Bit off topic but a mate has completed a movie replica of the Mad Max (Road Warrior) Interceptor car that is road legal.I got to have a go today,boy it gets some looks !
Yes that my ugly head behind the wheel,check out the Pilot in the background LOL.Another thing Australian ATV magazine is doing a feature on my Pilot tomorrow at Stockton Dunes for the next issue,shes all nice and clean with the stock rims fitted again.

Cheers
Aussieduner

Hi
The base car for the Interceptor from the movie and the one I'm in is a Ford XB 1974 Falcon Coupe,these were made through 1973 to 1978 with the XA,XB & XC models all looked the same except for the grille area.
Here's a pic of the front of the Interceptor,blower works as well !
Have you seen the movie,MAD MAX or i think it was called Road Warrior in the US with Mel Gibson

Aussieduner, very, very cool!   Looks like a great restoration.

The blower wouldn't happen to be on a clutch would it, like the movie version?

Yeah its right hand drive,the original car was only sold in Australia and currently lives in "Cars of the Movies" museum in the UK.
My friend,Marke Kemp,has a web site about his car and its construction if your interested,got some good pics of the inside etc and the steering.
