A newly built “Patrick Chassis” with all new components, along with a Samson body and new vinyl wrap was completed and shipped from Patrick’s shop August 25th to Clive Featherby of Queensland, Australia. Not only did the container hold the new truck, but was full of new parts for Clive’s fleet of Monster Trucks.
Dan will be driving the “Aussie” Samson at the South Pacific World Finals 2, Monsters Tour of Destruction, November 14th at the Brisbane International Speedway.
Check out the Photo of the “Two” Samson’s – Will never be another picture of the two trucks together again!! Shortly after this was taken, the truck on the right was loaded in the container headed to Australia.
The first “Patrick Chassis” to be shipped internationally left the PEI shop on March 25, 2009 for Alaharma, Finland. It arrived to its new owner, Vesa Kivimaki, on April 27, 2009. See pictures below of the work in progress, completed chassis and being loaded into the container to be shipped. Pictures to be added soon of the truck with it’s new body.

Patrick Enterprises has taken on a big new project…customizing a Monster Limo!! The Monster Limo is owned by Broken Bow Records in Nashville, TN. Some of the modifications include a chassis modified with a cradle built and added underneath. The body / chassis is lifted with large monster truck tires mounted and TV monitors displayed underneath.
The Monster Limo, “CHAOS,” left the PEI shop July 16th, 2008, to make its first appearance at the Monster Truck Challenge event July 19th at the Myrtle Beach Speedway. Since the tropical storm cancelled the event for Saturday night, Chaos actually made its first light show appearance in St. Louis on July 26th, 2008. Look for more of this Monster Limo built by Patrick Enterprises. You surely can’t miss it!
