But now I want to know how you pronounce 'Plaistow'. :)
I just got this one: Play/Stow. Further demo of the OP's genius.

I made that with a Sharpie oil-based paint marker.

Oh man I wish I could take credit for it, but Plaistow is on the pizza box! It is pronounced Plas (like plastic) - tow (rhymes with how/cow).

Reminds me of the "World's Smallest Matchbox" sets. Well done.

On the subjects of pizza and Car Wars, here is a variant for a scenario that may or may not work.

The scenario "The Taxi Driver" printed in The VIP of Gaming #2 in 1986 had players driving taxis, competing to pick up and deliver passengers.

My variant is "Pizza Delivery." Instead of picking up and delivering passengers, the players compete to deliver pizzas.

Perhaps there should be rules for the condition of pizzas at the time of delivery after the delivery vehicle has been in combat. The delivery driver wants to minimize combat to have the pizzas delivered on time and to prevent the pizzas from looking unappetizing to the customers.

The World's Smallest Matchbox playsets could be used as arena structures in the Plaistow Pizza Box Arena. The ramps to elevated sections of World's Smallest Matchbox playsets could be used as jumps. Great idea, 43Supporter.

You could use an Armored Mini-fridge as hotbox or you could go weird and use a modified Mine Flinger as a Pizza Flinger.
