Joie Chitwood's Thrill Show promoting the '50 Ford then the '56 Chevrolet


Here's a poster showing Joie Chitwoods Daredevil show driving 1950 Fords and also a great promotional video link for the 1956 Chevrolet done with Joie Chitwood's Thrill Show. Various automotive manufacturers would use these thrill shows to promote their products. This is great stuff from my favourite era! BE SURE TO CLICK HERE TO SEE THE '56 CHEVY PROMO FILM....enjoy - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Au9I5hLD29Q&feature=channel_page

I seen the Joie Chitwood's Thrill Show at the Lewis County Fair in upstate New York back in the late 60's early 70's and to this day remember the show it was awsome.

I saw him in the early 70's at the Bedford, Pennsylvania Fairgrounds when I was a kid. Loved the show.
