Street Rod 1 is the first in the series of California Games, its quite alot like Street Rod 2, but in some aspects its not as good, first of all, the choice of cars isn't exactly as good as in the sequel and also performance of the game seems a little less better.

The plot of the game is quite simple, you buy used cars and race them for money or pink slips, the cars you are able to buy range in price and speed and reliability, the types of cars you can race are Bel-Air's, Vette's, Ford Fairlane's, Dodge Solara's, Oldsmobiles and T-Birds and the very impressive V8 Roadster. You also will be able to purchase used car parts also out of the newspaper's classifieds, you can buy spare parts such as new tyres, manifolds, engines, exhausts, carbies, mufflers, fuel injecters and tunnel rams. other things you can do to your purchased car is chop the roof and bumpers, and give it a new paint job, each will cost you a bit of money and prolly wont impact on the performance of the car too much.

When you start the game, you start off with $750 bucks, which is just enough to buy you a 2 door Chevy, or a Fairlane, which is good enough to start off with and be able to win small amounts of money to build the car up into a bit of a speed machine, sell it and buy something faster and more reliable like the V8 Roadster or a Vette which is a couple of grand compared to the 800 or so bucks for the Chevy. The types of races available to race in are the drag race, which can be for $10, $50 or just for kicks, or road race which is for $20, $100 or for pink slips, which is getting the other guy's car if you win.

When starting the game, you get the choice of ega/vga/cga/hercules/tandy graphics for graphics and adlib or normal for sound options, the only thing that could have been better about the game is maybe some good aussie cars, perhaps a Monaro!

chopping the roof and removing bumpers is weight reduction and therefore helps the car go that extra few miles an hour.

Pink Slips all the way. Till the king decides to talk to you.
Then Drag races till he appears in the Opponents list.
Grab your fastest car and enter the final race.  :-s
