* SPECIAL "VALUE ADD" DVD - Great Cars: Corvette
Returning from World War II, many soldiers told stories of the loves they'd left behind. or some, it was a mechanical sweetheart -- the European sports car. So, the nation was primed for the debut of the 1953 Corvette, a fiberglass two-seater that was the first mass-produced American sports car. The first car was more show than go, but over the years Corvette has evolved from a cute-looking roadster to the menacing Sting Ray, and now to one of the world's sleekest, sexiest and fastest high-tech sports cars.
In late 2011, Shout! Factory acquired extensive proprietary rights to the classic TV series ROUTE 66, including all original episodes, its archived materials, worldwide home entertainment and digital rights and North American broadcast rights.
