So, you’ve been jonesing to thwack a few commenters over the head with some choice COVID stats? Buddy, you’ve come to the right place to get your rocks off. (I only ask that you refrain from personal insults.)
This week, my passions run in a completely different direction.
After a 24-year hiatus, the Bronco is officially back, as Ford announced (choose one, depending on when you’re reading this)
- just now.
- a year ago today, which is July 13th 2021, when humanity has emerged from the pandemic chastened and demoralized but determined to band together in preserving itself and the planet upon which we depend for survival.
Not only is the Ford Bronco back, but it’s a beefed-up off-roadin’ machine meant to go just about about anywhere semi-solid land exists. Ford has managed to pack in a ton of trail-driving technology, sure, but it’s also kick-started a new inter-manufacturer rivalry on the level of the decades-long blood feud between the Mustang and Camaro. Fun!
I know. It’s completely irrational. I don’t do any off-road driving and the number of days a year in Atlanta when you need four-wheel drive and some road clearance can be counted on two hands. But it’s bitchin’ looking and you can get a 4X4 for less than thirty thousand dollars!
Me want. For one thing, this will make a badass tailgater delivery system. (You gotta love this piece of standard equipment: Bottle Opener (Located in cargo area).) For another, the original Bronco has occupied a soft spot in my heart, so I’m predisposed to like this one.
If this gets added to the GTP Gift Guide, don’t say I didn’t warn ‘ya.
And with that, the floor is yours.
