Back in the 80's my group (6) used to play 'Car Wars'. Always had fun.

It's not too deep and focuses on driving, but Wreckage is very "mad-max" style and is relatively cheap, even after FFG's price hike

Lunatix Loop is probably close enough, if you can get your hands on one.

Just from the subject line alone, I have to agree with some of the other suggestions for Car Wars.

Don't poo-poo Thunder Road.

It is a bit on the light side, but it's a heckuva' lot of fun and there are copies on eBay all the time.




Dark Future isn't too bad either.

A harder to get game, but a lot of fun, is Battlecars, and its really hard to get expansion, Battlebikes.

Also, Highway 2000 is another game that, if you can find it, can be a lot of fun.

Task Force Games came out with a series of "Auto-Ventures" modules, which could be played with either of the above games, or with Car Wars:

TurboFire
Hell on Wheels
Ultraforce
Street Fighter
The Gauntlet
