About the Story"This is a very simple simulation of a car racing around a track done with inform6. You'll need an interpreter of the z-code that supports real-time key reading and action." [--blurb from The Z-Files Catalogue]
Yet ANOTHER abuse of the Z-machine -- this time you're driving a car down a track composed of ASCII characters. There are two versions of the game in the archive, differing only in the interpreters they support.

by Divarinobviously not an interactive fiction, but an innovative, hackery, I would stop short of saying abusive use of the z machine.
not really fun as there are better racing games, and it isn't a text adventure so the fun factor isn't really relevant here.
However I like ASCII Cars just as a demonstration/proof of concept of what is possible using the z-machine emulators.
