• Be EXTREMELY cautious if someone offers to buy your Bronco for more than your asking price and sight unseen. ESPECIALLY if the buyer is overseas. It's probably a scam.

  • The Classifieds forum is a place to buy and sell, not an open forum for people to give their opinions on Bronco values. Unless the seller specifically asks for help on pricing, please don't critique quality or asking price. If you're not interested then move on.

    Thanks!

Picture from Show-N-Shine. We lit the tiki torches for while...but it got a little breezy and some poor gal with really long hair got a bit too close while walking by and had a small "unintentional hair combustion" incident... It's entirely possible that the tiki torch Bax has listed was the one that caused the problem. That should add some value....

This is the drivers side Torch. The passenger side torch had a ball weaved into the torch, right under the torch basket. Legend has it that the passenger side of the Queen was on the windward side of the island during a storm. The storm destroyed the torch. Some say it was the extra weight of the ball in the torch. Others say it was just Poseidon's greed. Wanting another stick for his other hand. I think it just blew away. The fact is there is only one, and I am hoping it is worth more than 2 Quatloos!

I read that & got so excited that I almost bid more, but realized that I'm already ahead with 2 quatloos.🧠

That's how I remember it too.
