Drag Racing #12 : Decade Of Thrills

 

2-DVD’s (186 minutes)

NHRA Drag Racing skyrocketed in popularity in the 1980’s, thanks to great
multi-camera work by Diamond P Productions, weekly race coverage, and excellent
commentary by Steve Evans. Fans of this great era of drag racing will recall
these two excellent documentaries when they originally came out on VHS tape
back in 1984 and 1990. We have both installments of this hard to find series,
titled “Decade Of Thrills” and “Decade Of Thrills II”, converted from VHS to DVD!

 

Decade Of Thrills (1984) – 94 min
The first “Decade Of Thrills” video was the forerunner to all drag racing highlight videos that followed. Hosted by
Steve Evans and Don Prudhomme, we see all the greatest achievements, crashes, and highlights from the 1983-earlier
era of NHRA Drag Racing. Shirley Muldowney, Don Garlits, Gary Beck, Bob Glidden, Lee Shepherd, and many more
legends of this era (including Don Prudhomme himself), are covered in this excellent video. Converted from an old VHS
tape, this is a nice, clean copy of this 30-year old video, converted here to DVD.

Decade Of Thrills II  (1990) – 92 min
The popularity of the first “Decade Of Thrills” naturally spawned a second installment. This one covers the 1980-1989
time period. Joe Amato and his revolutionary rear wing, new aerodynamics from Don Garlits, Eddie Hill, Shirley
Muldowney’s comeback, Kenny Bernstein’s amazing domination of the Funny Car, Bob Glidden’s grip on the Pro Stock
ranks, and of course the wildest crashes of the era and much more! Like the first installment of “Decade Of Thrills”,
Volume II  is again hosted by Steve Evans and Don Prudhomme, and again, this copy is my original VHS tape.
