HISTORY: William was in the process of building a monster truck when he saw a cartoon in a 1984 OFF-Road magazine. The toon showed a truck body on a full tank. The turrit was still on the tank. William decided to look for a tank. When he found one, he sold his monster tires, and military axles, to build the Beast. Since then the demand has forced him to build several identical Beasts to keep up.

This was the first monster truck tank to be built. Many more later followed. William got the idea for his creation after seeing a cartoon in a four wheel drive magazine, which showed a truck body with a gun, on a tank tracks. So he decided to build himself one, without the gun though. The tank tracks are from a M4 Tank Retriever, which was used in world war 2. The truck can drive over cars at peculiar angles, which leave the spectators thinking that the tank will tip over at any minute, but the Virginia Beach Beast is so bottom heavy, that it can be really slung about over the cars, with no fear of tipping over.
   

From the 1988 USHRA event in Anaheim, CA, this is George Cole in Gator taking on Willie Powers in Virginia Beach Beast. Listen for the loud bang when the two have a bit too close of an encounter at the end of the race.


Classical monster truck racing event from 1989.

As we watched this beast crawl up the RTI Ramp, observed the pivot point just behind the cab of the truck as it worked it's extra flex into a great score for a 118 inch wheelbase vehicle, we knew we would have to do a page on this beast
