Rick Mears: Off Road Racer Turns Indy 500 Winner

Did you know that 4 time Indy 500 winner Rick Mears started his career as an off road racer? Mears, who also holds the record of 6 Indy 500 pole position starts, raced buggies with his off road racing star brother Roger Mears. There was a few other rides, such as the Parnelli Jones Chevrolet pictured above, but most fans remember the Mears brothers battling it out at Riverside Raceway.

Do You Remember The Fall Guy Truck?

>Probably a better question is who does not remember the Fall Guy? A lifted GMC truck jumping over fences, ponds and who knows what else. I mean really, whas there any other shows in the 80′s that had better action than the Fall Guy, Dukes Of Hazzard and the A Team? For those that are too young to enjoy the memories, the show was centered around Colt Seavers (Lee Majors), who is a hollywood stunt man that takes on bounty hunter side jobs. Colt Seavers…what an awesome action hero name! “Dog” has nothing on this guy! His cousin and fall guy in training Howie Munson and stunt lady Jody Banks (Heather Thomas) accompanied Colt in his venture to capture criminals. The show ran from 1981-1986.

Southern Sunshine Monster Truck Rises Again

After been stored for 15 years, Southern Sunshine will be shining again! A lifetime dream was cut short when Mart Williams, age 26, died of an accidental drowning in Prien Lake on Thursday, June 5, 1986. Mart’s dream was most vividly expressed in “Southern Sunshine”, a four-wheel drive Chevy Monster Truck, which he built, operated and displayed to thousands of truck fans throughout the country. Ironically, on the day of Mart’s death, he received a letter from New York City recognizing “Southern Sunshine” as one of the top ten Monster Trucks in the world. But, the meaning of “Southern Sunshine” is more than just the truck that Mart built. It stands for Mart’s devotion to bringing happiness to others through recreation. Mart constantly reminded us of the need to balance our lives with a proper mix of work and recreation.

Vintage Bearfoot & Lil’ Bearfoot Monster Truck Video
