Reno, NV. — With 10-foot tall tires from an old Alaskan land train, BIGFOOT #5 goes pretty much wherever it wants, whenever it wants.

Yet, Hot August Nights 2013 in Reno is the furthest west the truck has traveled for an event.

Needless to say, the BIGFOOT sighting in downtown Reno drew a crowd a curious onlookers, who gathered to watch the truck’s unique assembly process—a process that takes four hours to complete. BIGFOOT #5 will stand guard the rest of the week near the entrance to the Hot August Nights Big Boy Toy Store.

The Big Boy Toy Store opens today at the Reno Events Center and is the biggest in recent memory. Show spectators can browse the latest aftermarket parts and accessories, talk directly to more than 100 manufacturers, get show discounts on parts, and even have their order shipped to their home for free. The Big Boy Toy Store will remain open through Saturday.
