The other day I pulled out an long buried box
I chopped the roof off my Hummer thinking it would be easier to place the necessary driver and crew within, having some Orks lying about -- and why did I have these??? However they provided the inspiration for the haphazardly armored, quite rusted but heavily weaponed, bucket of a wagon.

The construction was mainly of plastic found in household goods packaging! The result was then painted to simulate rust.
The game was to create your own vehicle based upon a point system. Up-armor = 2 pts, +1 on driver reaction = 1 pt, extra nitro =3 pts; that sort of thing. So every one starts the race with the same points expended but the attributes of the vehicle could be very different. I went with armor and fire-power. Very Orkish I thought. I remember in my first game I started last (rolled the lowest....once again <sigh>) but ended up finishing first as I destroyed every vehicle I came up to with my flamer up front or the heavy bolter to the rear should any fool come up to try to lap me! The game was kinda NASCAR with guns and nasty obstacles (oil slicks, barricades etc. ...and land mines - if memory serves me .... and probably doesn't)
Great fun. Haven't played it many years but will hold onto the model.
