O.J. Simpson: 1993 Ford Bronco
O.J. Simpson was on the run after being accused of murdering his ex-wife and her friend. On the evening of June 17, 1994 Al Cowlings, Simpson’s friend and owner of the Ford Bronco, took Simpson on a freeway chase with the world watching. It was a slow chase but it was broadcast live around the world and I didn’t see it because I was at work.
Cowlings almost immediately sold the infamous Bronco to Simpson’s former agent, Mike Gilbert, for $75,000.00 and it was kept in storage until he attempted to see it on the TV show “Pawn Stars” for $1.3 million. The show turned down the Bronco.
Today it is an exhibit at the Alcatraz East Crime Museum and it’s unclear if it’s on loan from Gilbert or sold to the institution.
In 2017 I was shopping at Target and this Bronco was parked next me:
