You could buy it on ebay easy enough. The deluxe edition box-set is a handy starter. It's not the same without all the cheap physical components, grog ;-)

As a veteran Car Wars player I would encourage your friends to play Dark-Wind. *Sam* has taken the math out of it for us as well as the ability to fudge our own dice rolls. Keeping us honest makes the game much more fun. With Car Wars it takes hours to play a couple of minutes of game time.
"car flips and rolls; roll again on crash table 2"
"Not again! I'm gonna re-roll that"

I had the patience for an axis & allies 1942 (Both maps at once in a full game) marathon playing all axis forces myself against 3 people...

The upside of playing an entire side by yourself... no ally to fail on you  :)

It just took 15 hours, dont see how CW could be worse  :rolleyes:

You will need this:

http://www.sjgames.com/carwars/books/compendium/

And some vehicle counters.  You can make your own maps or buy them from Grog :)

Do not be fooled by 5th Edition - it sucked and was not really CW.

House rules are probably required to speed things up - since 'core' CW takes too damn long (as Joels pointed out).  I haven't played in ages but my group had this down to a science.  I can send you a copy of my house rules for speeding things up if you want. :)

I got my wife to play an arena duel with me when we first got married.

she almost rethought her decision to marry me^^

anything that drives a wife that crazy can't be all bad.
