Anyone seen it, remember it?   I saw it about 15yrs ago when it appeared late night on Aus ABC TV.  I wish I had it on video.  Fascinating story about Ken Carter, a daredevil/stunt man who planned a World record car jump by wanting to jump a rocket powered Lincoln Continental 1 mile from Canada, over the St Lawrence River, into NY state...

Ah bugger it, read the link, it's quicker :D http://stuntdriver1.com/history/Ken-Carter.html

These guys had nuts of titanium.  For a youtube teaser see the link below.  It's worth getting the video and watch the whole movie length scenario play out from the start which also chronicles Ken's career.  The story builds and builds, there's set backs upon set backs then some back stabbing and a remarkable ending which if you've read the link above I've spoiled any surprises.
