Here ya are folks, My group has long been bored of sad selection in the RBB.
So, I designed a few fancy ones. I have number of bike and other family type
cars. Unfortunately, I have no idea what cars drive around America today, so
most of the cars conversions are on cars that are on English roads. If someone
wants to send me a brief description of American cars then I might be able to
work something out.

Oh most of these are based on real cars in a mag I found at my dentist's, so
feel free to tweak them abit to your own games.

Have fun with them.
