1987 Monster Truck Flashback

I'm no expert on Monster Trucks, but I'd say 1987 might have been a peak year for that genre of racertainment. I consider Monster Truck rally as the automotive equivalent of WWF, and as a 7-year old I think I held Big Foot and Hulk Hogan in equally high esteem.  You gotta love what passes for a "course" here, and that Grave Digger has to do a 3 point turn to get around the track. Whether you think they're awesome, or just awesomely bad, let's take a trip down memory lane! Best part are the driver interviews. Why has Danny McBride not made a Monster truck movie yet??

So, let me be sure I've got it right: This was a Golden Age of some kind? From the two previous comments, it appears that you've expanded your demographic.
