Veey Reliable Vehical — Durable workhorse truck. I have the inline V6. After buying it as a toy to drive around and listen to music, i realized what a great buy it was. The gas milage is great after air filter,exaust and TBS (custom add-ons). I recommend this truck to anyone.

Bronco, A Classic Suv That Can Handle Anything You Throw At It. — The Bronco for me is a wonderful vehicle. When you need to get away from the fast times in the city the Bronco will take you there. There is a very strong cult following of the Bronco and you can see numerous amounts of them at every offroad rally and meet. One of the top SUV's in the American market in its hey day the Bronco still survives and is loved by many!

1989 Full Size Bronco — It needs some tlc, but it's a tank... the passenger window doesn't work, the rear door and windows don't work... but it's lifted and the 4x4 works after 21 years. On top of it, the engine has to be pretty out of spec with no signs of quitting... I love it

Pros

Strong/ sturdy, turning radius, fun

Cons

fuel economy, acceleration

1989 Ford Bronco — It is a 302 ci/ 5 liter with a little under average acceleration but the turning is amazing because of its truck turning and car wheel base. I would suggest a 351 ci engine for it but a 302 still does fine for anything from daily driving, off-roading and even towing. The body is built strong and the only rust problem I have had on it was the typical bottom of the tailgate which i did not have to replace even after 20 years but did anyway because I repainted it. The fuel economy is pretty awful: 10 to 15 miles to the gallon. But on the bright side there are so many different things you can do with it, like putting a lift kit on it and going off-roading with it, or towing things.

With Some Tlc An Awesome Ride. — Reliale although running very poorly. But had a clean interior and stunning exterior. I drove it to school everday, and was still able to take it off-roading on the weekends. Wasnt to bad on gas, it probably cost $160 a month on gas... so maybe it wasnt to good on gas either, but i was able to make enough money working fast food and going to school to drive it. :)

Blazers Suck. — Not the fastest thing on the face of the planet, but in something that tall with a shorter wheel base than a honda civic, who needs accelleration and top speed? Ford did a good thing in the 80s, doing better in almost every way than the competition. The standard features, reliability, and modern design of this Bronco towered over Chevy, and had put Dodge's full size SUV out of comission.
