I remember reading about all the people bitching ( not on this forum) about how the new Bronco was going to be too small and they would prefer it to be the same size as the old Bronco.

The dealer I visited yesterday to drive my first Bronco (Cactus Gray Big Bend) had an FE on the showroom floor that was sold for $85,000 to someone in California. They were going to have it shipped out.
