I do photography for a classic car dealership and the most recent shoot I did was for a mid-90s Ford Bronco. I posted a picture of it on FB and someone made a joke to the effect of that he would never be able to see a Bronco without thinking of O.J. Simpson. I replied by saying that I can’t think of any other vehicle that has the same kind of effect on people.
It’s not like the Ford Pinto or the Edsel - its notoriety doesn’t come from any problems with the vehicle - it comes solely from having been highly publicized as part of a notorious and newsworthy incident.
Does any other such vehicle exist? Where, when you hear its name, you associate it only with one particular thing?
I’m excluding cars like the DeLorean or the Gran Torino which became part of pop culture because of their deliberate placement in a movie or show.
