Old Ford Broncos running wild in Alaska

Postby Groover » Fri Jan 11, 2019 7:30 am

Here's a cool video of a guy up in Delta Junction, Alaska with a collection of old Broncos.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfFHAgu ... 7olwptkO5q

If you can't make it through all the Toyotas in the middle, skip ahead because the Coral Bronco is at the very end.

For what it's worth, Delta Junction is about 100 miles south of Fairbanks where I lived but the terrain pretty much looks the same. Delta is about 80 miles south of North Pole (ironic that North Pole Alaska is south of Fairbanks, but hey that's the way things work out).

I'd say this video was shot in September as things are just starting to turn brown (cause it's gonna snow in October).

NP Dave, maybe you can stop in some time. Looks like this guy would trade a ride in your Comet for a ride in any of the Broncos.

Yea I was looking to see my old 68 Bronco! Lots of old stuff in Delta. A lot of cars were abandon when they broke down and towed off to some ones back 40!
Had to sell the Bronco to get a truck for work.

Crappy here so I have nothing better to do but sit inside and read your ramblings :P

BTW, never had a Bronco but always wanted one, I think it probably not ever going to happen but I am ok with that :roll:

I watched that bronco video GROOVER put up,,pretty neat...this 71 Igave to my grdson that I've had for so many years,had a bench seat in it,after I bought my 77 I wanted the bench seat in it,so I swapped out the 77 buckets for the bench between the 2,and my 77 also is a bronco sport...
