Trans Am Racing Series History on DVD

When you think of watching a DVD you usually don’t think of history or cars. However, I have a DVD for you that will make you want to delay that trip out to the garage. You will want to sit down in front of the flat screen and pop this sucker into the DVD player as soon as you get it, I did.

If you are into Pony cars or racing you must watch this History of the Trans Am Racing Series. This is the way it was back when your little Pony car jewel was new. This is the racing that made us all want to go down to the dealership and purchase a new Pony car. It wasn’t NASCAR or NHRA that sold Mustangs, Camaros, Firebirds, Challengers, Cudas or Javelins; it was the Trans Am Series. That is what won on Sunday and sold on Monday meant to the Pony car crowd.

These car owners wanted to go fast AND turn corners. This kind of racing gave birth to the Camaro Z28, the Firebird Trans Am and the Mustang Boss 302 as well as the Javelin SST, Challenger TA and Barracuda AAR.

When I first saw this video was available I knew I had to have it. I am partial to the early years of the Trans Am Series but always enjoyed it throughout the years of its existence.

This DVD does an excellent job of providing a quick historical overview of the Trans Am Series from its beginning. Included are some excellent racing footage as well as interviews with drivers. Some of their insider comments about the cheating going on back-in-the-day will put a big smile on your face.

Heck, the race track photos of all the young girls and vintage clothing of that period are worth the price of the DVD.

If you go to our Book Review on Racing page you can even watch a brief hint of what you will find on the DVD.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
