If Wally Elder was striving for perfection in his recently completed Daytona Pro Street build, we’d say he nailed it!
“I’ve been interested in cars since I got my first Hot Wheel,” tells Elder. “And from there, my dad played a major role because he was so into cars. He even had a ’36 Ford that was featured in Hot Rod Magazine in 1958.” The apple obviously didn’t fall far from the tree and soon Wally found himself immersed in car culture and wrenching on his own stuff. By the early 1990s Elder wanted to put his name to something special, and at the same time the massive Pro Street movement was in full swing, so what better style to build. Being modeled after Pro Stock and Pro Mod drag cars, Elder decided to try his hand at a serious Pro Street project that would pay tribute to its racing roots, but not just any car would do.
