    Evel Knievel: DEAD

    Sad...there was a time when I thought that he was the coolest guy in the world! Even had his replica "doll" and motorcycle! Of course...I was only 7! RIP Evel!

    A true American icon. I tore most of the skin off of my knuckles cranking on that little red box to launch his cycle.

    Mine wouldn't either, but I was convinced that if I cranked that baby for two or three minutes, that little bastard would take off at 120 mph. Sounded like a jumbo jet trying to take off. I'm not sure why my mom made me take it outside?

    It was always a big night of TV when Evel was gonna be on. Seems like a long time ago though.

    Re: Evel Knievel: DEAD

    A great personable Man, I worked for a raceway concessionaire back in the day. Evel jumped like 20 buses. we got to visit his trailer and serve his food and beverage to him on that day in Colorado....

    He was a icon, he will be missed..

    The man had style. He carried around a diamond-encrusted cane with a screw-off top so it could hold Wild Turkey.
