    pro street alive and well

    my profession is in the sign industry and this past wk end i was up
    on a 60ft sign installing new panels for a body shop, when i felt the
    lift vibrat and heard the sounds of the drag strip. I look down and
    there before me was the convoy of pro-street cars around 10 just
    cruisin slow and they were all beautiful big meat radical cam lift
    cars, the one that stuck out was a bright orange 70 malibu with
    white stripes, and boy they all looked like they were having the time
    of their life, lets cruise and spread the love :wink:

    I like hearing stories like this. I am very anxious to be out driving for the summer
    It would be nice if I could find guys around my area with similar cars for cruising

    all the pro-streeters. very nice, respectable hotrods, makes me want
    to go and put a bigger cam in the family car, go out for ice cream. :wink:

    I really enjoyed building and driving them prostreet cars when I was younger but I lacked the disipline needed to keep my foot out of it and many speeding tickets and many a night at the illegal street races narrowly avoiding capture by the police sent me packing, so I took my passion to the track and never looked back. Dont get my wrong now I love seeing them bad a$$ street cars and more power to ya, I'll just smile and give a thumbs up while I'm driving by in my big American made suv like it has a egg under the throttle pedal.

    Here is my Pro Street that I built in 1988. It has a L-88 427 that "had" a 6-71 blower but she launched to the moon.

    If a 5 lb hammer can't fix it,it must be electrical
    Keep the shiney side up! 8)
