How Did Everyone Wind Up Getting Into Broncos?

It sat in my bro-in-laws driveway for over a year with him half heartedly trying to sell it.
Well, one fine day in May, mine and the wifes only car (85 buick riviera) decided it didn't want to live any longer and committed sepaku in the driveway as it was being backed out
The passenger side ball joint & lower A arm got in an argument ending in a nasty divorce, with their only child, the cv shaft, being ripped violently form its' now broken home, the transmission.
Anyways, I had been talking to the bro-in-law for a few months about buying the Bronco from him and the day that the car met the asphalt for the second time... went ahead and got serious on it and picked it up after getting it running again and new tires to replace the worst two, the rears.
Since then.. I want to get another bronco for the wife.. but she is insisting on something small. (maybe I can use it as a tire chock when she isn't looking )
Before then, I had always admired big broncos and other big trucks, but never had the opportunity to get or even think of getting one.

The 88 I picked up for a couple hundred bucks from a buddy of mine that has a wrecker service. It's always helpful to have a few contacts in the salvage/wrecking business when you restore old vehicles.

I love being able to drive a basically stock vehicle that's big enough to see past cars at stop signs, can handle a great deal of abuse, can go offroad like it's nothing, and still has a lower turning radius than most cars.
I tried to drive a Lincon Navigator, I could barely get that thing out of the parking space. I was so used to the Bronco that I actually had to do a 3 point exit from the space. I don't see how people drive those things.
