Who Killed the Electric Car? is a an excellent movie about the rise and fall of electric cars by GM and Honda. GM's EV-1 electric car was the world's most aerodynamic production car ever made. GM took a prototype 183 mph on the Salt Flats!

The World's Fastest Indian [DVD] [HD DVD] [Blu-ray] is a great video about Salt Flats Racing. It is a true story about Burt Munroe taking his antique Indian motorcycle 200 mph on the Salt Flats, despite the doubts of everyone that knows him.
