Ouch that sucks. I hate hearing stories like that. At least no one was injured

a friend of mine just got the first new bronco in my home town. I had to sneak a pic with my classic. the weather was so nice this weekend I took the bronco for a pretty long shakedown cruise. the first time I have had a chance to drive it since the ujoint debacle. it seemed to handle just fine. no weird noises or anything. looking forward to putting some miles on it this summer.

I had been thinking about putting a stripe kit on the bronco and I wasn't really sure if I wanted to or not, then I saw this special decor stripe which was common on the original bronco. i never really liked it that much but I saw it on a sema bronco and it looked really good, so I decided that with the color of my bronco, my wheels, and other badges as well as the fact I put the silver ford lettering on the tailgate that silver would look good. so I ordered the stripes. I vacillated a few days before biting the bullet and putting them on, but I really like the way it turned out. I liked it before, but it looks even better now I think.

I haven't done too much to the Bronco recently, I have taken it to a couple car shows. a small all make show a few weeks ago where I got a top 20 award out of about 200 cars. there were no classes or anything. then I went to the mustang club of southwest Iowa all ford show recently. this was a huge show, 36 classes. mostly mustangs of course. The Bronco fell in the "Trucks" class. it was I think the largest class there, about 15 really nice vehicles. besides mine there were 2 other really nice early broncos, a nice Bronco II that you rarely see these days, and a couple nicely done custom trucks. the Broncos took first and third, but I still think we should have swept it. we got a first place trophy for that one. a huge trophy made out of a broken crankshaft lol.

then I decided to add this stainless air dam that goes between the radiator and grill. I polished it and coated it with shark hide so hopefully it will stay looking nice. I think it cleans up the front nicely even though i think it would look better if it was one piece all the way across, but it is made this way to clear the stock hood latch mounting point.
