The year: 1976. The daredevil: Kenny Powers. The challenge: Could a car jump a distance of one mile? Known as the 'SUPERJUMP', this well-beyond-insane stunt hinged on the performance of a rocket-powered Lincoln Continental capable of reaching speeds of 280 mph. Years in planning, at a cost of over a million dollars, the event was to be nothing less than the greatest automotive stunt ever attempted... Would Powers clear the St. Lawrence river, or die a spectacular death right in front of thousands of horrified onlookers?

Why didn't he give me the million? I would have jumped the country with it.
