Compact Cars:
'82 Daisan 420x
The 420x represents Daisan's commitment to providing a truly high performance compact sports car that is still affordable. The classic front engine, rear wheel drive design provides effective weight distribution and handling.

'32 Deuce Coupe
When Hank Phaedra introduced the "Model S" in 1932 he had no idea that this car, like no other, would become the most modified, customized model ever. It ultimately became the definitive hot rod. It's light. It's fast as $#!+.

'73 Phaedra Pony
This car is crap. Some people put big engines and big guns on them. The best thing about the Pony is being able to say, "Hey charky, I whupped your ass in a PONY!"

'80 VMW 813s
The VMW has become very popular in recent years among the young and upwardly mobile. It is somewhat fast and handles tolerably well. The best thing about VMW is their marketing department.

'82 Fiarello 803GHBs
This model was made famous by the hit TV series Magram Private Dick, set in tropical Hawaii. In Magram PD the lead Character drives a 803GHBs while fighting the bad guys. The car performs wonderfully despite being somewhat fragile.

'82 De Landau
The De Landau's body is made of beautiful brushed stainless steel making it quite resilient. The car is consequently quite heavy when compared to other sports cars of comparable size.

'81 Messernacht
Perhaps the premiere German car manufacturer, Messernacht honed its skills while producing fighter aircraft during WW2. Messernacht's race division has earned themselves continual victories in the European circuits.

'79 Greens-Queen
The Greens-Queen M666 represents the very latest in fairway mobility. It's gasoline powered motor, dual bag-rack, all wheel suspension and all-weather cover provide the golfer or security professional all the golf-cart magic they can handle.

Mid-size Cars:
'68 Phaedra Palomino
Phaedra Motors has dominated the "pony car" market since the release of the first Palomino in 1964. The car's moderate performance and cheap price tag equates to big sales for this model. What this car lacks in handling it more than makes up for in acceleration and durability.

'69 Courcheval Cavera
The Cavera may well be the king of "pony cars". Courcheval motors is committed to offering its consumers well built, reliable, high performance cars and back them with numerous "race type" factory upgrades.

'73 Courcheval Manta
A true sports car, the Manta incorporates modern race design in every new model. This model's fiberglass body offers little protection for the auto combatant. However some of the greatest villains and vigilantes swear by it.

'70 Courcheval El Paseo
The handling characteristics of a sports car and the hauling capacity of a pickup truck... This may very well be the perfect car.

'82 Potomac Pan Am
Created by Squire Incorporated as an advanced test vehicle to counter the perceived auto-terrorist threat. Early attempts to fit the car with an artificial intelligence module failed utterly when the AI became hostile to the test drivers.

'82 Brunetti Perrigrina
Perhaps the pinnacle of Italian sports car performance, the Perrigrina represents the state of the art in automotive design. Like any finely tuned instrument, this car performs immaculately but does not respond well to stress.

'81 Picard Reliable J
Calling this car "Reliable" is at the same time true and laughable. The general over design of the car's internals results in a robustness well suited to auto combat. The same lack of finesse translates into generally unreliable internal components and mechanical elements.

Full-size Cars:
'69 Dover Lightning V/X
In many minds Dover is the undisputed king of muscle. The lightning is strong and whip quick off the line. It was chosen to be the star vehicle in TV's hit show the Durks of Blizzard County, the story of two cretins who get their hands on a powerful car with which they break laws.

'82 Courcheval Royale
The Royale is Corcheval's full-size sedan. It comes with a variety of engines and seats six in relative comfort. If you need to fight crime and haul the family this is the car for you.

'82 Courcheval Cruiser
Based on the Royale, this car is sold as a police cruiser worldwide. It is engineered with the best internals to handle the rigors of police work. Though, it is questionable whether or not the added weight is worth it.

'50 Picard Kustom
Hand customized in 1953, this one-of-a-kind has the following modifications: Its lowered, nosed, decked, shaved, and the frame is C'd in the rear. It sports a modified original flat head v-8 with Ardun heads and Offy intake with three 97's.

'59 Adirondac Lisbon
Adirondac has been the luxury leader in the American automotive industry since the start of this century. The '59 Lisbon Coupe D'gras is regarded by many to be a superb example of Adirondack style.

