If you are like me, and have been literally waiting years for the new Ford Bronco, well you are in luck, as our friends at the Blue Oval have released a new teaser video. Of course it is not actually of the new 2020 Ford Bronco but it is Broll of the Ford Bronco R Baja Racer. According to the company, the Bronco R race prototype is designed with the same production model’s body-on-frame architecture to test its capability and durability, while also energizing off-road enthusiasts who eagerly await the return of America’s original sport utility vehicle. At the end of the day, although this truck is on steroids it is our best look yet at what the new Bronco might look like.
The newly unveiled Ford Bronco R racing truck arrives to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Rod Hall’s Baja 1000 victory in 1969. Shelby Hall, Rod’s granddaughter, will run the new one in portions of next week’s Baja 1000.
After driving around town for the first few days, we headed over to check out LA’s amazing and historic Petersen Automotive Museum. The pictures do not do it justice but the gist is, this is a must see for any car enthusiast. The Museum entails the typical historical details and stories about cars and the people who built them but the really interesting part is the guided tour of The Vault. The Vault consists of all the vehicles that are not on display as well as many of the vehicles on loan from benefactors. Unfortunately, there is no photography allowed in this section so we were not able to take any pics which just means you must come here yourself. Nonetheless, here is our coverage from the museum section which included a range of vintage and new vehicles.
