    I blame OJ for this one. lol. I know the older folks know what my Blazer is, but Ive had young guys say my truck looked good and asked if its a BRONCO, I say no its a Blazer. Anyone else get this? :D

    My own friends ask my how my Bronco is coming a long. I get this all the time its sickening. I just respond Blazer in the middle of their sentence. The bad thing is when I have to correct them several times. Then, I let them know I would never drive a bronco.

    Early Bronco guys get "Nice Jeep" & similar. Which would you rather put up with?

    I get it all the time. One guy at work asks probably once a week about my bronco. Sometimes I just stare blankly and wait for him to correct the faux paux, sometimes I will rudely interject Blazer, and others I will just ignore the question entirely.

    The Zastava Koral (known in the US simply as the Yugo) is a subcompact vehicle built by Zastava corporation. The car design is based on the mechanics of the Fiat 127 and Fiat 128, under licence from Fiat, and a modified Autobianchi A112 body style. It sold for around $3,000 - $4,000 from 1986 - 1990.

    Oh god, yes. "Do you still have that Bronco?" I never cease to be amazed at the fact that anyone can say that when the full-size Bronco was nothing but Ford's VERY delayed reaction to world's first full-size, truck-based "sport utility vehicle", the Blazer. Even funnier, at the same time, very few people seem aware of the early Bronco's existence.

    At least people recognize that your rig is a SWB 4x4.

    When I first bought my Blazer(15 years ago), my dad used to refer to it as my "van"....:surepal:

    Ha ha, I've had a parts guy while actually looking at the truck tell me I was wrong and I was in actual fact the owner of a Bronco. I pointed a few salient Blazer features to the peanut...:surepal:

    I get it ALL the time and I mean ALL the time :doah:

    I get it all the time actually the buddies tease me with it saying hows your bronco doing or thats a nice bronco you got there. But i've come across a few around here who wheel and actucally know what it is. A fellow mudder has a bronco and we parked them next to each other to take pictures and show the difference to idiots. Its funny tho this one guy really likes to yank my chain with the bronco thing, I just ask him if he has had any girls in his sebring besides his sister.

    I get people all the time telling me how nice my Camaro is and it is a 78 Trans Am. I am like C'mon people it looks exactly like the T/A in Smokey and the Bandit. I guess to me a Camaro and a T/A are a night and day difference in appearance but some people just can't tell for some reason.

    I have to agree with you all, it gets rather annoying to keep having your truck referred to as a Bronco:angry1: , especially when the Bronco is my enemy
    Besides the Blazer:k5: is much better built than a Bronco
