MY RIDE- Dave Richardson: 1987 Ford Bronco II
In 1992, Dave Richardson was a UVA undergraduate looking for a vehicle that would allow him to cart belongings into the hinterlands for pleasure or for work. Fifteen years later, he's still a student– and he still drives his '87 Ford Bronco to conduct fieldwork for his studies as a graduate student in ecology and forestry.
When he purchased the truck, it had less than 50,000 miles; now it has 185,000. But he's nowhere near ready to trade it in.
"It runs really well," says Richardson, explaining that he's taken it across some pretty rough terrain.
"I forded a couple of creeks I shouldn't have," he laughs, "but I was able to get out, no problem."
