Early Bronco Sightings

I live near Chicago. I haven' seen one early Bronco. I can't even remember seeing one in over a year. Are they numerous in your area?

I just drove an EB from Pocatello, ID to San Jose, CA and only saw 2 others. One in ID parked beside a house, and another at a fellow Bronco afficionado's house.

We have 2 silver EBs, and a blue '76 Ranger I see around my neighborhood on the regular. maybe once every 2 weeks.

Lots of survivors here.
Probably because of the dry climate and high gas prices.

There's several around here. Only a couple of "Daily Drivers". I just made contact with a guy who claims to have EIGHT that he's going to part with or part out. Wished I had some money...

We have quite a few here in my area, for being in the flat lands. Just talked to howiebuilt from Iowa today he's moving out here and should meet him tonight. It's good to have another broncohlic in the area.

I spoke too soon. I just walked out the door at work to pick up some parts and saw a lime green topless one drive by. I get across the street and talk to the other rubber neckers that were lucky enough to be outside too. One guy said that was a nice "Blazer" so I gave him the "are you crazy?!?" look and told him that it was an EB. He didn't believe me and said he thought he saw Ch@vy on the tailgate. Low in behold the driver stopped and talked to us. It turned out to be a '71 and was the forth one that the driver had. As he drove away I laughed as I read FORD on the tailgate. I got a soda out of that one.
