    Hey, everyone!

    I run the Earthquake monster truck. It's the only truck still running with a factory steel body, factory frame and leaf springs. I'm trying to establish, first of all, that old school trucks can be safe, can be entertaining, and can sell tickets. So far, we're doing well with a few exhibitions and actually booked a few shows. Hopefully, the nostalgia movement keeps gaining steam. I'm looking forward to talking with everyone in here. We'll be at the H.O.F. induction banquet with the truck this weekend if anyone wants to come out and see us. While we have an old school truck, it has all new school safety under it.

    That is really cool. I also hope that this can become popular enough with everyone that more people are doing it too.

    There are at least six other trucks ready to perform right now. There are more, but some safety equipment needs to be added to appease the insurance companies. We even did a little exhibition at the Bigfoot open house this year.

    I also do a Youtube show called Old School Monster Life. It's a behind the scenes look at what it takes to run one of these trucks. The early episodes are pretty raw, but they're getting better as I go along.

    Welcome to the site. Truck looks awesome, glad to see them being preserved and still in action.

    Not much activity on here any more, but who knows, maybe Fakebook will go down in flames and we'll have a revival. :D

    Lol. You never know. I still frequent the FTE forum, so who knows, maybe this will come back. I'll post updates here and on FB. ....maybe even exclusive stuff here to force people to come over and look around every now and again.
