Hey Cool Car Fans,
My wife Becky and I were pulling into the Starbucks in Castle Rock this morning, where Hoss and I normally record The Cool Car Guy Show podcast, when Chris “Birdman” Andersen pulled into the parking lot in his unbelievable Monster truck.
A couple guys I know had told me they had seen this vehicle buzzing around the Denver area, but they didn’t know who owned it. Well, now we know and it’s hard to miss this one.
I had to take a picture of his incredible, tricked out, totally black “monster truck” and post it up at CoolCarGuy.com. I don’t know Chris, so I didn’t want to come across as some annoying fan and ask him for details about his vehicle when he’s simply trying to get a drink at a Starbucks. That would not have been cool.
Although, I did tell him that I took a picture of his truck, which was probably odd since most people probably want a picture of him instead of his vehicle. I sure would have liked to have been able to get more details on it because it’s just not a vehicle you see everyday for sure.
I’m not sure how much he spent on this “bad boy”, but at least $150,000, probably more like $250,000 or $350,000 the way it’s tricked out.
Before you say to yourself, “What a waste of money.” as I know some of you are thinking, “He should have bought the new Aston Martin or some other supercar.” this is an incredible piece of machinery, if you are into trucks. I mean look at the thing!
I’m sure he has to have a Commercial Driver’s License because of the size to drive it down the road. Chris is a big man, towering over everyone in Starbucks and he can afford to drive whatever he wants with a new $25 million contract with the Nuggets, so cut him some slack.
Personally, I think his ride is over-the-top cool and makes a statement about who he is when he’s driving down the road. He’s definitely not concerned about the gas mileage or about being politically correct, which is going to score points with most of the readers of CoolCarGuy.com.
Keep in mind that we live in Colorado and there are plenty of people driving Ferrari’s that they spent more money on than he paid for his ride that they can’t drive in the Winter. The “Birdman’s” Monster truck will go in or over anything that comes in front of it and I’m sure he can find some places in Colorado to take it in the mud for a great time.
His monster truck took up a couple parking spots at Starbucks, as you can see the sheer size of this vehicle parked next to the Cadillac Escalade and he was with his pretty girlfriend getting a drink. I said to Becky, “I doubt she ever asks to borrow his truck.”, which is pretty smart for a guy with his toy.
I found a photo of another vehicle that Chris owns or had owned, maybe he traded up to this new ride because the other one is just a full size pickup compared to this vehicle. However, he made a statement with that one too with a set of horns on the front of the truck, but there is no need for any horns on this “monster”.
As far as a Cool Car Guy Cool Car Shot goes, I’m going to rate his truck five stars for being Extremely Cool.
