Until further notice there will be no development on Street Rod Online.

However I will post updates on other subjects like the continuing search for the Street Rod Car Data Disk.

  1. Oh, good to see that someone has picked up my childhood favorite game. (: Hope to see it continued soon.

    Btw, I don’t know if you know about that, but some group of enthusiasts are also working on Street Rod 3 at http://www.streetrod3.com You might want to go check it out.

    And can I also make a few car requests? (not neccessarily all of them)
    First, cars. Well, here in America we really love pickup trucks, and it kinda bugged me that there wasn’t a single one in Street Rod 1 or 2. I mean, they don’t have to be strictly work trucks, there are also modifications.

    Well, I’ll give you here an overall list of the pickup trucks that were available in the 1960s.
    GM ones were made by Chevrolet.

    First there was Advanced Design (1947-1955), that had 3100 for half-ton, 3600 for three quarter ton and 3800 for one full ton, but neither of them was offered with V8 engines (only straight-sixes), but I think there was also aftermarket.

    Then came Task Force, made 1955-1960. Models were 3100 for half-ton and 3600 for three quarter ton. And from the Street Rod engines, it was sold with the 283 ci V8.

    Task Force was later succeeded by C/K in 1960. C was rear- and K was all-wheel drive. C10/K10 was 1/2 ton, C20/K20 was 3/4 ton and C30/K30 1 ton. First C/K was produced from 1960 to 1966 and was available with straight-six engines and also both the 283 and 327 V8 engines from Street Rod 1.

    Second C/K was made from 1967 to 1972, so I think it would be relatively new for Street Rod 2’s 1969 setting. Again, it had straight-sixes, and V8s were 283, 307, 327, 350, 396, 402, but not the SR2’s 427.

    Then Chevy had the smaller El Camino. 1st generation was made from 1959 to 1960 and had the 239 ci straight-six or a 283 V8 and Impala’s 348 V8 engines. But that wasn’t successful and only around 14000 were sold.

    Second El Camino came in 1964 and was made thru 1967. It had the obvious Straight-6’s and V8’s were 283, 327 and 396.
    Third El Camino was made 1967-1972 and had 307, 350, 396 and 454 V8’s besides the Straight-6s.

    Ford started in 1948 with F-Series. First there were F-1 for ½ ton, F-2 for 3/4 ton and F-4 for 1 ton.

    In 1953 the second generation was now named F-100 for ½-ton, F-250 for 3/4 ton and F-350 for 1-ton. It was made from 1953 to 1956, and the model designations carried on to 3rd F-Series (1957-1960), 4th (1961-1966) and 5th (1967-1972, again brand-new for SR2)

    Ford also had the smaller Ranchero, El Camino’s competitor. 1st gen was made 1957-1959 only with 297 V8 engine. And until 1969, there were three next generations of Rancheros.

    As for Chrysler, they had Dodge B-series from 1948 to 1953, C-series from 1954 to 1960 and D-series from 1961 on. They were designated again D100 for ½ ton, D200 for 3/4 ton and D300 for one ton. 1st gen was made 1961-1964 and 2nd gen 1965-1971.

    And I’d also love to see more Pontiacs than just the Silver Streak. For example, there was the Chieftain from 1955-1958 with V8s and around the same time, the Bonneville. I personally aren’t a fan of the ’60s-70s Pontiacs that much.

    And also, some larger cars. Yeah, they were supposed to be more like luxury models, but I’d love to see some of them too.
    From Ford: Lincoln Continental. There weren’t just the Kennedy’s infamous car, but also some 2-door hardtops/convertibles, made in 3 generations – 1956-1957, 1958-1960 and 1961-1969.

    And from GM there was another of my favorites: 1959-1960 Buick Electra. There was the 2-door hardtop as standard Electra, and convertible as longer Electra 225.

    Also Cadillacs, maybe Eldorado or Coupe de Ville.
