Default PC Video games that could have been great

Title: StreetRod
Developer: California Dreams
Circa: 1980 something

This was the coolest street racing game for its time. You got to buy your initial car from the paper. I'm talking 60's cars. You'd race for cash and eventually work your way up to racing for pink slips in the Los Angeles Aquaducts or Muholland Drive. There was even drag nights on Wednesdays (game had a calendar).

The thing I liked about this game so much was that you actually built up your cars yourself. It wasn't just "buy upgrade" like Gran turismo. You had to look through the paper and make sure you bought parts that would fit. I.e. Chrysler parts wouldn't fit in a Ford chassis nor work with Ford components. once you bought the parts you would have to bolt them on with the mouse and connect wires/harnesses. You could even tune your car.

Anyhow, Supposedly California Dreams was going to remake the game with updated graphics and call it Streetrod2000 but it never went through

My final car in the original was a 1967 SS Camaro with a Blower. It had 3.73 gears and ran 1/4 mile in 9.6 seconds
