street rod - my abandonware
What set the game apart from other racing games of the era (and even now) is the addition of gameworld: instead of letting you pick a car, then drive it in various tournaments, the game lets you live the life of a street rod lover in the '70s. Instead of winning the championship, your goal is beat the King and his black '63 Corvette. You can only afford an old car at the start, but as you win races, you will gradually be able to upgrade for better components and cars.
The car customization screen in Street Rod is undoubtedly the game's best feature, and one that hasn't been duplicated successfully since. You can replace engine and transmission, chop your roof for that open-air look, and strip the bumpers. You can even change the decals and color to personalize your hot rod.
After you find an opponent (from hanging out in front of a local fast food joint), the view shifts to a standard first-person view, with very good level of detail that rivals Accolade's Test Drive 1. You can drive a drag race or Mulholland race (along LA's famed scenic road of the same name), for money or with your car as the stake. The only "weak" point in the game, and this depends on personal preferences, is the fact that most races are very easy, and the King himself is not hard to beat. This obviously makes the game ideal for beginners, but experts will be able to finish it in a few sittings. The excellent customization options and solid gameplay more than make up for this, though, and make Street Rod one of the few racing games that you can play over and over again without getting bored.
I grew up with this game, and I remember playing it on my XT PC with hercules graphic card. Then I remember seeing part 2 on my friends home, on a c=128 with disk drive, and I thought, for some reason, that it looked more cute than the PC version, even if it was more slow overall to load and such.
I got into it again, not long ago, after a lifetime without touching it. I played the Amiga version, and I must say, it looks great but the controls are all over the place.
The PC version controls are a 1000 times better, but it doesn't have the music nor the graphics of the Amiga version.
"BUT almost unplayable, there was no way to win that game normally"
This game is very hard. When I was a child, me and my friend beat the king several times with the '63 Covette. Then my friend challenge me "Who can beat the king with the worst car" I did it with the Tbird, he did it with Pontiac silver streak, and then with other car, I think Dodge polara. We play this game whole summer.
Later I was beat the game one time in PC. Then I try million times to beat the Street Rod II but never succes.
I tried to play with Amiga version but not started in emulator :(
The ultimate best old game for petrolheads that had never had modern equivalent, which is a horribly sad thing. It has the feeling of the "american graffiti" movie, which is it mainly based on. The cars are beautiful, the fact you can upgrade and tune them even more. The sequel was great with more cars and upgrade possibilities, BUT almost unplayable, there was no way to win that game normally.
Sad that the project Street rod 3 of the early 2000s went nowhere.
But seriously, you want money for this? I downloaded it as free abandonware 20 years ago already, this is so vintage and mega-old, you cannot be serious. I really dont understand todays PC world.
Street Rod is nostalgia overload for me, maybe you also remember? We made a card game out of the classic video game and its on Kickstarter right now!
I LOVED this game when I got a (pirated) copy in '89. I played it to death. I could only win drag races, would crash and burn in anything else but it was so much fun to buy the cars and swap all the parts. Incidentally, there is a cheat. If you buy the 'Basic transportation' car listed in the paper, take out the engine and transmission, you can sell it for $6000 and basically buy the best car available.
Street Rod is available for a small price on the following websites, and is no longer abandonware. GOG.com provides the best release and does not include DRM, please buy from them! You can read our

Street Rod II is a game with enormous potential! I have spent many nights praying that someone makes a modernized version of this game, but so far, no software company has managed to do that! This game is certainily a classic, and first of its kind (being a sequel to Hot Rod).
You play a car mechanic. Starting out with no car and some money, you will have to find a suitable car using the ads in the paper. To earn more money for parts and new cars, you will have to race other drivers in the town.
There are 3 tracks available, one of which is a straight 1/4 mile drag race. You can race for money, or pink slips. This is also the worst aspect of the game as the racing graphics are simply awaful, and car handling is always the same. Unfortunately, this limits the car tuning to engine, tires, gearbox, aerodynamics and exhaust. Still, this is more than enough to keep the game interesting.
You can make numerous modifications to the engine, and there are many cars and car manufacturer parts available, so getting the most out of your car will be extremely fun and challenging. The goal of the game is to beat "The King". He has the best car (and chick) in the game :) Of course, once you get his car, the chick also comes in the package :) Unfortunately, the time to do this is limited, and that is also somewhat annoying.
So, what distances this game from a 5 point mark are the horrible driving graphics engine, the inability to modify suspension and handling and finally the time limit. Let me just mention that the sound is also pretty much terrible :)
