Pro Street is a style of street-legal custom car popular in the 1980s, usually built to imitate a Pro-street class race car. Pro Street cars should appear to be more at home on the drag strip than the street, while remaining street legal and not gutted like a Race Car or Bracket Race car. Typically called a Backhalf car.
Cars of this type always feature three of the following four modifications:
- A highly-modified, large capacity V8, V12, V10, V6, I6 engine.
- A narrowed rear axle coupled with oversized rear wheels (located within the wheelwells) for maximum grip and wheelie bars
- A stock floor pan from behind the front seats forwards is what separates it from a race car.
- A NHRA legal roll cage.
Cars of this type should remain modified from the firewall back but keep a full interior with windshield wipers, carpet and a stereo.
