Jump the Grand Canyon that lies between you and your childhood with the American Classic Toys Evel Knievel Stunt & Jump Set and fondly relive the days of trying to get this thing to work.
The fancy star-spangled suit might seem cheesy now but there was a time when Evel Knievel was the ultimate picture of cool, and toy companies were eager to take advantage of the envy felt by boys all over the world who dreamed of being a daredevil motorcyclist.
Maybe it’s just me, but my experience with the original version of this toy usually consisted of furiously turning the crank, turning Evel loose, and watching him fall over before he got to breakaway brick crash wall or adjustable stunt ramp. However, every now and then, the little guy wearing the plastic helmet would actually make it to the intended target, and those moments were magical.
