    I thought the program was interesting, and bought the DVD last year. Unless they've updated, its' focused on the 2007 Z06. Also bought the Ferarri 599 video. Amazing car. The announcer is a little overly exuberant, and there are some inaccuracies, but it's worth the time to watch. As far as the current state of the Corvette, 2010 Z06 and everything else, check Jim Van Dorn's Automasters Blog, Welcome to Automasters of Bowling Green. Looks bleak.

    "Camaro"......

    The program is flawed......... says that engine gases are vented through the holes in the brake rotors?

    Very depressing indeed, Automasters and Jim sponsered many an Early Arrival Barbecue for the C5/C6 Bash and they WILL be missed.

    Jim Van Dorn just needs to go ahead and do whatever he intends to do without all the negative unproductive comments.

    Well, I watched the show again last night. I have watched it 5 times and thought it was about time to get the DVD. I went to National Geographic channel website and placed an order for the DVD. They were sold out but taking backorders...$19.95

    I wonder when it will arrive in the mail.
