One of my girlfriends in college had a Ford Bronco and I loved that car. Her's was a 90's Eddie Bower Edition and I have very fond memories of it. If Ford ever released the bronco again, I'd be the first in line to grab one. But if you happen to be in the market now, you can always get a Classic Ford Bronco from the guys over at Classic Ford Broncos ($CALL).Based out of Columbus, Ohio, they start with an original, early model Bronco body, and as they say, "give it a 21st century makeover." These aren't your normal restorations. If they find a rust spot in any of their body's, they replace the entire panel. No bondo. Want something special, they can do it for you. So if you're in the market for a comprehensively restored Bronco, these are the guys to go to. via: Bless This Stuff
