Fast Car - - Out There -

Nope, it’s got noth­ing to do with how quick you can scoff a mut­ton vin­daloo… although it’s still one of our Jules’ other favourite pas­times. A story made all the more amaz­ing be­cause most of it is true, The World’s Fastest In­dian stars An­thony Hop­kins as Kiwi hero Burt Munro and doc­u­ments his strug­gle to get his mod­i­fied mo­tor­bike (a 1920s In­dian Scout) to Bon­neville. As in real life, Burt sets a new land speed record of over 200mph, and that was way back in the 1960s on a bike that had a top speed of 56mph from the fac­tory. He also liked to pee on his le­mon tree… although ap­par­ently they made that bit up. Bon­neville was also the lo­ca­tion for the clos­ings cred­its on 80s show Knight Rider - re­mem­ber that one? Sadly we’re old enough.
