The loss of the Ford Bronco...

Post by Bear_B » Tue Jul 19, 2005 8:44 pm

Am I the only one who grieves the loss of the old Ford Bronco? I always thought it was a GREAT vehicle...

Wish I had one... the Ford 302 was a great engine.

They're still quite availible, you know. New cars aren't all that exists.

They are great trucks, but, I'm a Chevy man, so I'd have to go with a K5 Blazer if I wanted a vehicle of that type.

I'm actually in the market now for a Ford Bronco. Even if they still made them I would rather have an older version myself. Older cars are easier to work on I think. And simplicity will be good in the PAW.

Nothing beats having an SUV and a Pickup in one vehicle. So far every one I've looked at have had over 120,000+ miles. So looks like I'm gonna have to rebuild the motor. Once I do that I think I'll know enough about in innards to rely on it as my PAW vehicle.

Besides, what looks more badass than a Bronco raised up, with big off road tires, spot lights, and a brushguard? Excluding Will's badass ZS truck.

Ditto, on all. I'm a Chevy guy also. But saddly I don't have a GM truck now, I have a Jeep now because I got a great deal on it. I prefer older iron over newer. I do own one Ford product now a 1969 Lin Continental Mark 3; it's a cool ride, it's not her fault she's a Ford! I think Ford's are a pain to work on myself.

Give any solid front axled 4x4 with Dana 60's, and I'm a happy guy

I have a weakness for Toyota pickups, personally, someday I'm going to build my dream Toyota. 40" IROK's and Dana 60 axles will be involved. :D

But as a daily driver, I far prefer full-size Chevy's.

Hey Donny, it's good to hear from another Lincoln fan on the board. While I consider my 4x4 Suburban the rig to be used to initially crush the walking dead, my black 71 Lincoln Coupe will be used to view the carnage I will leave behind me! :twisted:

wow. Is that yours? That's a nice ride. It really needs a big ZS logo on the side and a gun turret on the roof then it would be complete. :)

Guys, thank you for the nice comments about my car. The Linc is not even CLOSE to where I want it to look someday, but it is finally starting to run and sound good. Unfortunately, because it has a 460 Hi-Po it also gets maybe 8 or 9 miles a gallon :shock: ! And thats if I keep my leadfoot off the go-pedal. If I let her fly full throttle, I can actually SEE my gas gauge move towards empty! Expensive car to run, but it sure is fun pulling up next to a boring, generic econo-box vehicle at a stoplight, and having the driver start slobbering over your car. Of course, the reverse being true as well, I would probably give my firstborn to get his gas mileage with my Lincoln Coupe :( . I do wish you could hear my baby when she's just idling. Gives me goosebumps sometimes. I now have the irrational need to run out and start my car, just to hear it run. I will start building the turret tomorrow...

Yeah I'm sad because I have one that's dead sitting in my front driveway, and I wanted it, but I think it's too far gone.

I thought my pics WERE sized correctly Bear. As for Donny, well it ain't his fault... he's trying to make that itty-bitty Mark III look BIGGER! :P I'm just jokin' Donny, I like Mark's well enough, but I love full-size Coupes. BTW, that is a VERY nice looking car, betcha it's much nicer looking close up than mine. I don't ever want my Linc to lose some of it's brutal, rough edges.

In my best James Earl Jones voice imititation..."And know this, you desperate survivors of a shattered Earth, all Zombies shall fear my long black metal beast, as it comes thundering out of the darkness to bring blessed relief to their cursed undead existence, so that they may finally receive peace thru superior octane."

I need another beer...

Download the feature on the Toyota Hilux! Even the staff were amazed at how much it held up to their abuse.

By abuse, I mean: Running it into a tree, drowning it in sea water, setting it on fire, dropping an RV trailer on it, hitting it with a wrecking ball and putting it atop a building that was about to be demolished and it was fixed by just a mechanic with only basic tools and without spare parts. And it still ran.... :shock: 8)

2.0 liter engine? That's pretty small for a diesel.
