Hello Fellow Knievel - ites
I discovered E.K. around 1968 / 1969, and have been a fan ever since. When Evel went to the prison camp, my cousin was there at the same time. He said EK was cool, down to earth, and told lots of stories about the babes who his Evel Rocket. Well, not long after Evel got out of jail me, my old lady and another couple were driving down Sunset Blvd.
It was bumper to bumper. And who drives up along side of us....Mr K. Me and the other guy holler out
to him, he smiled and waved at us. We wanted to see if he'd let us buy him a few drinks at Barney's Beanery. But, when we got close enough to ask, my old lady yells out "Hey asshole". She's not a fan. He drove off and me and my bud were so pissed. Man, I just wanted to give her a
slap across the face Steve McQueen Style. But, I don't hit women, so I told her that EK may be an asshole at times, but tonight, so was she.
It's nice to have a place Online where we can go to talk about Evel.

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.
