Model-car collectors have had plenty of Blue Oval plastic and die-cast vehicle choices over the years to help fill their personal displays – from all the Mustangs and Thunderbirds to the notable Fords and Mercury cars – even the Edsel and Pinto. Yes, there’ve even been trucks – from the early F-Series to the SVT F-150 Lighting and today’s Raptor. But have you often seen model versions of Ford’s Bronco? For avid Bronco enthusiast Randy Wickman, that’s all he looks for. Focusing a model collection on Ford’s iconic 4x4 SUV is quite understandable in Wickman’s case, as Randy is the driving force behind BONES (Bronco Owners of North East States), a group that he started to share his Ford 4x4 passion with other Bronco owners in his area of the country. Being that he’s spent his life in the dealership world, he’s been able to come across many collectible items and diecasts of Ford’s being sold over his more than 32 years of collecting. But as you might expect, Randy has a remarkable collection of mini-Broncos to share with us here. Check out Randy’s tabletop car show below, then consider sending us your own Tabletop Car Show with photos (or YouTube video), your name, hometown and a brief description of your collection to: ClubHub@Ford.com. We hope to hear from you soon!
“Hi, Ford Performance. I’m Randy Wickman of BONES (Bronco Owners of North East States). I recently read in your Fast News about Mike Correra's diecast collection and thought I would send you a few photos of my own collection from working at a dealership. Being an avid Bronco guy, what else is there to collect?
“I have been in the parts department at Townsend Ford Sales and Service (in Townsend, Massachusetts) for just over 32 years now. I pride myself on finding obsolete parts that nobody else can locate. My model collection gets more than a few raised eyebrows, as well as questions from anyone that sees it. Thanks for the consideration, and keep on doing these great stories!”
