I bet a lot of people here on Motortopia grew up watching Evel Knievel jumping over cars, buses, sharks and even the Snake River Canyon. Some of you probably even had Evel Knievel action figures, motorcycles, or my favorite toy, the "exploding" stunt car that flew apart when it hit the walls.

Sadly, Evel Kneivel died Friday at the age of 69. He retired in 1980 and had been in pretty poor health for the past decade or so.

I bet he is up there planning his next jump right now. God speed Evel.
