Without this site, it would be very hard to reach out to the public and people that love Monster Trucking in general. Thank you also for all the friends I...

    Haha I love it, All the ol skoolers were great people and they learned from each other. Sure they had to compete but at the end of the day having a cold one, you should have heard their discussions about bringing the sport to a newer level. They all helped each other, like a bunch of brothers.

    Thanks for the post ridge runner, a lot of ol skoolers are losing interest and we have done everything we can to bring the spark back. It sure is sad to see where monster trucking began go by the wayside. If it wasn't for a guy like Bob Chandler, that was able to keep the sport alive, I guess we...

    Southern Sunshine had a very close call today of losing it all. A car veered off the highway and was headed right for her door and the only thing that stopped it was a blue pole. If the pole wasn't there, the car would have been right in her face. Mart is still looking out for her. God is good!

    Yeah Mike, It is very tough to do but there are choices in life we cannot do anything about. I would love to keep them forever, but it can't happen. If most people knew the circumstances, I think they may understand. I hope Mart is proud that we made this decision for him because they were built...

    Cajun King will begin it's new journey in life on Saturday. I am excited and sad, because I can't wait to see what the future holds for him. The new owners are very excited about having him around and I can't wait to visit. However, it may take awhile because we are so busy right now. Glenn

    Cajun King will soon travel to its new owner. We are not selling because of health or financial reasons, we don't have a house for it. We will probably tire down soon and get it ready soon. We are waiting for weather to clear so they can make a good trip.

    I was promised twice by the new owner that it will never change and only go about 300 yards to it's destination at shows. I would not let go of one of our prized trucks unless I knew the owner and what are their intentions.
