A Very Cool CD! Jul 7, 2008
The Book and CD sound kind of gimmicky but rest assured both are great. When I ordered it I figured I'd get a cool book with neat old car photos and a lame-o CD. Not so! The music is very good! A fun item!
Bood book but not good printing Apr 24, 2006
It is a pity that a good photographic material is loost in a deficient printing. The paper is porous and it make photos look dim.
