What Happened to the Monster Mutt Monster Truck?

The Monster Mutt monster truck was one of the most recognizable vehicles in the world. It was the star attraction at many motorsport events and a favorite of kids and adults alike. But in recent years, the Monster Mutt has gone missing from the track.

The Monster Mutt’s origins go back to the 1970s, when a local car enthusiast named John Schultz began building custom monster trucks. He wanted to create something that would stand out from the competition and be a show stopper.

He chose an old Ford F-250 pickup truck as his base and modified it with massive tires, a raised suspension, and an impressive paint job. The result was one of the most iconic monster trucks of all time.

Schultz’s Monster Mutt quickly gained popularity and he went on to compete in numerous races over the years. He was even featured on a few television shows like “Monster Jam” where he gave his truck its signature howl by revving its engine.

But eventually, Schultz retired from racing and sold his beloved Monster Mutt to another driver, who continued to race it for several more years. However, in recent years, nobody has seen or heard from the Monster Mutt or its new owner.

It’s unclear what happened to the truck or where it is now. Some say it was sold off again while others claim that it is sitting in some forgotten garage somewhere collecting dust. Whatever happened to it, one thing is certain – there will never be another vehicle quite like John Schultz’s Monster Mutt.


The fate of John Schultz’s beloved Monster Mutt monster truck remains a mystery but what is certain is that this iconic vehicle will never be forgotten by those who loved it so much. It may have disappeared from public view but its legacy lives on as an example of what can be achieved with passion and creativity.
