    Virginia Beach Beast was indeed the first Monster Tank, But we have #2. Which I'm sure most of you guys know that this is the one that flipped after that backwards hit, as well as the tank that was in a collision with Gator.

    There's a couple of key features I look for in old footage/photos of the Beast. #1 was an earlier model of Blazer, it has the full lift off top. #2 was a 78-79 and has the shorter lift off that leaves the roof of the truck intact. It also has a different grill, and #1 Is still currently owned by Willie Townes...and sits in Corvette Red. (rusty)

    BTW those flares will be my death...LOL!

    The Thunder Chicken is no longer sitting abandoned. It is now being rebuilt. I spoke with the guy today thats rebuilding it for Rarig.
    Checkout www.adamsoffroadperformance.com for all your mudtruck and monstertruck axle and suspension needs. And if we don't have it we can make it.
