Talkin’ Proud: Buffalo Bills Tribute Explorer Is a Tailgating Dream

Buffalo Bills 2002 Ford Explorer Sports Trac

No matter how you feel about the Buffalo Bills, nabbing a 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac for $800 is like winning the Super Bowl! 

We have it on good authority (ahem, experience) that it isn’t always easy being a Buffalo Bills fan. But one thing that makes it easier are the Bills’ fans. If you don’t believe us, check out a Bills tailgating party. Buffalo Bills fans are a loyal, die-hard, eternally-optimistic bunch that definitely know how to turn it up. This Buffalo Bills-themed 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac would fit in perfectly at Ralph Wilson Stadium (no, we can’t bring ourselves to call it New Era Stadium). We can almost smell the wings, pizza logs, Sahlen’s hot dogs, and Labatt Blue.

We found this on the Buffalo Bills subreddit and thought it was pretty cool. What’s really amazing is that Redditor Sierra331 got the truck for only $800! That’s a steal for an Explorer still running and in good shape! And, considering this is Buffalo, there’s an impressive lack of rust. Sierra331 said that there is a little over 250,000 on the odometer, and it needs a little TLC, but nothing major.

“It’ll need new rotors for sure, rear brakes need work, maybe just new brake pads. The hood latch and cable need to be replaced. The paint job is peeling and shabby, needs to be stripped down to bare metal, re-primed and repainted using actual car paint instead of house paint. Before the priming and painting, it’ll need to have the rust buildup blasted and any panels and parts corroded to be replaced or repaired and patched.The driver’s door has a busted pin so it’s sitting slightly askew and the ‘door ajar’ light is stuck on. Some windows need their motors replaced. And the driver’s door also has a busted electric lock, it won’t respond to the key fob. So mostly just a bunch of small and cosmetic things.”

Now we realize that some of you may have some comments on the paint job…and on the Bills. But we think we can all agree that a 2002 Explorer Sport Trac for $800 is a solid touchdown. Sorry, we’ll see ourselves out.
