That would be nice indeed.
There are so many good racing games out there. Street rod was one of the greater in the fact that you had maintenance of it to do. It would be nice if they made more varied tracks you could run instead of the old drag and road race.
A classic Street rod with all the details would be nice, but a game in the style of new racing games with the modifying and tuning would be great. Star wars Racer had a bit of this in the fact that you had to buy new parts, but there were no fiddling with putting it on yourself. You weren't tuning anything, not finding bargains and not losing your pod.