'81 Phaedra Estate Wagon
The popularity of the "estate wagon" or station wagon has swelled in recent years. It's versatility in cargo carrying makes it a good choice for the auto-vigilante who needs a little extra punch in the weapon department.

'82 Dover Stag Pickup
Dover's line of pickups enjoy a reputation of durability and power. The 1982 Stag one ton exhibits the performance and pulling power you would expect while showing off all the styling enhancements expected of a modern automobile.

'40 Phaedra Pickup
Quite small by truck standards, this pre-war Phaedra pickup is very sought after by hot rodders. It displays classic pre-unitized design and elegant curves. Take care with this one -- It's twice as old as you.

'80 Phaedra Clydesdale
Phaedra's line of 4x4s is called the Clydesdale. This vehicles gearing and suspension are perfect for off road applications causing it to suffer in the top end and on the pavement. Use this vehicle if you expect to be without asphalt.

'81 Courcheval Street Van
Good if you like to bring your bed into combat.

'82 Moth Cab-over
This is the standard Moth big rig "dog nose" hauler. The "tractor" can be fitted to a trailer or a rigid chassis for lighter duty. The big advantage with the semi in auto combat is weight. If you don't like what is in your way don't worry - it don't matter.

'82 Moth Tanker
This is the standard Moth cab hooked up to rigid liquid tanker chassis.

'82 Moth Loadmaster
This is the standard Moth cab hooked up to rigid cargo box chassis.

'82 Moth Dudehauler
The Dudehauler 9000 is Moth's full size Bus. Versions include school bus, municipal bus, corrections institutional transport and many others.

'80 Drill King MoleMaster
The MoleMaster is made for deep mining operations. In standard configuration it is well suited for drilling into any sub-igneous material including slate, schist, gneiss, and marble as well as limestone and sandstone.

'65 Charpanet 3WC
The Charpanet 3WC is without doubt the most prolific model the French automotive industry has ever produced. The car's profoundly underpowered engine is offset by its durability, light weight and innovative suspension design.

'69 Lansell 800cc
Popular as an inexpensive race platform, the Lansell 800cc, and larger 1200cc cousin, is a fast, well handling automobile. What makes the Lansell unique is its size, freakin' small. This car is small, Charky.

Stein PappKarton*
The Stein PappKarton is manufactured in East Germany in a refrigerator factory or something. *At Stein Motorvorks model years have no meaning, as the design does not change from year to year - or if it does, no one can tell.
Slug Throwers:
The Wessel and Ripper 52 caliber Light Machine Gun The Wessel and Ripper 52 caliber light machine gun was developed in the 1950s as a standard issue general purpose machine gun for the US military. This weapon is used widely by auto combatants due to its small size, availability, durability, and general effectiveness. The weapon is gas operated, belt fed and air cooled. Its rate of fire is 600rpm.

The Bruding-Nanger 9.47mm Heavy Machine Gun
The Bruding-Nanger 9.47mm Gatling heavy machine gun uses the multi barrel Gatling principal to fire a relatively large round at a very high rate of fire. The weapon's general bulk, complexity and prohibitive cost are more than made up for by its devastating firepower. The 9.47mm Gatling heavy machine gun is air cooled and belt fed. The action of its six barrel drum is electrically operated. The rate of fire is a whopping 6000rpm.

The GunCo Homekeeper Cannon
The GunCo Homekeeper 42mm cannon packs a wallop. Various versions of the Homekeeper have been used in naval and land-based applications since its appearance in the late 30s. It can be used in single and multiple barrel mountings. However, most auto combatants use only single barrel setups due to the weapon's relatively large ammo diameter and recoil characteristics. The gun is very reliable in the field and is relatively accurate. A major drawback of the gun is its slow rate of fire.

Self-Propelled Projectiles:
The Fire-Rite Unguided Rocket
The Fire-Rite unguided rocket from Narladyne Systems is primarily used in a close range car-to-car role. The rockets are designed to be carried in a "pod" and are usually single launched to conserve ammunition, however some drivers have been known to "hot-box" the entire pod at once. Fire-Rites are fin-stabilized, each opening after launch. Each pod contains 50 rockets. The payload is usually high explosive however armor piercing and anti-personnel versions do exist.

