The Pro Street look dominated the show. We could probably count on one hand the number of Pro Touring cars we saw the entire weekend. Whether or not you like the aesthetic, it was certainly interesting to be around this many Pro Street builds, and one of the wildest is Greg Carrasca’s 1987 Chevy Sprint. He bought the car for $75 about 10 years ago with the intention of building it this way. For a while, he had a small-block in the engine compartment but eventually upgraded to a 454, most recently adding the 14-71 supercharger. A TH350 trans and narrowed truck 12-bolt round out the drivetrain. Greg boasted that the whole rear axle is only 27 inches wide between the 33x21.5 slicks. He works at Metalcrafters in Mammoth, Illinois, a company specializing in chassis building. Owner Kim Gough told us the Pro Street movement never died in the Midwest.
