    Re: The Story of the Grave Digger Monster Truck

    I thought Grave Digger was based on 1950 Chevy Panel?

      Re: The Story of the Grave Digger Monster Truck

      The Bleacher Report article states the Grave Digger is "a black 1950 Chevrolet Panel Truck".

      It goes on to say further in the article "Soon, that old truck gave way to a new vehicle, an old Ford Panel Wagon that was painted silver and powder blue".

      And even later ... "Following the 1988 racing season, Anderson decided that his truck would not get the job done and built a new one. It was lower to the ground, wider and more powerful. Plus, he decided to go with the Chevy Panel Van instead of the Ford".

        That's about like saying a John Force Racing funny car is "based" on a Mustang . . . .

        It looks like a cartoonish fiberglass body, festooned with a bunch of plastic skeletons, sitting on a big network of tubing and a mid-mounted aftermarket mountain motor.

        It has as much in common with a real "1950 Chevy Panel" as a Saturn 5 had in common with an Estes model rocket. (http://www.estesrockets.com/store/rockets.html)

          Sorry, but if you show someone a picture of Grave Digger, they can name the make, model, and probably get pretty damn close with the year. A lot different than a funny car, nascar.

                I tried that . . . and all I got were giggles, eye rolls, and comments like "that's sure a funny looking tractor." Apparently I'm not around enough "Monster Jam" mavens. :o

                  I saw the "Grave Digger" here in Barcelona about six weeks ago.
                  At least one of them.
