That must be the car disks by Andrew Bolt I used to have - I think some of his cars were added to later releases of the game but the Wheel Chairs were left out... I would be very grateful if you could sort these out for me HH, when you can.

These disks are in the "PDSoft" set, can't seem to find them to download anywhere though. Maybe someone has them?

Code:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
^+  4509    SKIDMARKS 2 CAR DISKS (AB)
    This is what all you Skidmarks fans have been waiting for over the 
    last couple of months.  There are two car disks to this set.  The 
    cars designed for this game on these 2 disks are Toyota Supra, Land 
    Rover, Truck and the stunning Wheelchair.  On the disk there is a 
    installation utility that allows you to install them in a very easy 
    process.  If you like Skidmarks you must get this.  Always race the 
    Wheelchair it's excellent.

You can find the two car disks on the EAB file server (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=43633) in the folder 'TOSEC/Games/Unofficial Addons & Patches'. Hope that helps

Would be nice if you would report back if that are indeed the disks with the cars you searched for

I don't mind putting adding any cars to a new version called SuperSkidmarks+SHITLOADSOFCARS if someone wants to get all the cars together?

Be good if the cars were good ones though, don't want some pile of shit some 11 year old put together

I think it was pretty difficult to create the Vehicles... I don't think any of them ever looked as good as the Mini.

With the Wheel Chairs added I think that the KG SuperSkidmarks packs now contain all the cars that I know of... I don't know of any other cars...?

Thanks for looking into this for me guys...
Yes - the two disks on the EAB File server do contain the wheel Chair Vehicle!

These are the two disks released by Andrew Bolt that contain 4 AGA Vehicles.

1.Supra
2.Truck Cab
3.Land Rover
4.Wheel Chair (!)

These disks included the option to purchase another additional 12 Vehicles - most or all of which were featured in later releases of the game.

The additional Vehicles that could be purchased were...

1.Cosworth
2.Dragster
3.Tank
4.Dick Dastardly Car
5.Reliant Robin
6.Bus
7.JCB
8.Roller Skater
9.Go-Kart
10.Convertible
11.Fighter Jet
12.Big Foot

The Wheel Chair seems to have been omitted from any later commercial release of the game probably because it was seen to be inappropriate to include it - I don't suppose that they wanted to offend anyone - a fair point even though it is obviously just a bit of fun.

I think that the CD "Ultimate Super Skidmarks" included them - I only have your KG Packs now so I cant be certain...

I did buy the additional Vehicles from Andrew Bolt at the time but when I cleared out a lot of Amiga stuff a few years ago I must have got rid of the disks.

Yes - I am pretty sure they are all there - all but the Wheel Chair - I will double double check later... the wheel Chair got lost somewhere down the line and that is the Vehicle I really wanted back - hence my hunt for the disks...
