After a month-long, near-death stay in the hospital due to a vehicle accident in 1991-92, I was left with no options for a ride since my car was totalled. A friend’s Mom was selling her husband’s 1981 Bronco (he died of cancer) for a great price…$1800 in 1992 dollars. So I squandered the funds and bought it. Tough old beast, it took me all over the USA and Canada in all types of weather, and it never skipped a beat. That old Bronco helped me get my life back in order after a devastating accident. I’ve had a Ford in my driveway ever since…’81 Bronco, ‘96 Ranger, and currently a ‘90 F150 with 258,000+ miles and counting.
