I figured since this is an old school thread I should add some of my old pics my dad took back in the early 90s here in Iowa at shows.

Heres a couple just to start off.

My parents always said it was Dennis Anderson driving Digger at the Downs, and this out of all the pictures of Digger is my favorite just by the hand gesture.

Best pic Ive ever seen of that Kong truck, this had to be one of the last shows that the Danes did, my guess would be summer of 93, thats Digger 3 post rebuild, more likely it was Lyle Hancock driving it, and yes, the Dodge is a right after Hardees sponsership ended Terraduster.
was it an exhibition only or was there racing too?
do you remember who won?

I'm just getting to the racing photos, I was only 3 at the time so i dont really remember who won the race. And yes this was I believe August or September of 93. This wasnt one of the last shows the Danes did, Awesome Kong was back the following year at Hawkeye Downs. I dont have any photos from '94 but I do have video my dad took.

WOW! Awesome shots. Really cool seeing ones of roadkill, witch doctor, that version of terraduster, and the danes awesome kong and punisher trucks.

But man, I never knew pablo ran both his original digger and just showin off at the same time. Heck, those may be the first shots we've seen on here of that digger in that form. MEGA cool, and MEGA awesome.

(sidenote: must admit the digger body looks a tick odd on the chassis....chassis seems too long for the body in truth.)

Yeah I remember the early 90's too. That's when grown men thought they could wear short shorts like that.

Man, I am glad that phase in life has passed. lol

Awesome pictures. I had never seen that Taurus hauler like that. Anyone have any other photos of that hauler? It's awesome to see the motorhomes in those shots. It's cool to see how they rocked the RV's in the early days.

using the gallery here is a good idea as your photobucket bandwidth has been exceeded.

The first set must have been on the same tour that I saw a few of the trucks at. I never had any pictures, but at one point I went to a show with the last incarnation of Mad Dog, some truck named Viper(don't think it was Ozark viper), the black Jersey outlaw, the yellow blue and red Awesome Aong, Punisher, the last Wild Hair marvin smith had (glass body), Grave Digger, and I want to think Taurus...all in Alexandria Louisiana. Boy I wish I had photo's of that event.

I believe Grave Digger won the 1993 show not 100% on that. I dont have video from 1993, but i got video from 1994 i'm gonna get that on youtube within the next week or so.

Those last two shots - the group shots are the best. They show a real transition in monster trucks from the last of the leaf sprung machines to the next generation racing trucks. Also, its rare to see all of those old TNT stars like Awesome Kong, Outlaw, Carolina Crusher, Taurus, Grave Digger, and No Problem coming together a one event.

Punisher over Grave Digger by far a nicer looking truck. Long live the Dane trucks.
