My Dad used to have an old Bronco like that for our hunting cabin use... course it wasn't pee yellow! I loved it. I believe I heard that Ford is bringing the Bronco back PDQ. Hope so.

I read they are even going to do a four door version of it.  The 2 door actually looks a lot like the early models.  It looks good IMO.

It was a beaut.  We stripped it to the frame and redid it.  Spent 2 years and over $15,000 on the restore.  300+ horse power motor, it had some pep.  Always wanted to get a 4 on the floor but never got around to it.

It was in Oklahoma, but I found it on the internet for sale in Florida on day.  So I have no idea where it is at now. 

Man I wish I would have kept it.  But, bills needed to be paid and it just sat in the garage most of the time.

I saw some renderings of the new Bronco design. Look like a darn Hummer. Supposedly, the starting price will be at $26K+. Think there was a two and four door model with 3 engine choices... one being diesel.

Here is an old Viscount radio model 1860 that I just ordered from eBay!!  From 1967---.  

6 Band ( AM,FM, SW, etc...)  cool....works wonderfully, he says....heavy---battery or electric....Big Grin


Beautiful shape!!   Clean!!  






Here is an Internet photo of the rare and hard-to-find Viscount Model 833....the kind I had as a teenager back on the farm.  AM, Marine Band, and Short Wave.  Battery powered.  The radio was about seven or eight inches wide and had a leather case for it.  It was a tremendous radio. I could pull in Europe and Radio Moscow and all kinds of things....plus I listened to all the music of the day!  It was made by Toshiba and is remembered as a really fine radio by Radio Nuts.

I got me a Grundig Party Boy 500 radio the other day off of ebay. [ Circa 1973-1975 ]  It works beautifully---AC or 6 C cell batteries.  Battery compartment was mint ( factory wrapping still on wires ) .  I plugged it in and it fired right up!  I had to hit the volume control!!  Then I put batteries in it for the first time in it's life and it fired right up again!!   oh, boy!!


I got this gorgeous German radio for a whopping $18.    Bucky


It's AM, FM and Long Wave ( that band only really works in Europe...but there are a couple of people broadcasting on Long Wave in North America....I actually heard someone on it yesterday!! )
