. This is a hunter’s Jeep

Here is a restored 78 with Beer Bumps and Whiskey Dents decals.

Here is another shot of this beauty.

Yes. You could eat off the engine.


Pay no attention to that golf cart in front of a line of Jeeps.


Another line-up. There are various clubs from across the state represented.

This shot gives you an idea of the flags and spirit.


This shows that behind the Jeeps folks have brought campers for an overnight experience.

I thought this was pretty unique. A tent on the back of a Jeep.

A nod to humor.



An unusual color for sure. It was a beautiful weekend for the event and everyone seemed to be having a great time.®®

    It looks like great fun. I particularly like the Short Bus. 😀 Have a great day, John.

  2. Great pictures, John. I didn’t realize there were that many different kinds of jeeps. 🙂 — Suzanne

  3. When I was in high school, I begged my father for a jeep…he got me a Toyota Corolla instead. Great photos and perfect weather! I like that Short Bus. Happy Sunday, John!

  4. That title made me think you all had gone Cypress Cove on me…or Leisure Lagoon. Fun trucks and such. Love the little car with teeth. What model is that?

    1. It is a golf cart. You were supposed to pay not attention to it. LOL

  5. A fun feast for the eyes. I loved the golf cart!

  6. I never thought I’d live to see a purple jeep!!

    1. I know right? LOL

  7. “Pay no attention to that golf cart in front of a line of Jeeps.”? But John — that’s my favorite! Admittedly that ultra clean engine is impressive… my kitchen is jealous today. Terrific stroll along the Port A beach. Hugs!

    1. My kitchen too. Thanks, Teagan. Hugs.

  8. Took me a second to figure out the color one. Guess after you’ve seen a lime green Hummer, a purple Jeep isn’t that odd.

    1. I suppose you are right. Thanks, Charles.

  9. I confess this isn’t my thing, but it looks like they’re having great fun. I did get a kick out of the short bus, and the purple jeep reminded me of the time I saw a purple Mercedes in the Texas Medical Center with a license plate that spelled out “Gauche.”

    1. Ha ha ha. I would think gauche is the appropiate word. Thank you, Linda

  10. I love the ‘Mater golf cart. My daughter is a Jeep fanatic, and would be in heaven.

    1. There were a lot of them for sure.

  11. It looks like a lot of fun, John. I love the purple jeep.

    1. It was a fun color

  12. why no-one is topless? 😭😭😭

    1. There is a guy over there with no shirt. 😀 Besides this is America. Top-less refers to cars with no roof. (sadly as you pointed out)

      1. Hm…one guy only? 😭 We wanna topless girls on the car roof 🙂 that would be a story 😂😂

      2. I’m sure it would. 😀

  13. Cool cars, thx for the post 💕💕

  14. We used to have a jeep and I loved it! I miss it to this day. Great photos of a fun event, John.

    1. Thank you, Michelle

  15. That’s a great event to welcome the warmer season – although, how much warmer does it get on that beach? We’re starting to see the tops come off Jeeps up here. I’d have to hit a very low bridge to get the top off mine 😦

  16. Yeah, you had me going with the word Topless in the title – but I thought, “Nah, this is a family-friendly blog!” I loved the golf cart too. My son, Dominic, had a red Jeep Wrangler – but I can’t remember the year. I hated riding in it! Great post, John!

    1. Ha haha. I can’t imagine you hating riding along with the wind in your hair and bouncing all over the place. Oh wait. Yes I can.

  17. John,

    Okay, that was an unfair tease of a title to this post . . just so you know.

    But even still, I thoroughly enjoyed it Cooooool jeeps!

    Peace and jeeps

    1. Yeah. I know. I wanted to collect some interesting spam.

      1. You’re a bad man . . .

  18. Thanks for the look at local flavor, John! I am heading out today for Crystal Beach and I understand they had Jeep weekend last week. 🙂

    1. Yup. It is all over the world. Thanks, Jan

  19. John, you sure know how to grab attention with a headline!! Looks like y’all had a sunny, warm day for the Jeep festivities. I like the tent on the Jeep, as well as that golf cart — it rather looks like it’s leading a parade of Jeeps!

    1. Yeah I cheated. I liked the cart too.

  20. What a beautiful beach! Looks like fun – I suspect a ton of young men came flocking to your post, with that title.

    1. I haven’t seen any. Just women. Thanks, Noelle.

  21. Love the last pic – purple is a fav of mine.

    1. It was real purple too.

  22. What great fun and fabulous vehicles, John. When I saw the title of your post, I came straight here!

    1. Yes. I had hoped for that reaction.

    1. Grape flavored.

  23. I’ll take that pretty li’l blue one, please!

    1. Here you go. Woud you like a Harley with that?

      1. No thanks … I used to ride, but these days I don’t have a good sense of balance … better stick to four wheels or two feet. 😉

  24. Looks like tons of fun. I liked that Mater wanna be golf cart. It was cute.

    That blue jeep was pretty and a far cry from we had when I was girl. Ours was a hardtop, loud, and not too comfortable, but oh the places we went in her!

    1. I can only imagine Deborah.
