1989 Bronco II just turned 200k miles. I had to use it as my company vehicle last year over 1200 miles a week in punishing Chicago traffic. The truck held up like a soldier. It's currently being restored. My current daily driver is a 97 Escort, 14 years old and flawlessly negotiates harsh driving landscape.
