After a public appearance at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, a big fan wanted to go for a ride, listen to the music from those 8 live sidepipes! This is the Interceptor that is featured in the documentary "Back 2 The Max" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7ibRo5_Slc

Just some pics of my models, from Mad Max, the Road Warrior. I built two of this model, one with the front intact, as at the start of the movie, and one with the front end smashed off, after Max rams the Landau in the opening chase of the movie. Enjoy!

2011 Ford Mad Max Concept
Ford Australia, in partnership with TopGear Australia magazine, has unveiled not one, but two spectacular new Mad Max Interceptors.
The 21st century concepts have been designed by Ford's designers for TopGear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max action movie genre.
It is more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller's original Mad Max movie - starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe-based Interceptor - hit movie screens around the world.
Ford Australia's Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design Director, Chris Svensson, jumped at the chance to design a new Interceptor and has since thrown the full weight of Ford Australia's Research Centre behind the project, with stunning results.
"Our entire team was very excited to be involved in this after-hours project and they approached it with a great deal of enthusiasm - even those that were too young to remember the first Mad Max movie," Svensson said. "We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand it."
Led by chief designer passenger cars Asia, Pacific and Africa, Todd Willing, the team created several way-out concepts that pay homage to styling cues from the original XB Coupe Interceptor.
Out of the concepts two have been chosen by the magazine to feature in the April issue of TopGear Australia magazine, on sale now, because they take body design, power sources and weaponry to a futuristic level.
TopGear Australia magazine readers will be invited to vote on which design Ford should take to the next level.
The winning car will be turned into a clay model, and then a scale version, which is expected to be revealed later this year.
The two competing designs - by designers Nima Nourian and Simon Brook - are limitless in their imagination, technology and weaponry. Among the weaponry is an industrial-strength "taser" mounted to the bonnet to zap bad guys on bikes straight off the road.
Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy vehicles.
Nourian said his design paid tribute to the 1970s Interceptor, but also drags the car into the future.
"There are some great scenes in the first movie with high-speed chases and clashes with the bad guys, and I thought I'd take that one step further," he said. "So instead of having weapons and machine guns, we've got an industrial strength taser that'll zap cars dead and out of the way.
Brook's car was equally threatening. "During high-speed pursuits, the wheel's inner spokes on my design would pop out and start ripping up other cars," Brook said. "They'd do some serious damage to other people's vehicles."
Brook's design takes cues from the current FG Falcon but advances it further into Armageddon-land, while adding touches of the retro Interceptor as well. "I wanted to keep it clean and aerodynamic in its essence, but still brutal and tough."
My Mad Max Interceptor Project: Part 1
This is a documentary about fulfilling one of my dreams. I am building my dream car, the Mad Max Interceptor. There is currently 3 parts to see!
Pardon all the verbal pauses. I will remedy that in the next video.
In this video is how I got started and where I am at on the project. I imported a car from Australia to Ohio, USA; the kind of car that was used to build the famous movie car.
This is part 1 of who knows how many videos. I just decided to capture the progress in a documentary for others to enjoy. You can learn a LOT more about the project at my website about my car. It is about a year and a half behind as I ran out of free hosting space, never thinking I would use all of it. My plan to host it at my own "paid for" hosting account was thwarted when I learned I would have to build the whole site over again. Anyways, you can see a lot about my car, the parts I got for it including "Mad Max" parts, info about the XA - XC series Falcons, the movie car, and much more at http://xaxbinterceptor.tripod.com .
My Mad Max Interceptor Project: Part 2
This is part 2 of the documentary of the building of my Mad Max Interceptor replica. Part 3 is also NOW AVAILABLE!
This part contains overall views of the car's current state, parts needed for the blower, views of the condition of the car and trouble areas, information about the engine, and more.
In part 3 you will see footage of the parts that were removed from the car, their condition, and other special parts that were acquired in order to replicate the car as it was in the movie.
