In the bigger cities, I was wondering if I could find out what the congressional district boundaries were at a street or precinct level basis. Some districts I would be interested in seeing would be the 1983-1993 version of TX 3 (Dallas and Collin), TX 5 (east Dallas), TX 24 (Dallas, Fort Worth and areas in between), TX 7 (west Houston), TX 18 (inner city Houston), and TX 20 (inner city Santonio)

Are you looking for historical data only or also current information?

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/findyourreps.xpd is great for the current districts, but you may already know that...

Have you tried Dave Bradlee's redistricting utility?  It will give you exactly what you want.

Oh, you apparently want maps from previously census periods I see in the 1980's and 1990's. I would not know about that.

Fortunately for redistricting buffs, Texas has a good archive of previous districts, all the way back to 1846.

I remember hearing that in the early 90s, Martin Frost did exactly what DeLay did only parties reversed: convince the legislature (which was then 60% dem) to draw the map to favor democrats. Difference was was that it was when you were supposed to redraw it and not mid-decade like DeLay.