The Lockwell Global AIM-Nein Infrared Guided Missile
The Lockwell Global AIM-Nein is a tried and true auto combat weapon. Developed originally to perform in the air-to-air, infrared or "heat seaking" role during the US conflict in Thailand during the late sixties the AIM-Nein now enjoys use in many modern armies around the globe. Although the missile's systems are complex and its airframe quite large, its kill-to-cost ratio remains within acceptable limits to any "funded" auto combatant. The AIM-Nein has been altered only slightly in its newer car-to-car role with the addition of a ground avoidance module and a more sensitive exhaust profile sensor.

4U Propulsion's 'Dr. Radar' radar guided missile
4U Propulsion's 'Dr. Radar' radar guided missile is well suited to the car-to-car role. This missile requires an active radar "lock" on the target's ignition signature to function. Once fired with a successful lock the missile will home in on the target using the target's ignition signal. The lock can be broken by some forms of electronic interference such as "E-mag" shielding or "scrambler" electronics. The target can also turn off its ignition to evade lock. The Dr. Radar carries a large payload and a direct hit is quite devastating. The weapon's astronomical cost and massive weight prevent it from being widely used. Its size coupled with vehicle space restrictions usually dictate that it be used alone at the cost of other smaller weapons.

Liquid Throwers:
Charwell-Hurtzer of North America - FX-21 Fire-Fry Flame Projector
Charwell-Hurtzer of North America's FX-21 Fire-Fry Flame Projector has been adapted from its normal role in riot control by many industrious mechanics to work well in the car-to-car role. The weapon is very effective at close range but suffers dispersion problems at medium range and does not work to any capacity at longer ranges. Damage from projected fire has the added benefit of being persistent - meaning it will continue to be effective even after the "damage event" is over.

Narladyne Systems - CHIP Karpoon
The Narladyne Systems corporation developed Karpoons expressly for auto combat. A Karpoon is a specialized weapon capable of delivering and attaching a payload to the outer surface of a target car. In the case of the CHIP (Car-launched Hyper-caustic Inhalant Projectile) Karpoon a minute needle pierces the outer skin of the car and injects a caustic gas which causes the driver to flee the car. The gas cylinders are large and therefore the ammo count is low. This weapon is effective at "defooliating" a target car.

Narladyne Systems - HaVIK Karpoon
The Narladyne Systems corporation developed Karpoons expressly for auto combat. A Karpoon is a specialized weapon capable of delivering and attaching a payload to the outer surface of a target car. In the case of the HaVIK (High Voltage Ignition Killer) Karpoon a large capacitor delivers an electrical discharge to the car momentarily interrupting the ignition and all other electronic onboard systems. The effect is only momentary but often lasts long enough to provide opportunity to inflict further damage.

Narladyne Systems - MaGMA Karpoon
The Narladyne Systems corporation developed Karpoons expressly for auto combat. A Karpoon is a specialized weapon capable of delivering and attaching a payload to the outer surface of a target car. In the case of the MaGMA (Magnetic Guidance Missile Attractor) Karpoon a successful hit on a target's car will cause any currently airborne and subsequentialy launched missiles to loose lock on their intended targets and be guided to the victim of the Karpoon attack. This weapon is particularly effective when used by an organized team of attackers for obvious reasons.

West Valley Kustom and Marine - Oil Dropper
Lex Stein West Valley Kustom and Marine in Chatsworth, CA manufactures a beautiful oil dropping system used by many of the best auto combatants. Lex Stein and his employees still make each unit by hand and use only the highest quality hardware, gaskets, and pumps. Lex also builds combat powerboats for aqua-villains and aqua-vigilantes throughout California and the world.

Charwell-Hurtzer - CH18 Lava-Boy Fire Dropper
Charwell-Hurtzer pretty much cornered the market when they came out with the FG18 Lava-Boy Fire Dropper. No other fire dropping mechanism in existence compares when it comes to ease of use, ease of cleaning, reliability and spray pattern customization. And if safety is an issue to you, it has the only UL listed napalm storage system in the world!

Bruging-Nanger - BM21 Standard Type Proximity Mine
In addition to their well known line of automatic combat machine guns Bruging-Nanger has introduced a new line of anti-car munitions. New for '82 is the BM21 Standard Type Proximity Mine. Changes from last year's BM20a include a stainless steel fuse case and a far more sensitive personnel "sniffer" for those pesky stealthy pedestrians. Safety features include arm-in-place trip circuits and what Bruding-Nanger calls a "finite arming window" which causes the mine to detonate after an onboard timer runs out. Let's keep those normals safe!

