    Bronco looks good. You never can get your money back out of one, much less time, but there is worse (i think) things you can blow your money on.

    If anyone wants to just help me throw money away, I've got this one that I hope to get started on eventually.
    Don't think it's been on the road since 02-03. I pulled the motor, and it snowballed from there. It's a stripped hull now waiting for me to finish the jig and start changing panels.
