The video Crushers show 2 complete monster truck show and the last 20 minutes show mud race. The PA Monster is on the first MT show so if you look on Youtube, I'm pretty sure that it should be on the 1st segment

You know, that truck was sold to a promotor in Japan- from what the most consistent story told. Anyone have any record of having heard of it over there?

PA Mountain Monster was actually on a few shows in addition to the Crushers video. It was also at televised events '88 TNT Charleston WV, '88 HART Allentown PA, '88 HART Bloomsburg PA are all I've seen.

This is true. Rarig told me this last wed. when I was at his place. He said he sold it for 40,000 while he was over there.

mountain monster did a show in pueto rico in 1987 becoming the 1987 world champ.dennis anderson digger 1, porter in crusher 1,mopar magic,casper,barnyard beast,thunderbeast,mudman(before kid owned it), were all there, mountain monster vs carolina crusher in the final, both trucks broke a wheel and stopped short, but mountain monster was further, so he won a huge trophy.....i have a newspaper article about it, and used to have a vhs of it....dennis anderson was amazing with his digger 1, and total lack of fear.

I've brought the VHS on ebay in 2003 or 2004 in perfect shape. I only seen this tape 1 time on ebay and I brought a lot of MT VHS tape between 2002 and 2005. It's a great piece. No music - No commentator - only MT engines and crowd sounds...really love this tape.

No problem. I have a Panasonic VHS/DVD combo recorder. Can make a great DVD copy. I search for old school MT video like any TV series like TNT you had at the US television between 85-95. So if you have this kind of stuff, we can make an exchange. I have in my collection practically all VHS and DVD video that were on market since 80's debut (?100 title) but I don't have your TV MT series.

I have that issue, too. I showed it to Shawn Hunsicker and he got so excited, he almost knocked the window out of my car in shock. I also took models down to Bloomsburg that riled him up well. Cool magazine pic. I do know that as of a few years ago, a family friend who was stationed there said the monsters that were near him, Mountain Monster one of them; were in perfect hybernation in a former furniture warehouse that is climate controlled. He volunteered as much as he could and did they maintain them well!!!!! Always polishing, touching up chips and scratches, rebuilding parts, etc. They were all perfect. Sadly, two weeks before his move back to America, his house burned to the ground, so no pics.
