Just make sure they dont do stupid shit to thier bronco like the dumbass's in the american top gear did to their nice bronco.

This wanker doesnt deserve to even sit in a bronco.
Aw man I fuggin was screaming at the TV when I watched that. In the first what 10 minutes? All because dipshit Ferrara wouldn't let off the damn gas pedal going up some rocks. Theres no reason why it should have broke there. At least the Blazer was pretty nice from what I remember

Are the English Bronco's Right Hand Drive or did they not convert them?

What do you guys do for parts over there? I wouldn't think there would be that many American Ford parts available over there. I know back 20+ years ago, I had issues getting parts Stateside for my Spitfire and had to do a lot of overseas ordering straight from British Leyland when I needed something. And it was far from cheap, even for the cheap parts.

It's not too bad actually. I've started using Rock Auto who ship to Scotland next day - quicker than I can get stuff from a UK parts store, got to pay a heap of postage and tax but still works out cheaper in the end. Trucks are still left hookers here.

Just out of curiosity what's the price per gallon for gasoline in the UK.....?

Congrats on the new baby prince George, looks like a winner! :rockon

Thanks ~ :thumbup

Our gallon is different from yours but I worked it out previously at just over $9 a gallon in your money - and we're still crazy enough to run them!

....and we don't really a do the Royals in Scotchland - especially when it was a George that killed our culture dead in 1746! (Sure he'll be a nice kid though). We're all for the Republic up here.

I'm not one for plugging places but after years of being taken up the 'wrong 'un' by various parts places in the UK I tried using Rock Auto. Again, I ordered late last night and my order is getting delivered before 12 tomorrow - and being a true Scot (even in ma kilt!) it's a ton cheaper even with the added vat and postage. Even UK stores don't deliver that quick. Just sayin'.

That's really interesting to hear how a company over here, States side can get you what you need so much quicker than your local spots. I hated waiting for what sometimes turned into Months back in the Leyland/Rover Group days when I needed parts for my MkIII Spitfire back in the day.


Biad'h no Bas!

+1. That TopGear episode pissed me off to no end...
Did you see the approach angle he took up those rocks? Unacceptable...
And then he just stood on the throttle until the rear end gave loose.
What a tosser...

On the up side, the fact that he could pin in the dead axle/wheel as he did--and keep going--was nothing short of amazing, and is a true testament as to the Bronco's incredible toughness...


Just make sure they dont do stupid shit to thier bronco like the dumbass's in the american top gear did to their nice bronco.
