"i'm gonna have to interrupt this call. i understand we have live picture in los angeles.""i think i just saw o.j. simpson on the 5 freeway. he's headed north.""police believe oj simpson is in that car.""the authorities were trying to phone the bronco." june 17, 1994...95 million americans watched live television as o-j simpson became the most famous fugitive in america.the former heisman trophy winner was supposed to surrender to police in connection with the murders of his ex-wife and her friend ron goldman."this is ac. i have oj in my car." instead, o-j was huddled in the backseat of his friend's a-c cowling's ford bronco."you gotta tell police to back off. he's still alive but he's got a gun to his head.""i just want to be with nicole.""you don't need to be with nicole.
you need to be with your family and with your kids." "please toss the gun. juice, just toss it."millions were glued to their t-v screens -- intensely following the 1993, two-door, white ford bronco leading police on a low-speed car chase across southern los angeles.nearly two hours and 60 miles later, the bronco stops at simpson's brentwood home - where both men surrendered.we all know what happened after that..."we the jury of the above and entitle action find the defendant orenthol j. simpson not guilty for the crime of murder."but what about the bronco -- one element of fascination during 'the trial of the century'? espn reports that at some point before the murder trial began, cowlings had agreed to sell the suv for 75-grand to an l.a. tour company.but he pulled the deal when he learned the company, then called "grave line tour," would re-enact the car chase, then take people to nicole simpson's grave.a couple of years later, cowlings sold the bronco for 75-thousand dollars to simpson's former agent, mike gilbert and two other people.for the next 17 years, the most famous truck in
america...sat parked in space 144 in a los angeles condo...not moving an inch, according to espn.in 2012, a man with the luxor hotel in las vegas came looking for the famed bronco...to put it on display under...the bright lights of sin city...the bronco sat outside the luxor hotel to promote the casino's brand new sports memorabilia exhibit.but espn reports the deal soured because the bronco was supposed to be displayed inside, not under the harsh desert sun.gilbert took the car back, stored it in a condo garage in central california- where it was hidden from the public for several more years. in june of 2016, gilbert and his associates agreed to loan the bronco to alcatraz east crime museum in pigeon forge, tennessee. since then, hundreds of thousands of tourists have been able to see for themselves, the famed white ford bronco.oh and something else... museum curators found these combs still in the glove compartment. they say they belong to cowlings.and these items were in the bronco during the wild car chase in the summer of 1994.
