Howard, I am curious about your comment below.."a bit far fetched for my 
money," What is far fetched? This actually occurred and Burt Monro is still in 
the record books. While some artistic license might have happened, the 
underlying story is correct. Several of my land speed racing friends were there 
and indeed chipped in money for Burt, as seen in the movie. Only the tow car 
was an earlier model of chevy, lol... trailer looked just like still photos 
from the time. Yes, he did cast his own pistons and he did machine his own 
overhead valve heads for the old Indian flathead motor cycle. Burt Monro is an 
icon to most of us who do race on the salt.?
