Have you ever see the film The Great Race, directed by Blake Edwards and featuring Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, Larry Storch, and various other '60s-era comedians? With its combination of 1930s vehicles, rustic roadways, and a lengthy European road race, the film inevitably conjures joyous fantasies of quitting one's job and touring the countryside. It must be this exact feeling that LJN was striving for with its Dreamcast release of Spirit of Speed 1937. Similar to The Great Race, '30s roadsters, period scenery, and wacky antics abound. However, unlike the classic film, Spirit of Speed 1937 is neither inspiring nor endearing.
