MORTON Ill -- If watching cars get torn apart and ran over are your thing, Sam Leman's Chrysler, Jeep Dodge dealership is the place for you.

The iconic Raminator Monster Truck will be at their shop in Morton, ripping through junk cars donated by Neal's Auto Parts in Peoria.

The Raminator is a nearly 10 foot truck weighing more than 5 tons.

"They put a bunch of old junk cars out back and we just cut loose on them and let it rip," said Hall. "They've got a great place for car crushing with a real nice lot out back. It's a nice grass lot, so we'll let it rip out there, crush some cars, and make a big mess. We'll do some doughnuts and make a lot of noise. If you're in to that sort of thing, this is the place to be."

The chaos is part of the dealership's 5th annual customer appreciation event and starts at 7 pm Friday in the Sam Leman's back lot.

Admission is free.
