the new bronco

brought this bronco to its new home on Fathers day. will definitely have it at the Ford and Mercury truck nationals in August, hopefully with all its bugs worked out, hasn't been used much in the last 6yrs, maybe 1000miles.

was offered to me over 2 yrs ago , but sellers son bought it.
his son is going away to school out of state in the fall and needed the money so he contacted me.

very cool,

Wow, that is absolutely beautiful! The color combo is awesome, and those wheels look perfect under it. Good catch James.

it took a lot of patience and a lot of pep talk from the mrs to actually commit to buy it at a time when money was way down. off work since 1st weekend in may, back to work on june29. had to tap inot my shop build fund and looks like no shop this year now.

going to get a canvas garage to keep it in temporarily.

a pic of it in its new home, removing the tow bar, putting the bumper and rear shaft back on.


Barney really impressed me, 19.6 mpg and 20.4 hauling it home , empty on the way down got 24.4 and 28.0 mpg. the powerstroke is just getting into its groove, too bad the body is falling off.
