Stuntman Kenny Powers Million Dollar Jump

Back in the 70's stuntmen were revered, did some very crazy stuff and it was just a beautiful time for big, heavy cars with huge horsepower. This river jump by Kenny Powers was one of the craziest stunts of the time. He tried to jump the St. Lawrence River in a Rocket powered Lincoln. He should have chosen something a little bit more aerodynamic. Great footage and there is a lot more to the story as Ken Carter was the original stuntman who planned the stunt. Read about him here.
