INFORMATION: The Wild Thang truck is definately a wild truck. The first thing you notice about the truck is it's body. The body resembles a skull, wearing a pair of shades. This definatley makes it a one of a kind truck. When Tony Farrel isn't driving a monster truck , he drives a school bus. It was some of the school students who choose the design of the truck.
Tony started off in mud racing, before moving on to monster truck racing.
When Tony built the truck it didn't really have a name, but the crowd soon nicknamed it Wild Thang as at it's first show the truck put on such a wild performance & was rolled in one race & in another a bit later, he ripped off the hood of the truck when landing hard. The truck is now a crowd favourite, & you either love it or hate the look of the body.
