Hello everyone! I FINALLY bought my first bronco last month after wanting one since high school! I ended up with a beautiful 89 bronco that’s mostly all original. I plan on keeping it garage kept and only driven on nice days. I fully plan on handing this down to my kids one day! Speaking of, I’ve got three of them and they absolutely love this thing! So this one came from Florida originally, garage kept and then a year ago moved to Michigan where the guy went through it all and cleaned her up and sold her to me. It’s got 110,000 original miles and I’m just so happy that I waited for the right one. It’s currently under the knife getting valve cover gaskets and having them sand blasted and painted, plenum painted, exhaust manifold gasket replaced, fumoto oil plug, power steering pump and tie rod ends installed. Besides that, future plans are grill, headlights and some small cosmetic pieces for my OCD self lol. Looking forward to tons of info and getting to know other bronco owners!

This was after washing and clay barring the whole truck. I will be polishing the paint with a one step polish when it returns from my mechanic.

Awwww.... that's about as far apart as we can be and still being the same state. If you ever get this way again, let me know and we'll try to meet. I bet you were pretty close to our house when you were here..... at the high school, or maybe at the fields at Phillips Park?

Phillips Park i believe it was. I’m sure we will be up that way this summer as he still plays travel ball. He’s loving this truck just as much as me now!! I’ll definitely give you a shout if I end up that way again though!
