Indian Summer – A History of the Original American Motorcycle was a big hit for us when we filmed it 20 years ago (in actual film!). We brought it back from the dead late last year, and the digitally-remastered DVD completely sold out over the holidays, to our utter surprise and delight.
It was such a blast making this film – we learned something new every day, put out a product with guts and class, and made a bunch of money in the bargain – isn't that what success is all about? We also met a whole host of old-timers and aficionados that even Central Casting couldn't make up – this classic clip (and quip) of Irenee duPont riding a 1953 Chief in the house, with his wife Barb riding nonplussed on the back is just a taste of the treasures within.

Classics are classics for good reason.
Old’s cool movies is a relative term, of course, but we’re going to go back to our childhood first, and then cast a glance backward from there to some classic classics. And we're going to try to bring things up to if not to date, at least not too far into the past. The movies will be roughly by decade.
We’ve watched most of these films recently, just to make sure they stand the test of time, and they do. If you haven’t seen some or most of these movies you are not educated. Period.
