$115,000 Bronco in Texas. People are just stupid.
when I see prices like that for a non-collector car i just wonder where people get the cash for it. Are people just leveraged out their eyeballs for a car?

1 in 5 people in the states are considered upper class. Any of those people would have the disposable income to not even think twice about buying that Bronco for thr asking price.

Christ, an "aunt" of mine who's some sort of higher up manager in the service department at a BMW dealer. She apparently brings home 6-8k dollars in JUST bonuses a month lol.

Generally the people that can are not the people that do... why buy a peon grade Bronco that nobody will care about in a year over a Rover or a G-Wagon?

I could see young people trying to make a statement or somebody with a fresh inheritance though.

For as stupid as they are I guess I would rather have one of those $80k V8 Wranglers than a $120k Bronco...

My credo
Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
Somebody from Tallahassee will probably pay that price. I often say people here have "stupid dumb" money. But not the urban dictionary definition:
Stupid Dumb
Not to be taken literally, but an exaggeration of how someone or something as such is existing; an uber compliment or descriptor.
"That girl is stupid dumb fine, it’s not even funny."

But actually doing stupid, dumb stuff with all the money they have., like overpaying for something, just to have it first. Tallahassee is an "elitist" town if there ever was one. Every body here thinks they have the most specialist things ever crafted, even though their neighbor has the same damn thing.

Your not wrong. Money IS getting "younger" these days though. I wish there was a way to see if it sells, and for how much. There is a way to check sold listings on ebay.. forget how to do it on a phone though.

You'd need cold hard cash to cover the top of the auto loan too - you're not likely to get one for something that heavily marked up from the dealer, and especially not thrd party. But i guess this is also how some people get into crazy term on loans with high interest rates too

A normal priced one can easily cost more than I paid for my current acreage...

More than I spent on my first house, and the one I just bought in January.

There's a BEAUTIFUL 2 door Bronco Big Bend at one of our local dealers. I figured it would be long gone by now, but it just sits there out front with the sticker still in the window. $49,040

DO WANT!!!

My credo
it is easier to fix and understand than "her"
Definitely going to have quality issues..




Sad.




I hope it goes better then indicated at home.


They are pretty slow and consumptive in all of the comparo videos the last month paired up directly to the Jeeps. Especially the 4xe with the turbo 4 whizzer.

Going to be interesting to see how this shags out. That trans is lighter duty and tuned accordingly....

They are idiots ..

My first house was only $13,000, so I figured it wasn’t a very good comparison. 😂

Quickness reports seem to vary. The E jeep pummeled the 2.7... in Denver. Normal people seem happy with them though.

The biggest and only real big issue I have read on is the hard tops. Them poor people keep falling out of the struggle bus and getting ran over...

What's up with the tow ratings of the Bronco when compared to the new Ranger? The Ranger is seriously rated at double over the Bronco? What was Ford thinking there?
