Stolen Early Bronco in So Cal
From the So Cal Broncos email list...
> Just talked to Jerry Garner, he said his Bronco was stolen this A.M.
> from his apartment parking in Glendale CA.
> Here's the description, bright orange paint, no top, Gorilla war
> flares, 6 point Smitty built cage, 3.5" lift, 35"BFG Mud Terrains,
> B.C. gas tank & skid plate, and 5.0 EFI conversion.
> If anyone sees or knows anything please give Jerry a call @
> 818-359- 2678. Thanx, Francois.
From the owner of the EB, Jerry Garner:
> First of all, I appriciate any help that leeds to recovering my
> Bronco, and will pay $1000 reward to anyone that has any information
> that helps me find it. I know that's that's probally an insult, as
> this kind of thing doesn't sit well with Bronco folks, but is all I
> can really afford. Franciois did a good job describing it. It looks
> just like the photo that Dusty posted, except the flares are black,
> and it has 35inch tires now. It was take between 9pm last night and
> 8am this morning from my parking structure at my appartment. I
> contacted the Glendale PD, and they told me that it has not been
> legally towed or impounded. The only other choise is that it has
> been stolen. It seems to me that it would be hard to hide a big
> bright ORANGE BRONCO in california with the SoCal group being so
> involved with eachother. I've called everyone I know to call and ask
> folks to keep an eye out for it. My home number is 818-551-1851, and
> my cel is 818-359-2678. I don't know what else to do other than
> wait. I've been working a lot in the last year as my brother (MIKE)
> and I are building a new house in Palmdale, and I havn't had a chance
> to spend anytime with the Bronco folks. I'm hoping that someone
> spots the rig (or it's parts) somewhere and can give me a call. Any
> information would help. I was hoping to talk to you guys next when
> my rig was ready for a run, so I appoligize for getting back in touch
> with this. This is the only group I'm a member of, however, I know
> that some of you guys are members of the EBML, and Classic Bronco
> list. If you guys would please forward this information to any list
> that you're a member of it may be helpful. I've put ton of money and
> effort into this truck, this feels like a death in the family, and
> it's really killing me now to deal with this, so I really appreciate
> this help.
Picture of the EB:
More info from Jerry:
> The plate # is 4VDD900. There's no plate on the front, only
> on the back. Also, there is no rear tire carrier, or the
> bracket for the tire carrier, just the hole -I just painted
> the truck, and I didn't get a chance to put the tire carrier
> on. Also, this truck can be recognized by the way the fender
> and rocker panels have been installed. There is no seem,
> it's metal, but it looks like fiberglass. I welded the seems
> and grinded them flush so it looks like one piece. Thanks Guys,
If anyone sees it out there please contact Jerry at the phone numbers posted above. Thanks!
