After jumpstarting a billion-dollar enthusiast segment, the Bigfoot truck - one of the most iconic trucks in history - returned to SEMA to celebrate its 35th anniversary.

Adorned in the traditional no. 1 and those gargantuan 66-inch terra tires, Bob Chandler’s Bigfoot Truck returned to the very same auto show it first attended back in 1977. To celebrate the occasion, the original No.1 was joinged by a modern tube-framed Bigfoot truck that was dressed in a commemorative no. 1 body.

As you probably know by now, Monster Trucks became a cultural icon over the years, having appeared in a number of movies, spawning it’s very own competition, and has also made 25,000 appearances in over 20 countries since it was created in 1974.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Cool! 66 inch is like 5feet tall or more.

It actually has been a while since I have seen some show wherein there where big monster trucks. I guess people’s interests have shifted or it’s just not the season for monster truck races just yet. Seeing them on display is one thing, seeing them race and jump high in the air is another.
