Really. They do things differently out west.
|A.C. drove O.J. around L.A. in this|
They do things differently out west.
When O.J. finally surrendered, the police found his passport, a change of underwear, and a fake mustache and beard in the car.
The car (California tags 3DHY503) was not his. It belonged to his buddy A.C. Cowlings, who sold it to a consortium of sports memorabilia exhibitors. Persons interested in seeing a car used in the commission of a crime have been able to gawk at the Bronco at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas. where it "appeared" along with the 1999 Women's World Cup trophy and Marcus Allen's 1981 Heisman trophy. Also, it was on display at the Brant Foundation Arts Center in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Simpson's agent, one Mike Gilbert, continues his work even as his client cools his heels at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada following his 2008 conviction in Nevada for robbery and kidnapping. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison and will be eligible for parole in October of this year.
You do the math.
And there are plans afoot to lend the escape vehicle to the Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Between the time of O.J.'s apprehension and the trial, there was a deal struck to sell the car to another entity. "But we found out that the company was going to rent the vehicle to a company in L.A. called Grave Line Tours, that visited famous graves," Gilbert told ESPN. "They were going to re-enact the chase with the Bronco and then take people to Nicole's grave. (emphasis mine.) The trial hadn't taken place yet, and we didn't want people thinking anyone associated with O.J. did this."
They really do things differently out there.
