Congratulations to Ghosteh your FOTM winner for July 2018

@Runs You Over Wow what and amazing Bronco but we needed to see more of it. Keep collecting pics and come back and see us but you for sure needed to post more of your badass BKO.


@1clean5.8 What can I say. I had the pleasure of wheeling with you on that last Elvis night Run and had a blast!!!! I know you have a worthy FOTM BKO for sure but I know you ran last year that kind of may have had something to do with the low vote count but you did a great job posting and being consistent throughout the whole month all the way to the end so thank you for that.


@PoppaGator I really donít think you knew what you were getting into in this competition. It really takes a lot of pics and consistency to get votes so keep taking pics and come back with some content.


@CainsBigRed What can I say. You had plenty of content, and consistently posted all the way to the end. You almost had it coming sooo close so good job on that. Keep collecting pics, and wheeling and come back and take another crack at it.


@Ghosteh What a run my man !!!!! You absolutely brought something different to the table in this competition and my opinion is exactly what FOTM and FOTY needs. You did a great job with your restoration, and storytelling to keep us entertained through the whole competition all month long so thank you for that !!!!!


Like the same saying as all the other months Ö. Great BKOís by all but there can only be 1 Help me congratulate

Congratulations @Ghosteh

To everyone that had the challenge this month, you put on a great show. But there's only one that can win!

@Ghosteh
WOW. @Quader1 is right, you brought something different to the table and that itself is something to be proud of! You showed us that a non-modified Bronco can win this event!!! However, you have one "SPECIAL" Bronco and the story that goes along with the truck is really REALLY COOL! I can't believe you found "YOUR" truck so far from home and was able to obtain it. That's a needle in the haystack story if I ever heard one!!

Another cool thing is how your son has already claimed it!!!! SMART KID!!! Love the pics of him in the driver's seat!!

And what's the story with this?




One day, I'd like a selfie of me sitting in that seat! Maybe if I find myself in your area one day, you'd let me get a pic?!! And for the record, I don't take selfies...LOL

I never knew you or your truck existed until this run. Looking forward to seeing more!!
Great job and great run!!! Bring on FOTY!!

Congratulations on a well deserved win!!
I ENVY YOUR TRUCK!!!!

Thanks everyone! When I threw my hat in the ring for this in June, I honestly didn't think that I had a shot. Although I've done a lot of work to my Bronco, it's all been to repair/replace the factory parts that have been beaten to death over the last 20+ years. FOTM has always showcased some incredible customized off-road rigs, and I simply didn't show up with one of those. But I'm glad that people enjoyed the story of H6230, because I sure do! Because I don't have many super-cool parts or off-roading pics, I had to rely on what I think is a really unusual and interesting history.

I wish that I had the opportunity to meet & wheel with you guys someday, including my competitors, which very well could happen in the future. We all share a love for these big Broncos! Although I doubt that my truck could keep up in some of those amazing locations in the pictures, it would be fun to try. And if any of you ever want to drive around the edge of a corn field, you're more than welcome to look me up!

Again, thanks for a great time!

I'd love to, but not sure school will be out then for my boy. I'll check the calendar & see if it's possible, because I'd really want him to come along.

What a cool FOTM this was, I agree with @Quader1 and @sackman9975 it was New, a refreshing look into the stock restoration of a very important Vehicle that was used in keeping our Borders Secure. Long Live The Border Patrol Agents Thank you for your service!!!! Long Live the Bronco and their owners. Congrats.

It wasn't technically "stock" with the lift, lights, radios, and whatnot, but yeah very cool story. We've had our fair share of "looking for THIS bronco" threads, and they usually don't find it. You got super lucky to find it!

Congrats to @Ghosteh on the win. Well deserved brother that is a very fine rig.

I felt like a one legged man in an ass kicking contest most of the month, but it was awesome just to be included and to see the wide contrast in rigs between the competitors. I don't think mine will be stock for long.

Congrats to all that participated!

Beings you just got your BEAUTIFUL bronco, you just didn't have the back log of pics and stories. But don't worry, that will come, and some day you may just find yourself at the top of this thread.
