Rocket-powered car jumps river

Why didn’t I know about this one before?

In 1973, stuntman Ken Carter attempted to jump over the St Lawrence River, a distance of over one mile, in a rocket-powered Lincoln Continental.

Let’s just pause for a moment and savour those words: Rocket-Powered Lincoln Continental.

The stunt itself starts at the 2:09 mark, so just skip to there if you’re impatient.
