Evel Knievels trailer with personal effect
Posted by Michael on October 16, 2013, 10:07 pm
I recently picked up a really cool piece of Evel Knievel memorabilia from a local stuntman that I am proud to own. It is the custom built trailer that Knievel used to pull behind his Aston Martin Lagonza. He would take it to various events, open it up and display memorabilia. He had it at the 25th anniversary of the Snake River canyon jump. Later when he stopped touring he used it just to transport his golf clubs. The front right side of the trailer is dented up. The story I was told is that he was so angry after loosing a large sum of money in a bet on a golf game that be beat the side of the trailer with his golf club! It had some of his personal effects in the front, extra set of rims, seat cover, Snake River coin, business card and original photos of him looking in the trailers front compartment while it was attached to his car.
I attached a photobucket link of some pics.

On Oct 17th 1938 a baby was born.
That baby would become a man,that man became a LEGEND.
On Nov 30th 2007 the man passed away.
But his Legend lives on in the hearts the minds and the memories of
the millions of people whose lives he touched in the 69 years he graced the earth.
Thanks Evel we will NEVER FORGET YOU.
