Gameplay

The player starts off on the garage, where cars and parts may be purchased from the newspaper. New parts that are purchased must be installed by the player by entering the hood of or going under the car and then removing a series of screws to remove parts of the engine and transmission. Then, these parts must be re-installed in order and the screws replaced, otherwise the car will be undrivable. To install tires, the car must be jacked up. While racing, the car will eventually run out of fuel, which the payer must obtain from the gas station.

The player will proceed from the garage to the local diner in order to find some competiton to race. Races take place on either a dragstrip, Mulholland drive, or in an aquaduct. Wagers on the races can be set from "Just for fun!" (no wager) to cash to "Pink Slips" (the winner recieves the loser's car). When the race starts, the player must wait for a signal to be given to go or else they forfeit the race. Crashing during the race will either total your car, or requre you to pay a fee in order to get it fixed. Also, the police may fine you during a Pink slip race.
