Theme Tuesdays: Pro Touring

2

The recipe for a pro touring build, according to Pro-Touring.com, is simple;” Start with a classic muscle car and apply modifications that will make the car handle as good, or better than modern day sports cars.

Of course, realistically, there are no hard and fast rules as to what exactly qualifies for a pro touring build.  Generally speaking they are older cars –many of which people thought could never handle– that have been upgraded to the point where they handle far better than most are willing to give them credit for.

The also happen to look incredibly good sitting or dodging cones.
