Do you remember this Ford Truck tv commercial from 1985? What do you think? Is Ford the best truck? Was the Dodge truck in neutral or was it using its own power up the rock hill?
Last month, we posted an article asking for information on the Storm Warning monster truck. Ron Bulson, owner and builder of Storm Warning, contacted us with some information and photos of the truck in its prime.
This is my second truck. The first was called Instigator a 1979 Ford Bronco. We started building Storm Warning in 1991. I ran the truck until 1996. I sold it to John Seasock in 1996 an he renamed it Sudden Impact. I mostly ran on the east coast an Canada. The truck was a tubular frame with extra long leaf springs with four shocks on each side. Rockwell 106 axles with 20 ton planetary knuckles with disc brakes. Front and rear steer, Goodyear 66 inch tires. The engine was a 1971 429 cobra jet bored and stroked to a 514. Tunnel ram with two predator carburetors back by a C6 transmission to a profab transfer case. A 1992 fiberglass body. The truck worked real well. The truck landed with no bounce and was quick because of it light weight. I’ll get some more picture to you soon.
