Ford Motor hasn't made a Bronco for ten years, but the ground-breaking (sorry, couldn't resist) SUV still has a loyal following, with a nationwide network of Bronco owners' clubs ramping up birthday celebrations for Ford's sport-ute.

One of the Bronco's high-profile fans is none other than legendary NFL star OJ Simpson rocker Ted Nugent (above). The Nuge has been a Bronco owner since 1971, and one of his vintage examples will be on display at several 40th anniversary celebrations.

Some owners of early Broncos take their off-roading pretty seriously, as you'll see from the pictures after the jump!
