The fastest Indian in the world

Some of you would have seen this flick but I had the pleasure to see it for the first time last night.
True story of a New Zealander who broke the land speed record at Bonneville on a 1920 Indian. He apparently still holds one record that he set in 1967.
Great story and a nostalgic look at the places and peoples generosity in that era.
Recommended holiday viewing.

I'm not one who reads books over, nor watches movies again and again. I just love that one and it sits next to two other classics that remain and are watched over- "The Jerk" and "A Fish Called Wanda".

What was that middle thang?
