The ones I found while poking around included an article of variants (cycles, spikes, linked weapons) and an article showing the new card art in the (then-)upcoming new printing.

I *thought* there was an article about variant cards. I know the Wiseman article mentioned an expansion, but it never materailized.

I so was looking forward to it-body armor & wheelguards would've been very handy.

Please can you tell me which issue had the variant cards? A print issue, or an online issue?

I've added the two articles to the list.

Hope this helps.

New Items

Uncle Albert's 2050 Catalog Supplement - Stickyfoam, Catalytic Spikes, Pyrophoric Oil, and others. Not free. I've asked for it to be changed.

As so much time has passed since they were published , is it possible for someone with the information to just post it on here ?

These items and rules WERE posted on a UK site around 2001 . Unfortunately the webmaster for that site has since died , so the information is now inaccessible . I did have printed copies , but can no longer find them
:-(

Not sure what the legal issues would be now , but after 7 years I'd hope they'd be a bit flexible .

Re: List of Car Wars Articles in Pyramid
 
No, they still own the copyright and thus posting the article would be illegal.

If you would like to see the 2050 article (ID# 1586) changed to be viewable for free like most SJG-related Pyramid Online articles, email SJG and ask. Two likely addresses:

pyramid@sjgames.com
webmaster@sjgames.com

Hope this helps.

Is it possible to get a link to the Spinal Mount weapons article added to this list?

Re: List of Car Wars Articles in Pyramid
 
Spinal Mounting was in ADQ 10-4, which is not in the Pyramid archives. You can purchase PDFs of all of the ADQs from e23.
