• The only specific vehicle Ropey gives a thumbs-down to is a Bronco… and what does Vince suggest? How about a Bronco? Cracks me up.

    • Additionally I don't think Vince realizes that a 1990s Bronco may not count as "vintage enough" for the NORRA Mexican 1000.

      I'd suggest this 1975 Toyota FJ55 Land Cruiser with 350 small block swap:


    • If you look at the NORRA website for 2016 registration, you'll see all kinds of stuff from 60s Ramblers to 90s Ford pickups….but yes…if the glove don't fit, you must drive a Bronco.

  • I don't have any suggestions. I will just say that this is the coolest mid-week match-up question that we've had in a while. Kudos for that.

  • Am I the only one who was reminded of the "Little Mule" from Romancing the Stone?

  • This Bronco would be just fine for NORRA. I've raced the Mexican 1000 5 times (in an early Bronco) and it's a blast!! If you can go up to $30k, I'd recommend my buddy Rory Ward's Dirtrix buggy. Beautifully prepped and ready to race! The bottom line is that people race nearly EVERYTHING in NORRA.

  • I was thinking Baja Bug too. Here's one I found.
