Check out Walmart. They have some really nice small metal cars that work perfect with 15mm figures. Don't remember the name of the company and they are cheap!

Look for Micro Machines cars on Ebay. Dirt cheap, and just about an inch long.

go to your freindly neighborhood train hobby store.
they will have lots of cars that will be close enough for 1" gaming.

Yeah, but hobby shops charge out the NOSE for those N scale cars that are perfect for "Car Wars…"

Some WalMarts have been carrying a line of very small cars that are .97 cents each. They are close to 1".

Yea, check Walmart.

I even saw a Mach 5 in this scale, last night, plus a bunch of other nice prototype cars too, e.g. the various Ford GT racing cars (convertible on at least one), and a Porsche Cayman.

They looked superb.

auction
Some places, like here, can sell you a bulk lot of them. They have a few different scales and this seller has a list of the average vehicle LOA.

Some people talk about PA road warrior games in 15mm scale and I was wondering where I could find some 1/100 scale cars to suit, this might be the place but the cars look a bit new for that purpose.
