Best of the Tetons, Great Photography Tours In Jackson, WY


Eastern Idaho Early Iron Organization (E.I.E.I.O) in Jackson Hole

Detail shots of some of the vehicles on display.


You’ve probably heard the saying, “They don’t build ’em like they used to”. No doubt the saying applies to the classic vehicles on display at the Virginian Lodge this weekend. I stopped by this afternoon to take a few tight images and details.

For this post, I am simply going post a few photos. If you want to read more about them, check out this Facebook link: Eastern Idaho Early Iron Organization (E.I.E.I.O) The poster on the page suggests this is year 42 for the event.


More than likely, you’ll see the classic vehicles driving up and down the streets of Jackson and also through Grand Teton Park. Poker Runs are usually part of the event. I asked about the parade on Saturday, but the group I asked weren’t sure there would be one this year.


I walked around with my Gitzo tripod, Nikon D5 and Tamron 150-600mm G2 lens and took roughly a hundred shots in just a short period of time. Instead of taking full vehicle shots, I concentrated on some of the more interesting details around the courtyard at the Virginian Lodge. Other vehicles are on display along the big sign on West Broadway. You can’t miss them!


The vehicle owners will often be willing to “talk your ear off” if you ask them anything about their vehicle. They are obviously proud of their work—rightfully so! Each one is painstakingly restored.


Some elements simply make you smile!


There are lots of models and makes of vehicles at the event. I liked this style of lights found on quite a few of them.


Chrome emblems and logos were common “back in the day”. I could have taken another hundred images…easily!


The center hood ornament in the vehicle above is shown below.


If you get a chance, head to the Virginian and see the classic vehicles for yourself! Remember….take your camera!


If you miss the event this year, I am sure there will be #43 next year about this time!

Here are a few more details I found about this year’s event:
