I have been going through stuff to sell on Ebay and came across a bunch of my old minis that have not seen the light of day for more than 20 years. I figured since Fury Road is coming out this week...
....I would post some pics of Car Wars minis I made when the game came out. Here is the Green Machine, carved out of balsa and mounted on card stock. It's to scale, i.e., 1 inch long.
This is the Grey Ghost....this time carved out of pink insulation foam. Car Wars, the only game that took 1 hour of real time to play 1 second in the game. It was that or Gilligan's Island.
Finally, this is my friend Mike the Mangler's car, a beautiful brown Town & Country wagon. It was fun to put ourselves in the game and run over pedestrians (they had guns!). I almost threw these away. They are tiny, so that's something....There is something cool and nostalgic about them. I got 5 bucks for my Car Wars game on Ebay. Enjoy!
