It all Started on binder bulletin with Bill T !
Whatever happened to him?
Retirement I believe ? B. Thebert
He mostly dropped out of the scene after he moved back East.
Yep. When I first started pricing them in the late 80s a really nice early Bronco was already $1500-2000 more than a similar Scout II.
I got into Scouts because early Broncos have very little cargo room with the back seat in place.
Scouts may be a bargain on the original purchase price but not on the cost of rebuilding. I'd bet we are double the cost of sheet metal and parts to a comparable bronco!
The extra rust is free tho...
I would say we all owe Bill T a big Thank You!---along with Bill Hamilton and some others on here.
I can order a brand new early Bronco frame!!! Hahahaha!
Galvanized option as well. Too funny.
I like everything being a challenge I suppose! Plus the IH's/Scouts are much better looking!!!
Then top it off with a new cab from Taiwan!
All this talk about bill thebert and the pre internet days causes me to chuckle. Before the internet, I felt like I was on an island. We had dads1210, and my scout, and we knew one other guy with a few. He was a good friend of ours and we were it. People at the parts counter would look at us funny. People in the parking lot would look at us funny, kids at school... I remember old business cards on the pegboard in the garage. Anything scout when they were mountain view ca, phil Coonrod, and his card is exactly the same today as it was 25 years ago. Lol! Super scout And light line of Louisiana.
They were our lifeline. Then when the original binderbulletin came out in paper form, our buddy subscribed, and then I found the forum on the web, the binder bunch, and it was amazing!! I was terrified to post on the old bb, being such a rookie among those guys was very intimidating. Plus the old thread layout made it hard for me to follow. And now the world has gotten so much smaller. Its Crazy to think about.
You know it !
Most definitely and to Bruce for this site happening as well. Thanks guys !
Sounds all too familiar.
The silent ridicule, the dispare, the nagging feeling of exclusion and the questioning of ones sanity once the parts hoarding started in order to avoid the tension and stress of the parts store guy... All of it still causes flashbacks over badly needed parts that couldn't be located combined with nightmares of finally finding those parts.......(Physco sound effect)...... at scoutparts.com. ........LOL.....
Lol! Hilarious. You know what I'm talkin' about!
