Just imagine. It’s 1975 and Evil Knievel has already stolen all of your best ideas for crazy ways you can damage your own frail little body. No matter! You are pimping your best Tom Selleck look – and you’ve got a Lincoln Continental! What else could you possibly need?!?
Wait! I know! How about if we strap a rocket onto the back of the Lincoln and attempt to jump it across a 1 mile wide river! Yeah, that’s the ticket!
So what if Evil couldn’t even make it 300 feet across some creek, you’re going to get up to 88 miles per hour, and you have this great idea for a flux capacitor! Good luck!
