Goodbye Robert Craig Knievel

Evel Knievel started his daredevil career the year I was born. He died today, only 69 years old. I remember watching his 1974 attempt at jumping the Snake River Canyon on a rocket powered motorcycle (failed) and in the same year jumping over 13 Mack trucks...success.

The Evel photo reminded me of my Adam poster. Same agency, or just trends of the times?
