THROWBACK VIDEO Bigfoot Ford Headlines the Monster Truck Event

1990 ford bigfoot ad

This week’s Throwback video features an advertisement for a U.S. Hot Rod Association Monster Truck event at Detroit’s Silverdome. This commercial shows a variety of different types of pictures, along with some non-trucks included in the monster trucking fun, but the legendary Ford F-250 Bigfoot appears throughout the ad…and of course it does. After all, Bigfoot invented the sport of monster truck racing.

This video is chock full of 1990-esque motorsport fun, including monster trucks from Ford, Chevy and Dodge and both car and truck pulls, featuring classic Ford and Chevy cars modified to pull the big sled.

While the Pontiac Silverdome near Detroit has practically melted back into the earth, with the Detroit Lions moving to Ford Field in Detroit, there is almost nothing left of this once-great venue – but the monster truck world lives on.

Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
