    You’re going to have to do better with your English because it makes almost no sense at the moment. Are you asking why Indonesians don’t drive the cars in the photos? These cars are 40+ years old… few people anywhere are still driving these things, let alone in Indonesia. Or are you asking why people 40 years ago didn’t drive them in Indonesia?

    why do Indonesian people rarely have cars like in this picture, but if in a very unique view of all and most of Indonesian people that chose the sports car, and if I had the money wanted to buy a product such as a car picture that you share, thanks for the info love about about cars

    Paul’s right – we never got that model Bronco here in Australia. We got the Bronco between 1981-1987 (imported from the US but fitted with local engines), but it was very expensive and only sold in limited numbers. I agree that the Bronco was hideous looking until it became based on the F-Series trucks in the 80s!

      Hey David, Paul,
      The picture of the Bronco was taken during a trial of the model by Wheels Magazine in New South Wales in 1976 and you can see it has a NSW licence plate, so it looks like it did come to Australia albeit potentially in very small numbers? Or maybe only in some States in the manner of Geely nowadays?

    I remember the Bronco 4×4… it was the kind of vehicle taht lasted forever. My uncle had one in Mozambique that turned 300.000 km with no problems and over 100 journeys to South Africa, Namibia, Suaziland, Tanzania, Botswana, Rhodesia… A true 4×4!!!

    Whats the 76 Bronco doing there? We never saw that piece of ugliness here. I have seen one in the metal and, what were they thinking?

    Thank you very much for this fantastic article Matt!! Very good times to remember with happyness, tenderness and nostalgia… I remember all these cars… make part of my childhood. All of them were sold in Mozambique and South Africa, places were I lived when I was a child. Even the Ford Falcon was sold there as well as Holden Monaro/Torana/Kingswood and Gemini called there Isuzu Gemini or Bellet II.
