1977 Ford Bronco - The Lawman's Horse

Posted in Project Vehicles on January 1, 2005

Jerry Jones was looking all over Louisiana for an early Bronco when he found the pile you see here in Mississippi. Actually, what you see here is what he ended up with after he put a fair amount of time and money into the pile that he started with, and what he ended up with is very clean. This is an odd story because we learned it all secondhand from Jerry's friend Mark Rainwater who was driving this yellow '77 on our recent trail ride on Davis Island. You see, Jerry is the District Attorney of the 4th Judicial District of Louisiana, and that means he's so busy that he can't always get away to go wheelin' with his pals. We figured that with such a clean Bronco, and the fact that he couldn't go on the run, the least we could do for him was get a few shots of his horse in our magazine. Plus, if we ever get in any trouble with Louisiana's finest, it's always good to have the DA on our side.
