    looks like the complexity in getting the bronco out might have a direct correlation on the low milage ; )

    Had a chance to get one cheap back when I was 18. Regret not doing it quite often. I was just a dumb kid with no mechanical knowledge back then though. Oh well, we live and we learn.

    I wish I could find a reasonable. Back in 1999, in Nebraska, it was a 1966 Bronco with 72K miles and the 500th one made. All documented. It belonged to the agricultural department at the University of Nebraska where the cut out the passenger floorboard to take seed samples. It was repaired and the guy wanted $3500 with a plow. The local "experts" said it was worth $1500. I look back on it and they were not the experts after all. I should have bought it. Errrrr. We live and we learn. That generation Bronco is still my dream. Someday……..

    Nice collection of hansens. Now I know where all the nice superlights are.

    Nick - board with green band looks like a master logo but Mauimatt can confirm. Looks like an early one as most masters I've seen look more modern style shapes.

    That's maybe the best collection backed up by the worst storage system I've ever seen!

    You could probably charge admission to such a place.

    probably one of the most expensive rack systems too. just throw em on the bronco. need some garage organization.

    If you have the height for vertical storage, check out http://www.t-raxsurf.com/ I have them in my garage and they work great. I have a horizontal rack too, but the arms are aluminum so they can't support heavier longboards.
