Bronco Connection Meet/Greet Sat Oct 13th

I have talked to Dan at the Bronco Connection over in Norfolk Nebraska. He is currently restoring my '68 halfcab to better than it's original glory. After talking to Dan and a few people here, we have decided to go ahead and have a "meet and greet" at the Bronco Connection.

There has been quite bit of interest in the last few months in another thread titled "Nebraska Broncos". I am starting this new thread so that everyone feels welcome, no matter what state you are from. Please PM me or email me so that I can let Dan know about how many guys/trucks to expect.
At this point it looks like just a meet with a tour of the facility and possibly a cruise if anyone is looking for that type of event. Right now both my Broncos are off the frame, so I will have to hitch a ride or take pics as you drive by!

I will post any updates as time goes by, but right now we are looking at Saturday October 13th around noon. Bring your wife! Bring your family! Bring your Bronco!

We have 4 or 5 Broncos coming from the Papillion/Louisville area.
Trying to get 1 or 2 more to commit.

I won't have my Bronco there either, well at least not the bottom half. My body might be done and sitting out in the shop by then, so we can have something to look at at least.

Here are the pics from today when I went to pick up the chassis.

Here is the link to the build ...

Come on down, I'm sure you would enjoy the trip. I'm looking forward to seeing Dan"s operations. About 3 years ago I meet Dan at his old facility, when I can remember just a couple project Broncos in the works. Its really amazing how his business has grown in just a short time, and in a down economy. The last time I looked at his web site. I counted 26 project vehicles and a number of body only projects. I looking forward to this trip to see the shop, projects and the other Bronco owner who attend.

Yeah...I think that MIGHT be half of them in that row! Haha! Com'n down John! Come meet the other guy that beats me to the Broncos "in the weeds!". Although after this restoration I don't think I will be buying another Bronco anytime soon. I didn't say I don't still know where a few are tucked away, I just ain't buying right NOW.

Yes the Bronco Connection has grown. It is huge compared to the old building, and Dan is currently looking for a BIGGER building. Anything from EFI conversions, to suspension updates, to the NEW upholstery shop.

You need parts, they have that. You need a power steering conversion done, they do that too. Pretty much anything that you need to have a shop do, they can get it done(and done right the first time!). I learned the hard way (paying someone else to get the job done) and then end up taking it to Dan to get it fixed right. Why bother paying to have it done twice?

Going to try to make it, but not sure if the timing will work out. Thanks for getting this scheduled.

Off to the RatRod car show. Then hopefully back to work on the Bronco. Feel free to pass the word along. I just need a head count so Dan know's how many we can expect.
