Evel Knievel dies

If you were a kid in the 70's this will be a hard one...Evel Knievel died. It's not news about toy cars but it's worth noting I think. I was one of the tons of kids that had a little white Evel Knievel motorcycle that you had a zip cord to get it reved up. I must have played with that until the wheels fell off...I loved that toy and it was one of the first memories I have of TV. Seeing Evel doing his daredevil riding and stunts. Anyway, here's a tribute from the AP on the icon.

And a story from AFP.
