Great Cars ... Great DVDs!

"If you are a true car buff you will welcome the availability of this set on DVD. It IS a real history lesson about the origins, development and triumphs of each of these marques. The history is very well presented (not boring), with great archival footage and each disc has additional rarely-seen bonus material (such as factory promo films introducing the 1953 Corvette to GM dealers). Whether you are a rabid "car nut" or completely unfamilar with any of the cars in this series, you will learn something new in these DVDs. It was also great to see man of the very rare antique models held in private collections being driven for the camera, and not just sitting in a museum. After all, isn't that what great cars are all about? ...To be driven! The videography, production and naration are top-notch. Well worth the price and a set that will get repeated viewing by car fans.
I only hope they also make the other programs in this series available soon on DVD."
I'm torn, but I give it a 3...

"...and three stars is pushing it. I gave it three because it exists, and not much else does that tried to cover a comprehensive history of cars. However, it falls short. Firstly, the episodes are a half hour, if that. Modern variations of some cars, like AMG Mercedes, are shown in brief snips, but not covered. Finally, if you are a big enough car nut to rent a disc like this, you want the intricate details of each product line (for instance, specific engine types or limited run racing versions of a Corvette), and they really just skim. I commend them for trying, but dont go into this rental thinking you are going to learn much."
Good Videos For The Car Enthusiast

"The only problem is that the Videos are too short! An auto enthusiast will want to see them all. They are an excellent summary of he Cars and Auto companies they are about. They are very enjoyable."
