Grave Digger on display
My son and I love our Hot Wheels Monster Jam Monster trucks… we have a couple of the playsets, and lots and lots of trucks. We race them down the Showdown ramp, we spin donuts in the Crash Arena, and much to my wife’s chagrin, we leave them all over the house.

I chose to display Grave Digger the Legend and Iron Man because we saw them compete when they came to DC. Check out my video and pics from that event.
