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 (tubbed).
Cars of this type always feature two of the following three modifications:
- A highly-modified, with supercharger or turbo, large capacity V8, V12, V10, V6, I6 engine.
- A narrowed rear axle coupled with oversized rear wheels & at least an 11" wide tire (located within the wheelwells) for maximum grip and wheelie bars
- An 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 working lights.
