Also Ed Cole talking up the performance concept of hot rodders while driving a 'performance' 55 Mercury which would have been after the release of his infamous SBC V8.

Also floored me to see images of a flathead I6 when discussing the venerable Ford Flathead V8.

Discussing the history of Model T's while showing scenes filmed in the late 30's were inexcusable

Showing a 1931 Ford Model A for the into of the 28 Model A was laughable.

So i wasn't exactly enamored of the series.

Yeah, but the early Mopar stuff was COOL!

Seriously, I believe who ever put this together was a big Mopar fan and didn't care much for Ford or GM. And don't believe Henry Ford was the terrible abusive guy they made him out to be.
