Regardless of how many hours you spent watching the real-life O.J. Simpson courtroom drama unfold on live television, almost everyone remembers the surreal low-speed chase Simpson and Al Cowlings gave police in a white Ford Bronco down LA's freeways. And now, the very vehicle that captivated the world for hours all those years ago has been tracked down by reporters at CBS's "Inside Edition."
While an in-depth report by USA Today in 2014 detailed the Bronco's fate after the chase and its eventual sale to the so-called "porn king," Michael Pulwer, the new report claims the whereabouts of the storied SUV have "remained a mystery" over the years. As the paper reported at the time, the Bronco is known to have made two public appearances in 2012. But apparently, it hasn't been seen much since then... at least, until the "Inside Edition" report airs Tuesday night.
In a teaser for the report, the program's Jim Moret said the vehicle has been kept in pristine condition over the years and, interestingly, promised to reveal the current owner of the vehicle. The owner claims he purchased the Bronco as an investment, saying, "It's iconic. It's part of history," and that he's received offers from people looking to purchase it from him. With that said, it's no wonder he's coming forward, considering the fresh attention to the story via FX's highly anticipated dramatic remake of the sensational and controversial murder trial, "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson."
Check out "Inside Edition" on Tuesday to see exactly where this beast's been hiding.
