Evel Knievel passed away in 2007. He was a sack of broken bones that inspired a generation of daredevils, a patron saint of hoonage. He is not dead.
I shed a tear the day my 9 year old super girly girl niece grabbed one of my 2 year old nephew's Hot Wheels and started playing with it and said, "look, it's The Stig!"
There is hope for the future, fellow hoons. There is hope.
