    I'll try to snap a picture for you on my way home from work. I drive by the home of Bigfoot at least 10 times a week.

    I agree, Bigfoot 1 has always been my favorite. Just a great looking truck!
    I seem to recall them having a couple dual tire trucks also, one with the smaller tires and one with the huge tires.

    Not into monster trucks, but, Bigfoot 1 was always the best looking. IMO
    They were? maybe still are, out of Missouri. I saw #1 a couple times in person
    when I was in my late teens.

    In person, that truck is INSANE! flipping huge! I'm 6'3" and was scratching my head as to how you got in the damn thing without a ladder :laugh2: :laugh2:

    I love monster trucks, Bigfoot was always one of my favourites, still have a few VHS's of it's rounds. There was one time we were meant to go see the trucks and Bigfoot, we lost a tire and didn't end up going :(
