Issue 7/1 was published in the spring of 1989. The cover story was "Microplanes," an article introducing a new vehicle type to Car Wars
, but this first-ever full-size issue of Autoduel Quarterly
was full of all kinds of great articles, including: "Black Gold Blues," a complete scenario, and three more mini-scenarios, all ready to play; articles on cloning, drawbridges, buying a new car, electronic warfare, and micro training; and variant rules for encumbrance and new skills. All that, plus letters, columns, rules answers in ADQ&A, Uncle Albert's, and more!
