His piece Father's Day contains this information:
“My Father the Great “Big Smith” once was a Dare Devil and Stunt Man… In the Guinness Book of World Records for being the only man to jump a Motorized Wheel Chair, which he made himself, over 4 cars..later i think it was 8; he's got nerve, no doubt about it.”
