This is something, the original Gyro from Mad Max 2 had been found in the hands of Tim McClure. With his permission it was restored by Mad Max Museum's Adrian Bennett and Terry Fletcher and will be put on display at the museum.

Pretty freaking incredible, right? After all those years...

Incredible that that thing still exists 8-)
Are they also restoring the image on the side? :lol:
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

Awesome that this is still around. Adrian's Museum is the best place for it.
