The stunt king is planning a motorcycle jump to coincide with next spring's opening of the Evel Knievel Xperience, a restaurant and theme park in Primm, Nev.
SI: Can a 63-year-old still be a daredevil?
Knievel: Not still be—I am a daredevil. I'm not only the best-known daredevil on the face of the earth, I'm the oldest.
SI: You used to drink a shot of Wild Turkey before jumping. What did you do to prepare for this interview?
Knievel: Sometimes I had two or three Wild Turkeys before jumping. Before the Snake River Canyon jump I had six of them. For this interview I just had a light beer.
SI: Tell us about your upcoming jump.
Knievel: I'm going to jump somewhere between 20 to 30 big trucks or buses at either the opening of my Xperience or at some stadium. Who knows? I might even try it at Yankee Stadium.
SI: Ever do wheelies just for old times' sake?
Knievel: S—-, yes. All the time.
SI: Out of the three dozen injuries you suffered, which was the most painful?
