    EDIT THOUGHT I'D BRING THIS THREAD BACK


    I know I'm not the only one this happens to but isn't it annoying when someone goes up to you and says somthing like Nice bronco! or what year is your bronco? I hate that. like three people asked me that today and I told them I dont have a bronco. This makes me sort of mad that people are that stupid if they know what a bronco is then how do they not know what a Blazer is

    You think its bad from a stranger, my step-sister does it to me and my dad. It makes me want to choke her, she knows how we, dad & I, feel about Fords- if its not an EB(66-77) it might as well be an Escort. Jim.

    My dear old dad. who knows dick about vehicles, called my K5 a "van" for about two years after I bought it. I corrected him everytime until finally one day, my mom turned around and said "For God's sake, it's a Blazer!!!!" One point for mom!

    Years ago, there were only Jeeps and Broncos out there. Many folks used these names generically like Kleenex meaning tissue. Some still do. Don't take offense. They are giving you a complement.

    My dad sometimes calls it a van too. My mom calls it a vehicle because she doesn't know what to call it. BTW Broncos are only three years older than Blazers

    My father in law always call mine a bronco, So I call his explorer a Montero and when we are going to take his F@rd pickup somewhere I tell him I will go grab the chain. Funny thin is his son has a 72 Blaze and sold his Bronco. HMMM!!!!!

    <font color=blue>I get this several times a week and I still get steamed every time. Here's my theory: it's all OJ Simpson's fault. When people see a 2-door fullsize SUV they think of his infamous white Bronco and when they think of blazers, they think of the S10 size ones. If Juice was driving a K5 in that chase, the Bronco guys would have the same problem we have! Thank you Orenthal James! </font color=blue>

    My mom calls my truck a tank. She thinks everybody is looking at us when we drive by them too cuz it is so loud. But it does bug me that people call them a bronco.

    Mine's not a K5 Blazer, but it's a Big Blazer from before they renamed them Tahoes. So not only do I get, "Nice Bronco", I get, "Nice Tahoe". At least all of my friends stopped doing it. I think my screaming "IT'S A BLAZER!!!!!" a million times helped their learning and memory retention process. Yeah, I know they are complementing my truck, but it still is damned annoying. Offensive in the blue oval case.

    This tops all previous complaints!!!!!!!!!! A (former) friend once said that my '91 K5 (V1500) was "like a big Geo Tracker" when he first saw the top off of it! I nearly sh%# myself! I hope knowone else has to go thru that. At least he dod'nt call it a ford. What the hell does he know, he traded in a ford ranger (2x4) for a Dodge Ram.

    Right on. That makes me irate too. Whenever I'm at the gas station and they come on the intercom and say "Pump 6 is on for the Bronco" I always go inside afterward and yell at the guy. I swear, one more time and someones getting punched.

    Next time just cover your plates up when you go to the gas station and fill up and drive away. When they go to tell the cops what kind of vehicle it was, they will never catch you because they will be looking for a bronco. <font color=red>lol</font color=red> I am only kidding.

    Seriously all this time I thought my friends were the only ones who did not know the difference between a Blazer and a bronco. It is good to see other people have the same problem. I have Heartbeat of America emblems everywhere on that Blazer and still people call it a bronco.

    "Have you driven over a ford lately?"
