This truck blew its motor on East Matunuck Beach in RI in the 1980’s. That was the last of I heard of this truck

yes i do,
I was in denver then helping my cousin and his friend in the dry cleaning plants,
I got the may or june Issue of 4 wheel and off road,
godzilla was on the fron cover story,
I was looking for pics of the truck, and now I found it.
Godzilla was done tastefully in the aqua green, and chrome wheel’s with chrome lightbar on back, and tilt bed and hood.
with chrome sidepipe’s,
i think it was better looking than any of the truck’s out there outside of Awesome Kong with the Allison V-12 in the bed,

I actually helped Alvin with the hydrolics on that truck. Those were some fun days. Sadly Al SR has passed away.

Has any one seen where this truck has gone to? I am one of the three who bought it off of the Thurber’s in 2005. I’d like to find it again

Thanks for commenting Alvin. Maybe someone will see this that knows where it is. If you have any old photos you can share I would love to post them here on the site. Maybe that would help get more exposure and we can find where it is.
