“I want a pink car!”

I ran across a find at the used book store recently: GURPS Autoduel first edition in pretty good condition for five bucks. It even had the counter sheet intact on the back cover flap! It’s got a few standard Car Wars counters, some cardboard heroes, and a bizarre couple of six inch GURPS scale car counters. Alas, it did not contain the insert that has a map of Autoduel America and the unusual scenario premise that explains the origins of the grain blight.

My 4 year old son spent a while looking at the beautiful Denis Loubet cover. The next day, the family was discussing what kind of car we should buy. “I want a pink car!” he exclaimed. This color choice surprised me… until he clarified. “I want a pink car with a flamethrower on the back!”
