Hello,
New member from Prior Lake, Minnesota. I have this Brown 1978 460 powered Bronco that came from Texas with two factory bullet holes :unsure:. Seeing it was an old Outlaw Bronco from Texas I name it Waylon. My 1979 is my Bronco from High School and I finally hauled it up to MN from the old family Farm in Wisconsin to do a restoration.

I have 2 sets off of Bronco and a set off of a Mercury Marquis (I think it how it is spelt) They have more fins and closer together. I,m like you. I like the wider spaces more.
