Wow! Only 2 comments about killing a '49 Merc? What about the '41 Chevys?

Rad. My boss used to be friends with Joie and bought a few of his cars back in the 60's & 70's, he said he loved to drive them around with "Joie Chitwood Thrill Show" lettered on the side and gets attention everywhere.

In 1965 or so when I was a about 7 I saw a "Hell Drivers" show in Binghampton or Liberty or Beacon (one of those towns) in upstate New York. It had an almost identical itinerary of stunts so I reckon this was pretty much what you would see at any stunt show around that time. No doubt any new stunt innovation would be immediately copied by every other outfit.

Great little film. Our expectations of what thrills us now has really changed

I remember that the "Hell Drivers" slide for life was longer and had more fire. They also had a more elaborate "Dive Bomber" crash using more cars.
