    Ace Ventura 2 Monster Truck


    Members do not see advertisements
    Hey guys, I was just checking out You Tube and came across the scene from Ace Ventura 2. In the comment section gmtgmt posted that this is the old Southern Storm truck. I was just wondering what some other peoples take on this truck is? To me it looks like Push N Stomp and I had heard that it was. I was told the planetaries from Southern Star ended up on this truck however. Anyone know what happend to this truck after the movie?

    GMTGMT, not to doubt you but I am gonna think out loud here. The chassis of Push N Stomp doesn't look the same as Southern Storm or Star. Also The S-10 ext cab wheelbase is a bit longer then a Ranger wheelbase. They would have had to have done alot of work to rebody the truck as a Ranger and undo all that work to rebody it again as an S-10 and re-do the work yet again to shorten it up to be put back under the Ranger which is now Southern Star. It would be alot of work to do this. Ya know what I sayin? This was from a email that Blade sent me.

    "I will get you some pictures this week .yes the truck still has the flipup body,as for the planataries robbie sold them to the man who owns the old push and stomp truck.Thats the truck in the Ace venture when nature calls movie,by the way robbie did all the driving of that truck in the movie. If you have any other questions feel free to ask."

    I am thinking that Push N Stomp is still out there somewhere.

    Southern Storm and Southern Star is the same truck, Robbie made some changes on the storm truck back in about 1990 then he changed the name to star. The old push and stomp truck is a whole different truck.
