    Pezo old schooler


    Members do not see advertisements
    For the old school fans out there, you'll be pleased to know that the Lone Eagle/Predator 1 chassis of Allen Pezo is still in use as a ride truck in Wildwood, NJ. I checked out the ride truck they were running and noticed the chassis, although black instead of yellow, (and there were spots of yellow paint showing through if you look closely) still had the same set up as it did as Predator. The truck which those who might remember was rebodied by John Seasock and Andy Slifko from Chevy to Ford and renamed Sudden Impact ride truck was renamed The Sheriff. I'd love to see Pezo buy it back and put the Predator or Lone Eagle body back on it. If you've seen how the truck looks now and watch the video Secrets of Monster Trucks and watch the Predator trucks you'll see the match. I was in Wildwood for my 9-year-old's soccer tournement on the beach. Her team won two out of three.
    It is nice to see the truck chassis intact.

    Monster truck racing is dangerous, unpredictable, difficult, expensive and exclusive. And if these attributes don't make it a real motorsport, then there are no real motorsports.

    I thought Pezo was in the process of restoring the first Predator truck and really close to having it completed?? If this is the yellow chassised Predator chassis wasn't that Predator 2? The original that Pezo has was the original Lone Eagle chassis which was rebodied as the first Predator. Either way it is nice to see that this chassis is still intact and still being used.

    When I talked to Allen at RPM he said he had bought back his first Predator chassis. That had also been his first Lone Eagle. He claimed that that Predator truck was almost done. The original Lone Eagle body is now his daily driver. He said he'd send some pictures but.... Nice to see this chassis is still in good shape. Pretty sure this is Predator 2.It doesn't look like it changed much. Did you go for a ride Adam?? Steve

    No, I didn't get a chance to ride; we had a soccer tournament that weekend and the kids didn't seem as interested in a monster truck ride as they did the water park since it was very warm for me/very hot for them so the ride truck was nixed. We're going back next August, though.
