no jeep guy...american ride was saying...what if they had a series of match type races.....mongoose vs. snake bite....much like tom "the mongoose" mcewen vs. don "the snake" prudome had in the 60's-70's for the nhra
The truck looks great. I suppose promotors would prefer to have a name like BIGFOOT present that everyone recognizes rather than something like Snake Bite that probaby doesn't provide near the drawing power, despite being from the Bigfoot organization. I image most common folk don't know that and thus, promotors probably say, "we're gonna want the "Bigfoot" name."
I believe the vhs tape was one of those compilation tapes with no talking just constant action played with a rock and roll audio track. I think it was a ushra tape. This tape would have to be at least 15 to 18 years old. WOW! Stop the press! It just hit me! I believe the name of the tape was shake, battle and roll. Can anyone else verify that?
Thank you for posting opinion's as some of you got it and some did not! I myself think its a natural fit as i worked in the drag racing circuit anouncing with Bret Kempner at Great Lakes Dragway. We both thought it would work in monster trucks to create a classic battle of the snake vs. the mongoose! Evan Mark Watrose will back up the statement that Bob Chandler has tried to buy the Mongoose name from Mark,of course with Mark saying NO! For some of you that do not know of Mark Watrose and the Mongoose monster truck they are a top notch team with kick butt equipment everytime they hit the track. Mark has owned and operated the Michigan Off-Road Center in Lansing,MI. for the past thirty years. Mark has drove for years and now his son Brian 17 years old is taking some seat time driving the Mongoose monster truck. This past summer Brian took the wheel of the Mongoose truck and gave the GET-ER-DONE monster truck a run for the money at the Door County Fair show in Sturgeon Bay,WI. Besides liking the Mongoose truck i have always loved the Snake Bite truck from Big Foot 4x4!
Thanks guys enjoy and post some more opinions please!
