After my wife passed away in 2014, I got crazy and sold three of our vehicles, a 2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL, a 2004 GMC Safari van and my DD, a 2000 Z28 Camaro. I replaced them with a 2009 Victory Red Corvette. It wasn't long before I missed the van and it's ability to haul stuff. Not throwing a sheet of plywood into the Vette or my '69 Mustang. Anyway, back in 1983 I bought a new full sized Bronco as a family car. We skied a lot back then and I hated putting on chains. The Bronco, nicknamed the "Broncallion" by a very good buddy of mine, was around for 17 years. When I sold it in 2000 it had 177K miles on the clock, but it still looked pretty good and ran great. It had served as the wife's DD, the family vacation vehicle, a grocery getter, a work truck and even a stump puller once. It was an XLT, so it was pretty nicely equipped with power door locks, cruise control, A/C, big tires and I had added a step bumper and some aluminum wheels. It was a carbureted 302 with a C6 behind it. Well, I just bought a replacement for the Broncallion. It's a 1995 Bronco XLT with 164K miles on the clock. It's got all the amenities that the '83 had plus power windows, rear window defogger and electric hubs. It is powered by the 5.8L (351W) fuel injected engine backed up by an AOD. The original Broncallion was dark blue with silver sides. This one is a real statement of the '90s being decked out in teal and white. Forthwith I present the Broncallion II, Son of Broncallion! Not bad for a 22 yr. old truck, huh? And everything except the cruise control works.
