Anyone have old pictures of monster trucks?

Hey guys, I tried this awhile back on the general discussion board, but does anyone have any vintage monster truck pics from the late 70's or eighties? Heck even if you live close to one that sits outside somewhere rotting away, it's all cool to me. I grew up in that era and still love seeing the older ones with the real metal bodies. back when cutting up a '67 fastback mustang or 1972 Chevy El Camino wasn't seen as a bad thing. Thanks to Dooley, Mudder, and a few others that showed pics before. I know about the websites out there that have endless photos, but wondering if any of us 4x4 lovers had any to share. Thanks guys, Trevor

Re: Anyone have old pictures of monster trucks?

I think the monster truck scene needs to go back to the vintage. I just think most of the new ones look so incredibly stupid. Just isn't anything as cool as the original Big Foot era trucks!

Re: Anyone have old pictures of monster trucks?

I am not one to post pictures of anything but Chevys here because that is what I am. I have one shot of Bigfoot 1 from here in town years ago. I also had the honor of sitting down with Bob Chandler for lunch one day, years later. I knew several of the owners back in the day when my brotherinlaw had his truck and the racing was just beginning.

Re: Anyone have old pictures of monster trucks?

When I met Bob Chandler his towing gear consisted of a 77 Suburban 4x4 with 17/40 Dick Cepeks pulling a homemade trailer with a tri-axle mobile home setup. I used to buy from his shop back in the 70's.

Re: Anyone have old pictures of monster trucks?

They did some pretty cool stuff back then to them. I think that is wghat sets these trucks apart from the new ones. Even if the newer trucks have more power, articulation, blah, blah, blah!

Re: Anyone have old pictures of monster trucks?

I knew the guy that owned and drove Maddog. The Blazer with the wing. They were just starting racing and had 180 degree turns so they made the rear brakes to were you could lock either side up (like a tractor) for sharp turns. It had a bascially stock 454 in it and a 400 turbo. One of my all time favorites Monsters. John then built the Wild Hair truck (rear engine) and then the Micro Machines truck. They sold the name to Wild Hair to a guy South of St Louis and came out with a truck name Ozark Viper. I think the Driver rolled it end over end the first time out.

Randy, I am glad you are sharing your experiences in the monster truck scene. The Breen Bros. always seemed like nice guys to meet.

Hey Randy, did you brother in law have a monster? or were you just saying when he had an older lifted truck?

Re: Anyone have old pictures of monster trucks?

He built the power wagon in the first pic. It was way too heavy for racing but was a really good car crusher.

I heard somewhere that the original Bigfoot had a Dana 20 transfercase. I had no idea they were that strong.

The first Bigfoot wasn't running 66's. I think they were probably 48's or so. Not sure about the TC.

Re: Anyone have old pictures of monster trucks?

I was 2 feet from Dan Runte the current big foot driver. I didn't figure out who he was until after he left, I was quite annoyed at myself.
