White Ford Bronco At MAP Pays Tribute To O.J. Simpson

Though it wasn’t exactly the type of media attention a large company necessarily seeks out, the infamous police chase involving former NFL star O.J. Simpson that took place in his friend’s 1993 Ford Bronco did wind up having a tremendous impact on that model, in general. In fact, many to this day still immediately think of that particular event when they see any kind of white Ford Bronco, regardless of generation, which is to be expected given the fact that 90+ million people watched that chase live – not to mention the ensuing trial that took place after Simpson was named as the prime suspect in the murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman. Simpson’s recent passing has since brought this particular topic back into the national discussion, and it also apparently prompted a bit of a tribute stemming from the factory that builds the Ford Bronco – the Michigan Assembly plant.

That’s funny

As we can see in this photo recently posted on Reddit, it appears that someone who works at MAP took the time to place a sign on the back of a white Ford Bronco that reads” RIP OJ,” and it doesn’t seem to be some photoshopped image, either. Given the fact that Simpson’s recent death conjured up its fair share of media attention – and jokes – this doesn’t come as a huge surprise, at least.

As for the 1993 Ford Bronco that participated in what is likely the world’s most famous – and easily one of the slowest – police chases in history, it’s still around and kicking, so to speak. That SUV is currently located at the Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, where it has been for many years, though as Ford Authority reported last week, it might also be sold very soon as well.

The famous Bronco is owned by Simpson’s former agent Michael Gilbert and two friends of the SUV’s original owner, former NFL player and Simpson’s best friend, Al Cowlings, who was driving the Bronco during the infamous chase. That group is thinking about selling it – particularly as we approach the 30-year anniversary of the chase – though they’re reportedly seeking a whopping $1.5 million for the Bronco.

    A sense of humour you say? I’m not sorry to say that I’m sick enough to appreciate that perspective.

    Trump sign on a bronco? That would make no sense. Now if someone would put a Trump sign on Stormy Danials I would agree. Or a sign on fence in park when TRUMP GASSED & SHOT RUBBER BULLETS AT HIS OWN CITIZENS. Stay classy bob😂
