White Men Can't Jump Rivers

Old, old, old attempt to jump a rocket car one mile off a eight and a half story ramp across a river.

Let me spare you the suspense: Not even close.

I don't know if it's worth watching, because it takes a while to get to the jump, and it's neither successful nor, well, spectacuarly unsuccessful. Basically the car just disintegrates after coming off the ramp and falls into the river with its parachutes kinda-sorta opening to slow its fall.

Of course there's this guy. There are almost no clips of him on YouTube; just people doing stunts with his toy Stunt Cycle.

I swear, this must have been the only jump he ever successfully made.
