"Our lives were in our own hands," he said. "It was hairy at times, but also a wonderful time." The stunt drivers jumped cars over a space of 9 metres (10 yards) in midair from one celine outlet reviews and ratings ramp to another, wowing the crowds."It was like riding a bike, you just did it," Richard said. "If we overshot the landing ramp we came down with a crash, but I didn't have any serious accidents."

Richard O'Hagan flies through the ring of fire at the Dannevirke A Show in February 1968. "The fire wall was made of petrol soaked pinex and to make a bigger bang, we'd have acetylene bombs [balloons filled with acetylene] tied to the front of our cars.

Appearing on the hallowed grounds of Wellington's Athletic Park was something Richard has never forgotten. "It was a real feat to talk celine outlet handbags jewelry those in charge into letting us perform there," he said. "There we were with exploding, burnt pinex and churned up grass at the home of rugby."
