2017 International Harvester Western Regionals [Gallery]
Every April, Scouts West holds the International Harvester Western Regionals event at the iconic ghost town of Calico, California. The gathering draws fans of International Harvester 4x4 vehicles from all over the Southwest. Once a large manufacturer of everything from agricultural machinery to household appliances, International Harvester built a successful run of light-duty vehicles up until the mid-1970s, and it still carries a healthy fanbase.
Much like the town of Calico, International Harvester is no longer in full swing; however, that hasn't stopped the devoted fans of these unique 4x4s from building them to tackle some of the toughest rock trails the Mojave Desert offers, which can be found directly adjacent to the towns abandoned mines. From bone-stock show trucks to fully equipped overland rigs, the event featured vehicles built for every lifestyle and purpose.
