those are some good looking rigs, both novas here are what i think of when you say "pro street"

saying most pro street cars are posers, is like saying all honda cars with a wing and big exhaust tip are drifting cars

agreed. I love minitubbed cars though- more traction without screaming "Look at my fat rollers! I think I'm Dyno Don Nicholson, I think I'm Dyno Don Nicholson, I think I'm Dyno Don Nicholson". While some pro street cars can run as fast as the looks imply, I really would rather pass up on the attention that huge rear tires get.

This is what the HAMB calls a pro street, I don't really give a rats A Z Z what they call it, to be honest with you,,
I'm building it as a street rod that resembles a gasser,

If you really want to look at Pro Street; you need to look into the 70s 'Street Freaks' to see where they came from. I can remember thumbing through some of my Dads old HR mags and there was this challenger that wasn't all candy paint and chrome. It was owned by a kid (steve lisk) who worked for a drag race team and he was adapting all kinds of then-new pro stock gear onto his car. It was so insane for the time. Then there was the early Jack Roush street race cars.

You also need to look at Dobbertin's cars; and (my fav) Gottleib's 'Big Red' 69 Camaro which sort of bridged the gap from Pro Street to todays Pro Touring movement.

Take a peek here:

GOTTA be tubbed

That is a great link, thanks. #20 on the list is mentioned as possibly the first official pro street car but how can one say that?,,,nice that it happens to be a 67 tubbed Nova

When I think pro street if nothing else it's gotta be tubbed baby tubbed and I would say a Big Block,,,, no such thing as a small block pro street car

By the way,,,those are some really kick arse projects there ladds!,,,,keep them pics coming
