Podtease: Motorcycles & Misfits with Liza Miller – episode 361: Gary Davis; The Coolest Interview We’ve Ever Done


Powered by Podetize

What do Evel Knievel, Captain America, Kenny Roberts and the Terminator have in common? In 2018 Emma, Michael and myself scored an interview with Gary Davis, the coolest guy you’ve probably never heard of. Gary was inducted into the AMA hall of fame for his career as a racer, daredevil and stuntman.

In 1969 he raced alongside greats like Kenny Roberts and Gary Scott.

In 1972 he beat Evil Knievel’s record by jumping 21 cars. But it wasn’t an ordinary jump. He did it with a a partner, both at the same time and passing each other in mid air only feet apart.

He then became a stuntman in the movies and TV, doing all of Evel’s stunts in Viva Knievel and countless other spots.

Next he became a stunt coordinator and 2nd Unit director on films like Terminator 2, Predator 2, Starsky and Hutch, and Torque.

And in 2018 he was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame.

He is still in the business today, as well as being a collector, a bike builder and all around cool guy. So take a listen and enjoy getting to know about Gary Davis and his amazing life.

With Liza, Miss Emma and Michael.
