                                Bigfoot was on some really basic childhood game of mine with random clips (I'm 29). They also had some clip about a giant twine ball. Who remembers that game?

                                    When I was little back in the mid 80's my parents got me and my brother a Bigfoot four wheeler and since i was the youngest my brother use to always take over the four wheeler and I never got to drive, but when i did I was crushing all the cars. 😊😊 Really the only good memory of my messed up childhood.

                                                            Now that's how an engine should look like! A v shaped lower end and 2 heads with valve covers on each side, and a carburator in the middle, and 2 exhaust manifolds on the sides.
                                                            Modern engines look like a washing machine that is stripped from it's sheet metal panels, because all you see is hoses, electrical wires and connectors, and under all that
                                                            crap there's some iron box that has the cilinders and pistons in it, so one ugly mess. That's why they cover the whole shit up in plastic covers, because that chaos under al that happy
                                                            plastic won't win any a beauty contest.

The round headlights with the signal lights above were way cooler than the newer square ones he has on the truck now! Now its matched-matched, his tail lights are '78 and his headlights are '85

In 78-79 the taillights stayed the same as previous years, so they are indeed time period correct even tho the original truck was a 74

Sorry about my remarks but doesn't really begin to get boring knowing that its the original truck... Did some one say thats it's the original? Who edits these vids??? Oh! Lets step back in time!!! Just get on with it....

One of the reasons I like Jay Leno so much is because he believes that machines are meant to run. Its not for show. Putting it in a museum never to be used is just wrong. If it goes to an entity, make it one like the Petersen Museum which actually operates the vehicles it owns.
