Thanks timdp.... Was the likes of 790 hours coming.... :D

I didn't get it until I actually played it at the time......

Here's a harder question, not film related this one sorry, but "Replica Cars" related.
This sticker of the interceptor, which was given to the Museum and now pinions the back of my car, whos car is it?

It's not Max's....... (just in case if someone's confused)

I can not legally drive it on the road.

The engine along with the Arcadipane front are only the top most reconizable items of the Interceptor....

and I have to cover up the engine with a bonnet scoop.... but further detail reads :

So a plastic or fiberglass bonnet scoop can cover a hole in the bonnet with nothing coming through it...

A thin steel scoop can cover a hole with an Airfilter or Carbie protruding through the bonnet...

What about A Blower? Bad news....

and there's also another height restriction of half a 165mm sphere or something....

You wouldn't think Mad Max was "Made in Australia".

It was inspired by dozens of road casualties Miller had to attend as a doctor in mid 70's, so there's your answer:)

Check out the blower drive video I posted up for MMC in this forum, I think it would look smashing on your car.



Very cool, well built, but then she'd be destined to stay in the garage over here and I can't have that MFP1...


Check out this blower drive and it's street legal in Australia!...

The pulley just free spins from compressed air...

Even the kids can't get their fingers caught...
