Joie Chitwood Thrill Show, Vintage Film with New 1956 Chevys

Written by Ken Altes

Great bunch of vintage car and truck films at archive.com .  Here you can learn how stout is the 1956 Chevrolet sedan.  Joie Chitwood, racer, consultant and stuntman, intentionally crashed more than 3000 cars but died of natural causes at 75.  He raced in seven Indy 500s, finishing fifth three times, and was, shockingly, the first driver to use a safety seat belt in the classic. The Chitwood Trill Show was a national favorite for half a century.
