PIGEON FORGE (WATE) – Alcatraz East Crime Museum recently took to their website to dispel any rumors involving the OJ Simpson chase Bronco that is displayed in the museum.
The rumor was that the infamous Bronco is up for sale and will be on the TV show Pawn Stars. It will be on Pawn Pawn Stars, but according to the museum, that was filmed prior to the Bronco being in their possession.
Alcatraz East said in a statement: “Alcatraz East does have the real chase Bronco on display. At this time no one is actively pursuing selling the Bronco, the Pawn Stars episode on the Bronco was filmed prior to being in the museum’s possession.”
The Pawn Stars episode that features the infamous Bronco aired on August 14.
“We are getting numerous calls and inquiries about the sale of the infamous white Bronco, but they are all just incorrect rumors,” states Janine Vaccarello, chief operating officer. “We’ve had the Bronco on display since opening, and we plan to have it on display for at least a few more years, if not longer. The museum is where it belongs.”
The museum says the vehicle was kept inside a garage between Las Vegas and California for years. Simpson’s former sports manager Mike Gilbert worked with the museum on preserving it.
