Famous O.J. Simpson Bronco could be yours for $500,000
A man who owns the infamous white Ford Bronco used in the O.J. Simpson car chase wants to flog it on TV show 'Pawn Stars' for $500,000.
Mike Gilbert is Simpson's former agent and acquired the vehicle after the chase in 1994 that saw the former NFL star hide in the back of the car as his friend Al Cowlings, who also owned the car, drove down the 405 highway in Los Angeles being chased by police.
There were two Broncos, one owned by Simpson and one owned by Cowlings. Although Simpson's own one was destroyed many years ago, this is the most famous having actually been the one everyone saw the world over during the dramatic police chase.
Now, 23 years later, Gilbert has appeared with the car on the reality TV series Pawn Stars, hoping to sell it for half a million dollars, claiming he has turned down an offer for this amount already. He also claims the money is for his children.
The show's presenter Rick Harrison spoke to American auto magazine Road and Track. He said: "I never glorify gangsters or murderers on the show, and I think OJ is a douchebag who did some really bad things.
"I'm a dad with six kids and I'm trying to teach each of them a little bit of morality. But I felt it would be good for the show and I figured I'd give it a shot."
