    You don't get to see a car fly out of the Marina Towers parking garage and plummet into the Chicago River every day.

    The spot culminated with the car plunge, with the crew using a pressurized air hose to vault a driverless 1987 Olds Cutlass into the river.

    The crew repeated the plunge about an hour later.

    And each time the car hit the water, the crowd -- many documenting the stunt on their cell phone cameras -- let out a rousing cheer.

    I snipped it, so if you want to read the whole thing, click away....:slap:
