    Missed it--can I order a DVD?

    Does WATV sell it on discs?
    For anyone who doesn't know the producer of that series. Lenny, also was the one who
    started a business with Shelby to revive the GT350 (exact copies of '66 convertibles) but the car couldn't be
    priced high enough to make a profit on the cars so it was abandoned.

    I don't think DVDs are available at this point but hopefully sometime soon. They are replaying the shows several times...check the Velocity website linked in the initial post for exact day and time.
