Default Care Wars style games on Steam

I found a few games that feel like Car Wars and gives you that retro feel as well.
Blasted Road Terror
Convoy

thought I should share!

Huh. Now I want to see a Care Bears / Car Wars crossover.

That's a real nice find! The similarities weren't lost on at least one reviewer, too...

And I know it's a typo in the thread title, but I'm picturing a Care Bears kart fighter now, complete with "adult in a power wheels" scale vehicles straight out of Mad Max, goofy weapons, and all the scowls / teeth of those "Feisty Pet" stuffed toy things that get all ragepants-looking when you squeeze them...

I would pay $60 to buy a game that was a Car Wars game.
It would be an open world, progression game I could play with others.
I could build my car according to space, mass, cost and rarity. Also every time a car part is damaged or has traveled a certain distance, wear and tear is rolled. In other words, unless the part is of the best quality (usually at the expense of usefulness) it breaks down less often.
Anyways, Look at Convoy and create a Car Wars game we can play again as we did as kids!

Very funny . . . what a novel oxymoron Care Wars is.

My country will care for your people better than your country can take care of mine.

I can't wait for the arms race!

The local gaming con has _Fallout: Equestria_; this notion is not the weirdest I've come across.... :)
