Default Hometown "Stuntman" With a bad idea

I found these pics on line and remembered the story , Tim Mcvay took them

It was about 1980-81 or so ( the chevettes are new? ) local Sioux Falls , South Dakota "stunt" man ..

TRIED to jump like 40 Chevettes ? I believe the idea was for the chute to pull him off the bike and float safely to the ground while the bike made the distance to complete his contract ?

Here is the good part, he made a deal with the sales mgr of Frank Stinson Chevrolet to borrow the cars, and they were not covered under insurance !

Here is "Jumpin John Holland"

Believe the chute came out too early, although, I doubt it mattered ?

Then a few years later ..

He was to jump a gravel pit just north of Sioux Falls with a snowmobile using the same method, he felt he had figured it out ?

Whaaaaatttt ? really ..

Last minute, he found a moment of sanity and backed out , some drunk from the crowd had just enough beer so he said
I'LL GO !!! ..

WELLLLLLL, It did work better, chute pulled the guy off about 100 feet in the air, he landed so hard he broke both legs



He is listed here a few times

http://www.johnnyairtime.com/crashing_records.htm



I last seen John in about 1994 ? he was at the Sioux Empire fair , selling vhs copies of his "stunts" out of a bus ..
and , for a fee you could go inside and see the blood stained suit he wore that day ..

I passed




I was told he ended up in prison for some other dumb thing , not sure if its true or not .. knowing him, it is .

Big Dad doesn't know how to put more than one pic in a post... either that or he think his post count matters.

Two reasons I do it

1) ..if you have ever been on dial up or have a air card, etc

When you stack pics on a post , it takes FOREVER to load them

2) I do it so that when someone quotes a pic ( see above) it doesn't quote like 15 other fucking pics , over and over and over

Don't care about post count, don't reply to every post like some do ..

Been on here for 6 years and see how many I have compared to others
and, I DO indeed know how to post more than one pic ..
