The Corvette Anthology 2004 CD-ROM

REVIEWING STAND

(re-printed from Vette Magazine, October 2004)
 

Have you ever wondered what year Corvette might appear on a Russian stamp or maybe what a right-hand drive ZR-1 looks like? Do you remember the first C4 commercial to ever appear on television but had no idea that the "radio-delete" option removed $331 from the overall price of an ’84? Or maybe you’re one of the few, the proud, the "lucky enough" to own a Callaway Twin Turbo but had no idea the Corvette Limited Edition Ski Boat that came equipped with a Callaway 383? These fun facts and much, MUCH more can be realized by doing little more than sitting down in front of your computer and installing The Corvette Anthology 2004 CD-ROM by HI-Tech Software.

Available for the Windows operating systems, The Corvette Anthology 2004 is to computers what the Corvette: Fastest Fifty Years set is for DVD players. Filled with vast amounts of Corvette-abilia, such as 18 multimedia movies which include original commercials and the '53s introduction, Hl-Tech Software has gone that extra mile to make your experience a pleasant one by shining a little light on every model year from the beginning to 2004. With just a click of the mouse, you can get a detailed list of what options were available each year, a Corvette Identification Guide which will help you identify Vettes by those little things that separated them from each other, and more photos than you can shake a roll of film at over 1,800 actually! But that's hardly scratching the surface. K. Scott Teeters' Illustrated Corvette Series comes included, as do several pieces of usable clipart. Your favorite model year is at your fingertips with an easy-to-use menu, as are the stories about the very people who helped this fine American sports car take shape from dream to prototype (also included) and into a reality.

My personal experience with The Corvette Anthology 2004 was a positive one. While I felt that the "sound effects" were a little unneeded since most of them were not even Corvette related, the CD-ROM was nothing short of a homerun, regardless. At worst, I felt that some of the photography needed reorganization, and a few came off as needing some better lighting and a re-shoot; this is something most of you wouldn't even notice. I really have no complaints about The Corvette Anthology 2004 and feel that this little slice of Corvette heaven will give me hours of informative enjoyment. So, if you're looking to add to your growing library or need a gift for the upcoming holidays, The Corvette Anthology 2004 is a sure thing.
