"I am a die hard drag racing fan. Nostagia my favorite type of drag racing. The folks are out there to have a good time, not profile for the sponsors.
This dvd didn't work for me. It was poorly shot, poorly edited and fixated on the worst part of racing, the crash. You get to see crashes over and over. Crashes in slow motion, crashes in reverse, crashes in reverse slow motion. I actually fast forwarded thru parts. If this had been my first exposure to vintage racing, I would have walked away thinking all front engine dragsters do nothing but crash.
I gave it one star because amazon won't let me give it zero stars. My advice is to wait for this one to hit the $5.99 video list."

"In the April edition of Hot Rod magazine an article appeared concerning the renewed interest in FEDs (front engine dragsters) and this DVD clearly shows why. These cars are always crowd pleasers and there are dozens featured here. There are also some altereds, some pro mods, and more but the main focus is on FEDs and thats why I recommend it!!"

"This DVD is good in the respect that the "sling-shots"are vintage~But it really fails to bring back the great days of early Drag-racing.Picture qulity is excellant~narration was non exsistant~If you like the old "Rails" the movie is good
~if your after the feel,sights and sounds of yesteryear~keep looking~because this one gets to be pretty long when played~Crash sences are interesting and really the high spots~"

"I bought this for my husband last year for Christmas. He has really enjoyed the DVD. Yes, crashes are not the best end to a race but the DVD is fun anyway. If anyone should be sensitive to the crash aspect it's us as we own, and I race a drag car and I've spent some of my track time sideways. It's not high quality, and has the feel of a "homemade" video but just let that go and have fun with it. It has some great old dragsters!"
