On July 9, 2020, Ford will unveil its '2021 Ford Bronco' --- the first of its namesake since June 12, 1996, when the last Bronco rolled off the Michigan assembly line.

July 9th also happens to be the 73rd birthday of Orenthal James Simpson.

In case you don't remember -- Mr. Simpson was a passenger in a 1993 Ford Bronco on June 17, 1994, in Los Angeles, in a low-speed chase watched by 95 million people as he was -- at the time -- a 'person of interest' in the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

Coincidence? The unveiling was originally supposed to happen in April, but Coronavirus put the Bronco on hold. But, Ford could have picked a different date.
