King Kong was one of the original monster trucks, possibly the first. This photo of King Kong is pretty rare. Do you have any vintage photos of King Kong?

Do You Remember This Bronco Monster Truck?

Do you remember this Bronco monster truck? Can you imagine how badly the ride was? An early Ford Bronco with old school suspension bounces a lot, but I cannot imagine badly this monster truck bounced all over the place! Still, it is an awesome old school monster truck!

Here is a shot with Bigfoot 1 playing in the Michigan sand dunes. I guess it is in the early 80’s. Anyone have any information?

Storm Warning Monster Truck Photos & Information

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.

Have You Ever Heard Of The Star Monster Truck?

I recently came across this photo of the Star Monster, which I have never heard of. How about you? Have you ever heard of the Star Monster truck? Does anyone have more photos? This photo screams 80’s monster truck!

Playin For Keeps Monster Truck

Do you have information about the Playin For Keeps monster truck? I have heard the name before, but cannot remember who owned it or when it was run. Do you have more photos?

Instigator Monster Truck

Check out this old photo of the Instigator monster truck. I love the coil springs in addition to the leaf spring suspension. Due to the steel body, suspension design and centre mount seat and rollcage design, I am guessing that this photo is from the early 90’s. What do you think? Do you have more photos of the Instigator monster truck?

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.

Spare Time Ford Ranger Monster Truck Found!

Last week we posted an article asking where the Spare Time Ford Ranger monster truck went to. We found our answer in this thread on Monster Mayhem. The truck, along with a bunch of other vintage monster trucks are all sitting outside of the Madrid Restaurant in Velle de Quebec. It is sad to see them rusting away…they deserve to be restored and lovingly cared for as they are a piece of history. However, it sounds like the owner has no interest in restoring or selling them.

Vintage Bearfoot & Lil’ Bearfoot Monster Truck Video

Here is an interesting old video of Bearfoot and Lil’ Bearfoot doing some classic crushing. It is so weird to watch these guys crush cars and think that I was in absolute awe of them when I was a kid. Now the video is boring…
