Some Great Cars!!!!!!!
21 January 2003 | by (USA North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Not Bad Really, a lot of great Hot Rods and some fast Drag Racing as well. The Sound Track was good and the drag racing was excellent. I liked the way they brought back Fast Eddie from hiding from under the High School Football Field from years ago and dispelled the myth.
