Bronco build at Gas Monkey Garage!!

Hey Everyone! I was going through craigslist looking for a hardtop for my bronco and low and behold the guys at Gas Monkey Garage had one for sale. There picture showed their sign in the background that's why I knew. Anyway, we worked out a deal on the top and I went to pick it up on Saturday. When I got there, the film crew was filming the guys finish up some welding on the exhaust system of an almost done 1966 Bronco!! They did an amazing job! They cranked it up and wow, what a beast! The paint is green with tan. It has a custom roll cage with no top. It was on the lift, but I could see that the inside flooring was rhino lined. That had a problem though. The heater core busted when they were "testing" the exhaust and it left a puddle of fluid in the passenger floor board. They wouldn't let me take any pictures. They were nice guys though. We talked about the build and my bronco for about an hour or better. This is the only pic I got. Oh, the producer told me the bronco episode is going to be next season around episode 4 or 5.

Okay, spill the beans. How did you know and what else do you know? I'm pretty sure your right. They said they bought it in Colorado. They also said it was in really, really bad shape. I think it has new body panels all the way around. It's already sold. I'm not sure how much, but I think in the 40k range. Have you seen it also?

I paid $295. Do you think that was reasonable?

haha, no tequila snorting here. On another note, they were all leaving to the biker buildoff in Vegas. One of the guys said they may have some front seats for me. See if he remembers.

When I saw it, it said "price dropped" $600, or something like that. I sent an email offering 250 and he said 300 cash. When I got there, somehow I only had 295, but they were fine with that. They are about to get a new shop across the highway I think. There were quite a few fans taking pictures.
