            When these things would come to town they would bring them to the car dealerships and park them out front so people knew they were in town. I was a tech at one and got to stop 5 lanes of traffic one day for it to park a bit easier. I'll never forget the look of people faces when I walked out into traffic and one of these followed. It was a Grave digger btw at Spokane WA/Gus Johnson Ford about 15 years ago..

                  In some ways it resembles a Bugatti Chiron. Both1500hp mid engine beasts.

                      So glad they did grave digger. Dennis Anderson has been my hero since I was 3 years old. 25 years later and I'm still hoping to meet him.

                                      Seen the truck up close on person in sweden a few times, even had the pleasure to meet the crew and drivers a few times.

                                          I remember being like 7 and waking up an hour early because some series with monster trucks and dirt rally racing was on (anyone know what ´show that was?) and sometimes I woke up at 6 am because in german TV they showed naked girls until like 6:30 on the same channel lol. Anyone I was a Grave digger fan even then. That was around 2000-2004 btw something like that

                                                  “Most iconic truck in the world”??? Maybe the second most... but being from Missouri I am biased of course. It’s a shame that Feld Entertainment threatened to bury Bob Chandler after he refused to sell to them, because the Bigfoot/Gravedigger feud was always fun to watch. That’s why you’ll never see Bigfoot in Monster Jam either.
