My First Car, My Last Car!

I got my first FORD truck in 1991. My dad found me a 1972 Ford Bronco Explorer Sport. It was parked in an old barn on a ranch in Wyoming where the original owner parked it eleven years before. We went down to the local parts store bought a battery and threw it in. Sure enough she started right up first turn. We put some air in the tires (still the tires that FORD put on at the factory) and drove it home to Southern Wyoming. This was a five hour drive and the old Bronco did great! It had 30k miles on it then and was in great shape, a few scars from working on the ranch, but a solid truck. I drove it all through high school and college then parked it in dad’s garage for eight years until I could finally afford to ship it out East where I moved and start enjoying it again. It is now my daily driver and it is such a great feeling getting in it each day. Everytime I drive my old Ford Bronco I feel 15 all over again. I love getting compliments at the gas pump and people waving and thumbs up all the time as I drive it. Another great thing is the community of other Bronco owners that help everyone and share ideas and knowledge. some of the best times I have had is going to old Ford Bronco gatherings and getting to see what others have done to their Fords. Long live the Bronco!! :)
