PICTURES

FROM THE

2008

SEASON

THE BIG ONE

I want to Thank!  Ray Ray Quad for the pictures of my Kamikaze Death Drop on Saturday night, August 9th at the Wayne County Fair in Honesdale, PA during the KSR Monster Truck Show.

First the car is standing up straight just before lift off into the sky which is the next picture.

IMPORTANT NOTE: ( Crash used a completely stock automobile like the European Stunt Performers use.) Crash is not like the over safety concessious American Stuntmen who think they are in the Movies everytime they perform and makes lots of money.


UP UP and AWAY we go.















My flying machine is still going up to the cruising altitude which is on the left. Bottom the falling death drop with Crash Moreau inside.





















On impact there is an explosion and than the safety crew rushes to the car.























Crash is helped out of the car and than talks to the audience. Pictured talking with Crash is Jeff Bursey the announcer for the show on the left is Ray Ray Quad and on the right  back to is Lou The Rocket Re.
















MORE PICTURES OF THE DEATH DROP from ROCKET RE



Crash going up, up, and up. Before the free fall.

Crash is being helped out of the drop car by long time stunt performer and friend Tonni Petersen who stayed over to see this spectacular display of courage by Crash.

















After the free fall Crash talks with the announcer Jeff Bursey. In this picture you can see a shooked up daredevil Crash Moreau who can claim to be the oldest stuntman to drop from a crane in a stock automobile that was not set-up with roll-bars, etc.

Crash standing in the glow of the lights from the grandstand after his flite in space.


















NOW BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR

With many snow storms this winter compared to the past few years here are a couple of shots of my famous junk yard art burried in a foot of snow in Lincoln, ME







After shoveling out the driveway to my house after a foot of snow fell.  You can see how high the snowbanks are and my burried Torpedo Crash Art.






This picture was taken at the New York State Fair Convention in Rochester where the ground was bare with no snow. What a difference then Maine this year. Here I am in my booth along with former thrill show owner Gordy Allen who has come out of thrill show retirement to work with me in 2008 on the Thrillmasters Stunt Show on the fair circuit.
We also attended the PA Fair Convention the previous 2 days.

















On the Saturday prior to "Super Tuesday", Crash shook hands with our next President of the United States, Barac Obama at Nicky's Crusin Diner on Union Street in Bangor, Maine. With a well kept secret of his arrival it was shear luck that Crash met him. Of coarse Crash forgot his camera on this occasion. But this is where it happened.

The next two pictures was just taken on March 2 after another 10 plus inches of snow hit the area. So far we have had over 90 inches of snow this winter and wind gust of over 50 mph. You can see my junk yard art is still standing up and even burried in snow.

INTERVIEW FOR PROGRAM OF

THE HISTORY CHANNEL

"SHOCK WAVE"


Crash sitting patienly for the interview to start. As you can tell it was a very damp day in Lincoln. In the back-ground is the Junk Yard Art once again seen thru out the country.





















One of the scene is Crash walking thru his back lot of stunt props that some people think is junk.







A close up shot of Crash.

















 THE STUNT PERFORMANCES HAS STARTED!!


Picture here are the three acts that we performed at the Lebanon Valley Speedway in 2008. From left to right you see the school bus standing up, the large dirt pile to jump the coachman off and the car we will blow up in a fiery ball of flames.








The automobile headed to the ramp to leap into the up righted school bus.


See the front end of this car after hitting the bus straight on about 18 feet in the air.

The KSR Crew waiting for the news of the show being cancelled because of the inclimate weather.The show was reshedule for the next evening in which I performed the Dooms Day Chair.





I do not have many still pictures of what I did this year as most everything I did was the same as years before and during my two complete shows I was so busy I didn't have time to take photos. If anyone did I wish they would send me a copy.
