Best Museum - 2006
Bigfoot 4x4, Inc.
Art, schmart. History, schmistory. There's no better way to get the gray-matter gears turning than by visiting Bigfoot 4x4, Inc., the definitive monument to the monster truck that set off the entire car-crushing craze of the '80s. Check out the original Bigfoot, a Ford F-250 owned by Bob Chandler, as well as 30-plus years of memorabilia and the garage in which these behemoths are built and serviced. There are also video games, photo ops galore, a fully loaded store and a retrospective on the various Bigfeet that have appeared in silver-screen classics like Road House, Tango & Cash and Police Academy 6. Best of all, the museum is free! Put your pedal to the metal 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. (The blue beast rests on Sundays, as should you.)
