    I think the game is from the 90s, but am not sure. Are there any old school gamers here that would remember the name of this game? I've been looking for the past hour on google but can't find the bugger. I think back in the days we just called this game "old cars".

    Basically in the game you had a garage and could buy and sell old cars and parts and modify and tune them. You could respray the car, take out its engine and install a better one, change tires, etc... along when you also competed with other drivers to get money.

    I think the last one to defeat was a black car.

    Dude, it still is COOL :D

    P.S. I'm trying the new street rod 3 alpha version. Sucks but it seems the project has been abandoned. The last news were from 2008.

    The Streetrod on the Amiga was infinitely superior than the PC version, its best to download the AMIGA emulator and also download the Amiga Version of Street Rod 2 to see what i mean.

    Also who remembers the games Wings and Wings Of Fury For The Amiga?

    Wings was when you got to be a world war one pilot trying to become an ace, flying old bi-planes and later tri-planes in dogfights and shoot down balloons and more in 3d, then a 2d parallex scrolling game shooting troops and vehicles along the road etc. Addictive game.

    Wings of Fury was a 2d side scrolling shooter where you flew a fighter dropping bombs and torpedos trying to sink the ships, and trying to shoot them men,planes and gun implacement onboard ship. Really good game that was.
