Hi there, & thanks for checking out the
~Monster Trucks U.K.~ website.
So who am I ?
Well my name is Andrew Fielder & I created this
site back in November 1996. That was back in the days when there wasn't
many other Monster Truck sites on the net.
Today there is a lot of sites out there, be it official
websites, or ones done by fans, like this site. The internet is the number
one source for Monster Truck information.
So how did I get into Monster Trucks ?
I'd always been a fan of Monster trucks after I saw
the TV show, "Battle of the Monster Trucks" back in 1985. However I'm from England, where Monster Trucks aren't that popular, so all I had
was the TV Specials, that would usually be on around Christmas time, or
Over the years I would tape the shows from the TV,
& would buy Monster Truck video's & have now built up quite

There was a few years in the early nineties, when

internet I found there where very few website with Monster Trucks. I decided
I'd make a website of my own. I got a free website from Geocities &
had the address for a while, before I actually got any pictures on the
For a while all I had was a couple of pictures of BIGFOOT
6 & a little bit of information, but lots of ideas. Around the same
time BIGFOOT had got it's site online, & allowed me to use some of
the pictures from their photo gallery.
Those pictures belonged to Dave Huntoon, who then
provided me with other pictures of his, to help me build my website.
In building this website, I have made & met many
friends from all over the world, & have become good friends with many
Monster Truck drivers in the USA, interviewed for TV & have been able to visit the USA on vacation
a number of times & attend shows & hang out with drivers.
Over the years, the site has grown quite big &
is sometimes quite hard to keep it updated, as this site is done in my
I am actually a proffessional Chef, & after working
in a number of top hotels in London for over six years, I made a big
move, & relocated from England to the USA in November 1999.
After living in the state of Virginia for 6 1/2 years, I then moved to Florida in 2005 where I currently reside, still working as
