Now you guys are confusing me!

Today a "Gasser" can not be a "race only" car, because there is no current Gas Coupe Sedan class today ...and nostalgia racing is not current as far as the progress in race car development. It is just a nostalgic tribute to the past. ....(which I attend as often as possible.) :-)

If a Pro Street... which evolved as a streetable Pro Stocker... is for going around corners... then a streetable version of a gasser must be for going around corners... right?

Okay... back to the original question....

What is today's modern Gasser? I feel that "in spirit" it is Pro Mod. But somebody will say the specs are different....... so since there is no specific class with the same specs.... wouldn't the answer be "there is no modern day Gasser"?

I'm still confused!

What about the NMCA pro street class though, its like Pro Mod but using only gasoline? I think "in spirit" the NMCA Pro Street is closer to the Gassers but thats just me.
I think the other guy meant Pro Touring which is meant for corners.
