See the USA in Your CHEVROLET!

Among the most popular posts at my Facebook Movie Memory Time have been videos about vintage automobiles. From the 1930s thru 60s, Chevrolet produced dozens of cartoons, travelogs, comedies and docs about Chevys which were shown in movie theaters and schools. 

Now Movie Memories has put the best shorts into one 2-hour DVD that would make a great Christmas present! Watch excerpts here:
