Re: TC we have PT wheres the Pro Street

I'm pretty sure the Pro-Street forum is located in the year 1992. Got a time machine?

J/K by the way, not looking to start a PT vs PS thread.

Re: TC we have PT wheres the Pro Street

Pro street is a heads up racing class, anything else is poser street......
Pro touring is just the next fad to go out of style.....

J/K, to each thier own.

Re: TC we have PT wheres the Pro Street

Hey - I believe there is still a place for Pro Street and we should consider a section, or at the very least, some discussion on the topic -- I happen to still like that style car, and if you check my signature, you'll see I used to own one. It was fast and a lot of fun to drive (around town only!)

Re: TC we have PT wheres the Pro Street

I think pro-street is cool. If a car is cool, it's cool, no matter what its purpose is.

Pro-touring/g-machines isn't a fad, it's just the modern term for hot rodding. Doing EFI swaps, adding overdrive transmissions, and making a car fun to drive will never go out of style.

I 100% agree with that, make model or type cool is cool

However I don't really care for poser cars though, 13 second pro street cars with a tube chassis and pro touring cars with 22" rims that look like a matchbox car, but thats just my opinion.
As for the Pro touring / fad thing, pro street was modern hot rodding too in the 80's, crazy paint and straight axles were modern hot rodding in the 60's, imports are modern hot rodding of current times arguably, I still call 'em a fad. To me if it's not stock appearing it's going to fall into the fad category eventually.
They all may have started out as something real to begin with, but when it became one guy trying to have bigger tubs and wider tires or wheels that are unrealistically big, or for that matter when the phrase "pro street" or "pro touring", "G machine" or whatever was coined, it became a fad IMO.
But hey, if all our cars looked the same, what fun would that be?

Thumbs up Re: TC we have PT wheres the Pro Street

I am glad there are some of us still alive. Prostreet just catches my eye more than pro touring. If I want to tour I'l by a late model for a lot less than what I put in my junk.I guess will mark this down to different strokes. Lets go PROSTREETERS and get a pro street forum I would be in there all the time.:thumbsupI think my posts would go up to three a day.

Re: TC we have PT wheres the Pro Street

Can you have both ?

I love Prostreet...really love it....but it's hard to register a PS car in Australia.

I also love Pro-touring....

So I compromised.

I'm building a 68 Camaro
632 BBC (over 800Hp) - may get blown later
Minitubbed (28" Diameter 325 drag radials on rear)
17" billet rims
13" Disc brakes all round
4 Link coilover rear
Art Morrison from sub frame
Interior will be all leather 4 buckets and yeah it will have power steering, air con and a stereo.

Is it a Pro-Stour ?

Re: TC we have PT wheres the Pro Street

Everybody, just drive / build what you like and who cares who likes it or doesn't. Who are you building it for anyway? I Personally am a PT person for the looks, you can turn and they are fast as well. Hell, you can even go fast in a turn...lol. I wouldn't object (at all) to a pro-street forum, just might not be for everybody, just as PT is not for everybody. Point being...it's yours, do what you like with it!!!

P.S. Pro-Touring is not a fad!

Re: TC we have PT wheres the Pro Street

Everybody has there ruthers I'd ruther see Prostreet and I was just wondering if there would be the posability that a direct link would be available. Sit a prostreet and a protouring next to one another and see what happens.So I ask this question wheres the prostreet forum. If any car lover agrees let me know.

Re: TC we have PT wheres the Pro Street

^^Not wanting get into a pissing match here but; that is a pretty bold statement. there are plenty of very high HP TT (under the hood) cars that i'm sure would not flinch at the site of a pro-street car.
