Thanks for the IM I would love to share some input on my build and!
Unlike others i say get out the cutting tools this car will be biiiitchin ecs with a blown big block and be worth more with that running gear and pro streeted will be the ticket to get this thing to hook up and keep in mind these cars do not weight that much at all.
Should be an awesome builld.

Thanks Pro. I'll get in touch with you too.

For what it's worth, attended the NW Goodguys rodrun yesterday in Puyallup, Washington and there had to be at least 25 ProStreet cars there. Some I had seen before but many many I never had. The ProStreet trend is still very much alive up here. There were a handful of very cool gassers but not as many as in years past as well as the stereotypical RatRods.

I'll post up some pics in a bit

Pro streets' not drivable every day?? Take a look at this one. It probably has more miles in the rain than most show cars have in the sun in their life time.

There are 10 streetrods in front and 10 behind me in the rain shot. 9 hours of it.

We cruise the back roads every week. Rain or shine. There are a number of pro streets in the group.

Oh yes you better be able to run 87 gas too 'cause that's all that's available at some stations......besides diesel. haha

If you are considering building a 2nd car into a p/s i have a '41 chevy coupe that I want to sell. I bought it to use it for parts but had I cut pieces off of it, it would be not much more than scrap. Might be a good base to start with.

Damn, I can only hope to have cars as nice as you guys. As far as the streetability, I talked to a number of guys last weekend and they thought their cars drove great. In fact, one guy also have a 32 Ford roadster with a solid axle up front and parrallels bars and coilovers in the back and he said it MII front ended prostreeter was more comfortable to drive.

I'm gonna go for it and will like be picking all of your minds for ideas
