The truck was first built in 1988 specifically for the 1989 film "Roadhouse". The scene starring Bigfoot 7 depicts the truck demolishing a car dealership, including four station wagons. This scene was shot in a single take and cost $500,000 to shoot.
Also, although the truck today has the 10 foot tall tires like Bigfoot 5, the truck had regular tires from when it was first built in 1988, and during its "Roadhouse" appearance, all the way to 1995. After its tire change, it became a display piece and sat outside of the Race Rock Cafe in Orlando until it closed down. It was then moved to Fun Spot USA in Kissimmee, Florida, where it currently resides.
