    Best looking truck of all time?


    Members do not see advertisements
    I figured I'd ask this question in this forum since modern-day trucks that are truly a work of art are the exception rather than the rule.

    What do you think the best looking monster of all time has ever been? Perhaps as a California native and a Chevy fan I am a little biased, but I personally have found essentially all of the trucks ever to come out of the Seth Doulton stable to be the most beautiful pieces of machinery I have ever seen. In particular, my favorite has to be the original am/pm Boss. Simple, bold paint scheme, one of the first trucks to use police lights on top, and the sleek, classic look of the '72 Chevy seal the deal for me. The Skoal Bandit, Hawaiian Punch, and Ecology Eliminator from Doulton's stable are worthy of a mention as well, but there's always been something about the Boss that has stood out from all the rest. Heck, even one of its drivers was a looker.

    On the other hand, we all know Seth Doulton wasn't the only one to produce awesome looking pieces of machinery. Aces High, Outlaw 35, Grave Digger, and the Virginia Giant all come to mind as well.

    What do other Mayhemers think? I want to hear people's opinions on what THEY think is the best looking monster ever built.
    No matter how stupid Mayhem gets, it's ALWAYS a source of entertainment, even if the entertainment is unintentional.

    I could post something witty here, but I decided against it. And now I have wasted your time by making you read this.

    Muscle Beach, by far.

    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.