West Valley Kustom and Marine - Paint Sprayer
Lex Stein of West Valley Kustom and Marine in Chatsworth, CA is at it again with his new paint sprayer. The device is designed to coat the target car's windshield in paint - momentarily obscuring the driver's view. Of course the paint wares off quickly but it sure gives the vigilante in a pinch the valuable time he needs to get away.

Contact Weapons:
Dover Motors Weapon Division - Structo-Bumper
Dover Motors Weapon Division is still offering the venerable Structo-Bumper. This years model has improved mount points for more reliable collision damage transfer. As always, the Structo-Bumper, still imparts excellent protection from frontal and oblique collisions while transferring the maximum amount of damage to the target vehicle.

Dover Motors Weapon Division - Carbide Cutters
Dover Motors Weapon Division recommends the Carbide Cutters to any auto combatant whose primary tactic is ramming or "contact engagement". No other car combat weapon delivers more damage during a collision. Period. This years model is no longer engine driven due to the reoccurring problem of drive belt breakage. As a plus - The new electric motors are very reliable and are no longer RPM dependent. However, the whole package is somewhat more bulky.

Lobbed Weapons:
GunCo - 82mm Mortar
The Gun Company low velocity 82mm mortar has been adapted to perform in the car-to-car role. The mortar's firing trajectory is dramatically arched making it useful for indirect fire applications such as shelling into zones of fire for suppression purposes. It is ideal for firing at targets from behind hardened positions, over structures, into depressions, etc. The shaped charge within the shell is very effective against normal automotive armor.

Energy Weapons:
Andersen Semiconductor - L5000 Industrial Cutting Laser
The L5000 Cyanide-Beryllium Cutting Laser is used in many industrial applications including CNC milling, metal hydride etching, tele-dildonic appliance fabrication, and micro-ferrite diatomic ripple effect harmonically sub-sampled xeno-magnetic materials bonding applications. It is also pretty good at tearing the crud out of enemy cars.

Lockwell Global - L.A.R.S. Up-link
Be very careful with this one. Its really very secret and is used by the US military and CIA and who knows who else to do things like cold-blooded murder, surgical threat neutralization, and general global "law enforcement". L.A.R.S. stands for Light Amplifying and Reflecting Satellite and as one can imagine is quite powerful, quite messy and leaves huge stains. If you still don't get the picture - remember when you were a child and you burned ants with a magnifying glass? Well its like that only much bigger and your target is the ant.

Narladyne Systems - Sure-Hot 350 Flare Launching System
The Narladyne Systems - Sure-Hot 350 Flare Launching System is the gold standard of Infrared countermeasures. It's small size, reliability, and inexpensive cost make it without doubt the countermeasure of choice when dealing with pesky heat seekers. When an AIM-Nein is inbound and your bumper is to the wall you know who to call!

Corcheval Motors Countermeasures - Threat-be-gone Chaff Ejector
Corcheval Motors has decided to enter into the auto-munitions manufacturing arena with it's new Threat-Be-Gone Chaff Ejector. The Threat-Be-Gone unit is designed to defeat radar guided and Ignition seeking threats such as the widely used (and quite deadly) Dr. Radar missile. The Threat-Be-Gone is simple in design and easy to service.

North American Dental - N02
N02, or Nitrous Oxide, is a colorless gas which when mixed with air and gasoline in suspension causes a cooling effect and an increase in gas/air compression within an engine. The result is more horsepower which means more speed and torque. The gas can be obtained inexpensively from North American Dental under catalog number 4500-N02-M005. This stuff is also great for parties.

Corcheval Motors Countermeasures - Fire-X fire extinguisher
Corcheval Motors Countermeasues offers their Fire-X fire extinguisher system as an option for new models and also sells a kit for retrofitting an existing car. No auto-combatant should be without one.

NASA Home Rocketry Division - SuCCLeR (Self Contained Car Launching Rocket)
If you think NASA is only about huge orbital vehicles and space exploration then you are mistaken. NASA makes some of the most dynamic, reliable and reusable products for home rocketry in the world. Take for instance the "SuCCLeR or Self Contained Car Launching Rocket system. This set of highly efficient solid rocket boosters straps securely to your car's under carriage and allow you and your vehicle to literally lift off. The thrill of blast off is no longer had only by astronauts and TV stars!
