Trivia

Arthur Hailey closely based the story on the birth of the GTO, the prototypical muscle car created by 1960s Pontiac Division President John DeLorean, as well as the executive's affair with model and actress Kelly Harmon, who became DeLorean's second wife in 1969. DeLorean would later tell his own version of events in the best-selling book, "On a Clear Day YOu Can See General Motors." Forced out of GM, DeLorean would go on to greater notoriety as creator of the ill-fated DeLorean sports car. See more »

We need to get 'Wheels' available on DVD!
14 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

Roc Hudson and Blair Brown play one of the greatest parts of their careers in this compelling drama about the automobile industry.

Wheels, the mini-series, is a wonderful drama wrapped around the ins and outs of the automobile industry.

Why, oh why is this mini-series not available on VCR/DVD??? Not only is there a ton of money to be made, but this wonderful dramatic story should be shared with a new generation!

Please find out who and how we can make this wonderful dramatic story available for the masses!

Thank you for listening!
