I'm not getting any younger, and I want to leave a little something behind that serves to motivate and educate the younger generation about what makes us love these Broncos.

I have this idea for a restoration project, on my 1989 Ford Bronco, that at some point, when completed will serve as a type of traveling trophy for maybe High School or Trade School Auto body education and training. I want the funders of this project to help decide what would be the best use of this vehicle as long as it promotes the Bronco Tradition

I can't afford to do this on my own so I started a GoFundMe for it.

Like I said I won't live forever, but I would sure like to leave this legacy.

Let me know what you think.

Any meaningful suggestions are appreciated.

He wants to restore this as a (retro) high school student with financial help as he can’t afford it!! I would love nothing more then to give him money to help but unfortunately I’m on a fixed income and can’t help out. Dude you keep at it and fulfill your your passion to help rebuild that bronco for a kid that deserves it even if it takes 20 years! There is no live greater then the passion for feeling accomplishment in what you have made!!!

You want to donate your bronco to someone to restore, that will then be given as a trophy to some auto shop student competition?
I wouldn't say donate it to restore. Although, loaning it to High school or Vocational school to restore it, might be an option. I doubt many schools could pay for it either. I was thinking having it restored...Then donating it as a Traveling "good will" trophy to various schools.

You nailed it...And if it inspires kids to love these as much as we do then I did what I set out to do!

I hear you.

This guy in Sc just raised $100,000 on gofundme and had 800 cars donated to him.


He fixes them up and gives them away to people in need.

I think if you combine your idea of teaching some young kids wrench turning skills.. along with the guy aboves business model. You just might have a decent idea for a non-profit that gives back to the community and teaches some good life lessons about hard work and dedication.

Good luck
