Thats Big 'Oly the Olympia Beer bronco. I like how it sly says Big Goly, Golympia and Firestoned! Nice subtle difference!!

Rory- Are you and Dave "big" Deal buddies? The shirt is awsome, just wondered if he is flattered?
As to the Big Oly, it was built by the guys from the Stroppe shop to run. There is a funny story about how it actually came to be. Seems Parnelli paid the guys at the shop to build it behind Stroppes back because he didn't want to do it. Then he found out, was pissed, but it all worked out in the end. It was a 2wd Funny Bronco and it was way fast for the times.

Great job on the new/old shirt! Make sure you've got a XXL for me!

Martin,

Thanks for the HUGE compliment. Dave Deal is by far the biggest influence in my artwork. I've been enjoying his artwork for well over 21 years. I got the chance to meet him a couple years ago and it was quite the honor. For those of you who don't know who Dave Deal is, he's an artist who does a lot of cartoon work......90% cars. He's working with Pixar (people who did the Toy Story movies) and a movie is suppose to be out in 2005...Pixars next big movie. Look for yourself @ www.bigdealart.com .

Tony, I thought you might like it. Big Oly was pretty much the first real Trophy Truck. No frame under it, all tube chassis. To see more about Big Oly, go to: www.bajabronco.com/BigOly.shtml
Thanks for the compliments everyone, hope to see you all at PRIMM. Hey Gabe, are you bringing out the Ranger yet? GEZ!

Rory- As they say, flattery is the highest compliment paid. I met Dave back in the late '80's when he was selling his offroad coloring book. He was buddies with the guys at B&R Buggy in O'side and he was also racing with some of the guys around there. I have one of his SCAT posters from probably close to 20 years ago. The Drive In. The names on the tires were always cool and yours fit perfectly. Were you a big fan of "CARtoons" as a kid? I was and may still have some in a box somewhere. Those even predate Dave!

Martin,

Actually, Dave has done about 6 or 7 covers for CARtoons magazine in the mid and late 70's. I'm looking for those issues so if you have any, let me know and I'll buy them from you.

Rory, I read them and all I could about the Fuel altereds into about 4th grade, which was about '74. Then I saw the Movie Dirt and we were hitting Pismo quite a bit and my car needs changed a bit. There were still some offroad stuff in Cartoons even back then.I will look and see what I can Find.
