Description: Dallas/Ft. Worth, 2085: Shacks fashioned
of rusty sheet metal and soiled canvas squat among the ruins of this
once-mighty metropolis, like hermit crabs hiding in the sand. The naked,
steel-girder skeletons of majestic skyscrapers rise out of the rubbish,
their twisted, scorched fingers towering over this ash-covered
graveyard like so many weather-beaten crosses. It's been over three
decades since the Nuclear War ushered in the Second Dark Age. For thirty
years, the survivors have struggled to restore some measure of law and
order to North America. The Southwest now stands ready to start the
tedious process of recivilization, but the Second Civil War threatens to
uproot this fledgling society before it can spread its branches.
the First Civil War, the Second Civil War pits American against
American. But this time, the soldiers will fight their skirmishes on the
long-neglected highways of the Southwest. The cavalry will ride to
battle not on exhausted, half-starved horses, but in super-charged Fords
and Chevrolets armed with rocket launchers and twin machine guns. In
the conflicts of this war, terrain and tactical advantage count for very
little -- the general with the most gasoline will emerge victorious.
And presently, the Northern Barbarians have all the gasoline. Unless the
Southwestern Colonies can penetrate the enemy lines and destroy the
Barbarian's gasoline supply, they will certainly lose the war. But they
don't have even enough fuel to mount a counterattack and punch through
the lines. If they are to succeed, the Southwestern Colonies must rely
on one super-fast, super-armored vehicle -- the Terrible Swift Ford!
