Description: 

Street Rod is a racing video game developed by P.Z.Karen Co. Development Group and Logical Design Works, based on an original concept by Magic Partners and published by California Dreams for Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64 and DOS. Street Rod exclusively featured American Muscle Cars, specifically those from GM, Ford, and Chrysler.

Street Rod was released in 1989 and takes place in the year 1963. Equipped with a garage and a small amount of cash ($750), you buy a used car from the classifieds in a newspaper and embark on a journey to rise through the ranks by winning races against other racers. Using money you earn through races you can modify your car and eventually winning enough races earns you the right to challenge The King for his position.
Gameplay

The player starts off on the garage, where cars and parts may be purchased from the newspaper. New parts that are purchased must be installed by the player by entering the hood of or going under the car and then removing a series of screws to remove parts of the engine and transmission. Then, these parts must be re-installed in order and the bolts replaced, otherwise the car will be undrivable. To install tires, the car must be jacked up. While racing, the car will eventually run out of fuel, which the player must obtain from the gas station.

The player will proceed from the garage to the local diner in order to find some competition to race. Races take place on either a dragstrip (drag race option) or an open country road. Wagers on the drag races can be set from "Just for kicks!" (no wager) to $10 and $50. On the road race wagers can be set from $25 to $100 and "pink slips" (the winner receives the loser's car). When the race starts, the player must wait for a signal to be given to go or else they forfeit the race. Crashing during the race will either total your car, or require you to pay a fee in order to get it fixed. Also, they may fine you during a pink slip race. During the road race you will also get chased by police and ticketed $75 for breaking the speed limit. The challenge is to beat The King in a road race. If you win, you get the King's car and girlfriend, and you become the new King.
