Evel Knievel was huge in the late 1960s and early '70s. It seemed all young dudes had posters of Evel on their bedroom walls and all the "chicks" thought he was "far out!" As a kid I got to see the famous stuntman in person on several occasions, and you bet I was glued to the tube when Evel took on the Snake River Canyon. That was exciting stuff for the '70s. Heck, that's exciting stuff now!
