You gotta remember, this thing was built back in a time when Bigfoot was actually popular, even with adults. Popular enough to sell more trucks.

Oh I know. Just never liked the 80's style "trucks". Especially with the big moon visors, chrome everywhere, insane paint jobs, louvers on the rear windows... I just like nice clean lines and a good solid color paint.

Your probably to young to remember the early/mid 80's, but back then the more "stuff" on a vehicle, the faster it would go. Those were the days of low HP engines, so to make vehicles faster, we added chrome, stripes, graphics, anything to gain HP.
That Bigfoot fit right in for the times.

Why do you think we dressed our Harley's up back then. In those days a Harley couldn't get out of it's own way, would mark it's territory, and leave an easy to find oil trail back home. But we loved them, and dressed them up with as much chrome as we could find. Wild paint and striping too....that always made more HP and made them a lot faster.

PA PA PA..... PA PA..... PA POP UP MUTHA PUMPKIN HEADLIGHTS!!!! The only cool 80's car things. The 70's baby poop green and brown paints were and are still the best. Back when a man could be MACHO and not have his sexuality questioned. While wearing the smallest shorts ever made.
