A bit of Grave Digger history. Anderson did not build the original digger. The owner of the original digger killed him self, and the truck sat in the parking lot of Currituck grain in Moyock, N.C. for many years. My pervious employer nearly bought it, but passed on it. Anderson bought it, and preformed exhibitions with it at local race tracks. I have met Dennis on several occasions, and know his crazy *** cousin Les very well; I use to work on his dump trucks. Les drove digger back in the late 80s or early 90s wile Dennis was unable to drive.

I didn't know that original truck was a ford bodied one, I like it

Always liked the intro with a crazy announcer belting out "Kill Devil Hill's, NC"

Thatís another thing that gripes my ***. The shop and Dennis house are located in Bertha, N.C. over 30 miles, and in a different county from Kill Devil Hillís,.

I'm not into the monster truck thing what so ever.....but my nextdoor neighbor is the owner/driver of Thrasher. I've checked it out the couple times I've seen it at the house. He's actually now dating my ex-sister in law. He and I don't get along much, total dick....but pretty cool toy.
