Hi Dennis,

I'm sending you more pictures of monster trax Son of Goliath and Top Gun. The summer pictures are from 1996 and the winter pictures are from 1999. As you will see on 99's winter pictures, the trucks look to be deteriorated. This is because the trucks are always at the exterior so they are exposed to winter aggression and public aggression too, due to free access without control. The maintenance is really not their priority.... Anyway if you're like me, you will appreciate the frame and construction details.

Hope you enjoy


Thanks again for your help Daniel
