THANKS TO ALL OF YOU THAT COULD JOIN THE FUN!!!
THANKS IN PARTICULAR TO THE SO CAL BRONCOS for doing a bang-up job (figuratively and in some cases literally) hosting a great bunch of trail runs.
We sold out of virtually everything we had made for the 50th, and at this point may not have anything left to post for sale on the web. Check back now and then to see if this changes.…
Fabulous Fords Forever was a GREAT success
As expected, over 1800 Fords of all years and models, and 140 Broncos, gathered in the parking lot a Knott’s Berry Farm on Sunday April 17, 2016, when Ford featured the Bronco for it’s 50th Birthday. Were you there?
Bronco 50th Anniversary
It’s all done, and it was great! If you were there, you also know the 50th was our Swan Song. We will not be putting on any future major Bronco events with raffles, etc. Anything we do will be low key and mostly social. It’s been a great run doing this since the 20th Bronco Anniversary. We will keep 1,000’s of fond memories from all the events. Over now to other Bronco groups to keep the magic going as our Bronco’s continue to grow in value.
Our monthly meetings
NOTE: Ignore the following statement for August, September and October. During these months we will hold our meetings along with other events. See the calendar for details. In November, this schedule should resume. (If you live in the San Diego area, we meet the first Sunday of each month at 5:00 PM unless there are holidays in the way. Check the calendar for details and join us if you can. If you own or are interested in the Ford Early Bronco, join us. Meetings are free except for the food you order.)
A new (free) off-road mapping Application for you to try.
TrailConnect Off-Road GPS is is a free off-road GPS Mapping/Tracking app designed by off-roaders for off-roaders. Check it out and let us know what you think! An Android version should be in the works soon, but for your iOS using members it is a great free tool.
[If any of you use this app, please post your comments in the Forum section of this web site!]
Is there a 2017 Bronco in your future?
If you like the looks of this concept as a future Bronco, there were bubbling rumors about building this on a South America Ford platform, but there is certainly NO 2016 Bronco. However there is more creditable recent news about a 2020 Bronco, perhaps based on the Ranger mid-size truck platform. This could be the real deal for a replacement of the Early version of the Ford Bronco! Click here to read this story.
Registration is closed for FFF in April.
162 Broncos have registered – more than any other single class of Ford – AWESOME!! If you are in the So Cal region on April 17th, you need to come to Knott’s for the day and walk around nearly 2,000 Fords of all years and models. Ford has selected Scott Pruett to be there as the Ford spokesperson, and we often see Henry Ford III at FFF. He is now heading up a new Ford group called Ford Performance which will group worldwide Ford performance efforts together.…
