  1. Old Bronco Resale Values

    Yeah I've got an old Land Rover people are always asking about. A woman followed and flagged me down, wanting to buy it on the spot. I never thought my LR would be "economy class" compared to EB though! Unfortunately EB jumped the shark with prices once it got on the radar of a wider big...
  2. Old Bronco Resale Values

    My interest in old 4x4s has always been as vehicles you could have fun with for a relatively low cost. Bought my CJ5 for $1400, maybe put in $600 over the years, drove it around for a decade. Rough around the edges and loads of fun on/off road. The EB hobby with 35k+ resto and those crazy...
  3. What’s your dealbreaker for a new Bronco?

    Hopefully Ford offers optional white spoke wagon wheels on the Bronco. Sporty! :)
  4. Ford targets April 14 to resume US production

    I've been watching the Ford stock, and reading prognostications. Ford dropped the dividend, which is good/bad depending on who you ask. Hard to get a handle, some claim bankruptcy is a likely conclusion, due the virus downturn and other factors that were already hurting the company. Others...
  5. Ford targets April 14 to resume US production

    From CNBC this morning: "Ford postpones reopening ‘key’ plants due to coronavirus pandemic" More here: https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/31/ford-postpones-reopening-key-plants-due-to-coronavirus-pandemic.html
  6. What’s your dealbreaker for a new Bronco?

    At this point from what I've seen of the leaks, the main deal breaker would be price. I don't buy expensive new vehicles. I'd be looking at fun and utility in a base model. The other possible deal breaker, hate to bring it up, is if the IFS is no good in terms of travel and slow speed trail...
  7. The Bronco information drip feed

    Land Rover helped UNIT defend against several intergalactic alien invasions ... top that case closed!
  8. The Bronco information drip feed

    Yeah, I'm just curious why there seemingly was no push by Ford to get the early Bronco into a wider market around the world. We don't see many of them around the world like LR and Jeep vehicles. I think the EB would have fared well and been amicable to various modifications due to the body...
  9. The Bronco information drip feed

    I don't recall the early Bronco (1966-1977) used much outside of the USA. Least-ways not as much as Land Rover Series and Jeep CJs. Even though the early Bronco was a decently strong vehicle in terms of design and various components, for whatever reason Ford didn't seem to push for it to...
  10. What's next?

    Understandable. Although probably Ford marketing and other employees are mostly business as usual in terms of online meetings and collaboration. (Little has change for me working in IT.) I suspect it's more Ford not wanting to appear unseemly pushing their new vehicle while people are dealing...
  11. Ford targets April 14 to resume US production

    I work in IT and mostly from home - so basically nothing changed and I never got to leave work. :(
  12. Ford targets April 14 to resume US production

    Personally I'd rather have dates and policy based on science than some religious holiday. Having a reality TV entertainer and collection of fawning pastors around him pushing this resurrection Sunday thing is not what I consider hopeful. But yes Ford, it would be nice to have another leak.
  13. Ford targets April 14 to resume US production

    Yeah stock price though is based on human perceptions at any given moment, along with forces outside the company such as government interference, and then some actual company performance. It's interesting to see how it plays out in the stock market. The historic unemployment figures today so...
  14. Bronco Trim Levels & Models

    Living with midwest weather - I won't go without a hardtop. I added that and auto-trans, but subtracted the towing package. At $47,565 I suspect there are deals to be had now given the economy? If negotiating the dealer charges down, should be able to get one for mid 40k? Still a cold day in...
  15. The Bronco information drip feed

    Good point. Some folks don't like the idea of vehicles departing from the sit nearer the floor type of seating position, as if that's always how it's been and should be. When in reality earlier vehicles had a more upright position with higher view of surroundings. I know people who buy SUVs...
  16. will the bronco be cancelled altogether?

    It's already tanking - leastways a lot of income lost for folks in certain industries. One reason why I'm happy the new car I bought in January was only 14k. I know people into it for nearly 100k in new vehicles, and wouldn't want to have those payments along with mortgage, credit card and...
  17. will the bronco be cancelled altogether?

    Several years ago, I asked a guy at my IT firm, why he left China with his family for the USA. I expected to hear about wanting more freedom and opportunity. But he said #1 reason was environmental degradation in China. I've read about China having severe air quality issues in some areas and...
  18. will the bronco be cancelled altogether?

    Lower oil prices is a key item - that could reduce a customer rush towards smaller more fuel efficient economy cars. And that's a good thing for Ford, seeing as they are getting rid of some economy car lines. If we have a recession plus high oil prices, Ford won't be able to offer customers...
  19. Paying Cash/Trading something newer??

    Looks like Ford is at 4.1 per share. That is down quite a bit as percentage from 5 yesterday. I wonder how low it will go? The situation with plant closing and long term customer purchasing losses (through less hours and unemployment) has me concerned in terms of upswing. Also Tesla is way...
