OJ Simpson's Infamous Highway Chase Bronco Could Fetch $500K On 'Pawn Stars'

Simpson's former sports agent, Mike Gilbert, has kept the Bronco locked up since the 1994 slow-speed chase in Los Angeles.

According to USA Today, it will be featured on an August 14 episode of "Pawn Stars", the Las Vegas based reality TV show.

"There were some people that were going to sell the Bronco to a company. and they were going to go up and down the freeway, go by the murder site, and I just thought that'd be classless", Gilbert tells Rick Harrison, who co-owns World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop featured on the show.

"It's in unbelievable shape", pawn shop owner Rick Harrison said, the Post reported. 'It's a one of a kind'. Al Cowlings, who was Simpson' s friend and former teammate in University of Southern California. Simpson was later found not guilty in the 1995 murder trial.

Simpson was sitting in the backseat during the chase. Gilbert bought the vehicle from Cowlings for $75,000.

Juenemann has never attempted a kick for the Golden Gophers, but could be a big part of the team's plans this fall. Juenemann hasn't seen any game action in his four years with the program.

The vehicle made a brief appearance at a Las Vegas casino display in 2003 before being locked back up.

TMZ reported last month that someone offered Gilbert $250,000 for the Bronco, but he declined. "I never glorify gangsters or murderers on the show ... and I think O.J.is a douchebag ... who did some really bad things".

That said, Mr. Harrison added, there's something just kinda creepy about owning an artifact of the crime of the century.

Simpson was the subject of a 30 for 30 documentary and an FX mini series a year ago, and he was granted parole on an armed robbery case in Nevada last month.
