"...[Pro-Street] was the perfect thing to paint. Great size. Great subtext. Great reality. Great thing that actually got painted out there, out there in real life. I mean I didn't have to make this shit up. It was there. Teenagers knew it. It got 'teen-aged;' Primed. Flaked. Striped. Bondo-ed. Lacquered. Nine coats. Sprayed. Numbered. Advertised on. Raced. Fucking Steve McQueened" (R. Prince quoted in "In the Picture: Jeff Rian in Conversation with Richard Prince," R. Brooks, J. Rian and L. Sante (eds.), Richard Prince, London, 2003, p.23).
