YES, I'm familiar with the movie. However, if THAT is what you were referencing, then you probably shouldn't said/typed THIS...No, the movie "The fastest Indian" IS about an Indian. In 1968 Bert Munro went 183.95 mph on a 1920 Indian Scout. Bert may have set other records , but this is the one I was referencing.
Because that was NOT Burt Munro, NOT an Indian, and NOT the focus of the movie.I love that movie. Anyone who goes 150mph prone on a 20's indian on salt in a bathing suit has true grit.
Drive it as-is. Looks as good or better than many cars I see driving around SC.I listed my DR350s on Marketplace for $1900 or trade for performance SBC 350. I’m looking for an engine for my truck. A guy messaged me to offer this 1980 Camaro Z28. It has a built 010 block engine, posi rear end, TH350 tranny. A great running car, but it was taken into a ditch and hooked a tree in 2017. He offered to pull the engine or give me the whole car. I said “heck with it” and took the whole car figuring I could part it out. Now I’m stuck with the decision to actually part it or fix it and I’m struggling to decide. The subframe actually took no damage, so this car is completely fixable. He gave me two front fenders and there’s a complete front end on Maketplace in Macon, GA for $350.

Yes they were. I believe the F bodies (Camaro/Firebird), the S-10/Sonoma trucks, and the Astro/Safari vans shared lots and lots of components. Most of those vehicles succumbed to body cancer (rust) before their running gear gave out. Nice parts like the IROC Camaro steering box and other stuff were supposedly direct swaps.Those F bodies are tough old cars.
