    Ahhh.. I overlooked the World's Fastest Indian.. Great movie. I wasn't going to put up any motorcycle movies but as seeing they're on here anyways, don't leave out "The Wild One."

    Wasn't there a movie called Hot Rod? The guy crashes his car and puts the motor in an old Willys to beat the bad guys running the town. Saw it once on a late show. Kinda corny, but car entertainment and I'd watch it again if I could find it.
  9. That was an instant classic.
    Borat does it for me.

    The World's Fastest Indian is very inspirational and motivating. I'm not a bike guy, but this movie shows what can be accomplished with determination and very little money.

    Well I can only suggest my best sellers:
    1) Hot Rod (1979)
    2) Dirty Mary Crazy Larry
    3) Two Lane Blacktop
    4) Hollywood Knights
    5) Catch me if you can
    6) Born to Run
    7) Heart Like a Wheel
    8) Vanishing Point
    9) American Graffiti
    10) Last American Hero
    The above have been my most popular selling DVD's for over 18 years of selling at car events. Any one of the above get my "gas pedal foot" shakin...
  21. It's not Mark Hamil but Harry Hamlin Clash of the Titans and L.A. Law in there, along with Dan "Grizzly Adams" Haggerty and Deborah Van Valkenburgh of The Warriors and the Too Close For Comfort T.V. show. Pretty cool beat up old mid 60s 'Vette Hopper drives.

    Bing, we have a winner. Here lately I watch an NHRA race and less than halfway thru turn off the TV and go out and work on my own junk instead of watching someone else race thiers.

    So why am I on the computer instead of out in the shop now?
