I became a Monster Truck fan in 1986, but it's not what it once was. It used to be real racing...nowadays, you know what will happen before you even turn it on. Grave Digger will either win, flip, or both, and if Grave Digger doesn't win, Tom Meents will.
I've actually been to Monster Truck events several times and met quite a few of the big names, like Dennis Anderson, Tom Meents, Lyle Hancock, lots more.
When Hot Wheels started the new line, still going, in the early 2000s, I got most of the real trucks, but I stopped when they switched to the large, out of scale tires. That was also about when I got fed up with the current state of the sport, too.
I do have a lot more...of the early stuff. Just need to locate it.
