The first monster truck was created in the late seventies when Bob Chandler, a mud bogger from St. Louis, Missouri, wanted to make something bigger and more exciting than the regular four-wheelers he was racing. He bought an old F250 pickup truck and began to build it up as his project.
He added huge tires, a higher suspension and a custom paint job to make it look like a giant monster truck.
The first monster truck was named Bigfoot and it made its debut in 1979 at a mud bogging event in St. Louis. It quickly became popular with the crowd and soon after, other drivers began building their own versions of the monster truck.
In 1981, Bigfoot was taken to a car show in Chicago where it attracted even more attention and soon after, other monster trucks started appearing at shows all across the country.
