Hello Dennis

Great to hear from you. I still have the models you built of HOTSTUFF and HIGH VOLTAGE and have gotten a lot of compliments on them over the years when we have guests at our house. They are still in great shape, I just have to keep them out of reach of my new 4 month old daughter. I still have both jeeps but I only run them on a limited schedule, concentrating mainly on the CAPTAIN AMERICA truck which we have had a lot of success with. Both jeeps are for sale as well as their haulers to anyone who is serious.

Best wishes Jeff Bainter

I scanned these shots from Monster Jam Official Souvenir Yearbooks.
