STAR CARS- Mad Max Machines @ Wasteland Weekend (Ep. 13)
In the post-apocalyptic wasteland, it's survival of the fastest! And
nothing's faster than Max's
Interceptor V8 Pursuit Special, just one of the insane cars Athena Stamos
profiled at Wasteland Weekend (an annual Burning Man-style desert weekend
for Mad Max fans).
She also discovered a kick-ass limousine gunboat, a naval Camaro festooned with a harpoon
and mermaid, a hot-rod Mercury, and a real Thunderdome. Athena even dove in
as a judge in the hugely competitive car contest. Which road warrior took
home the top prize?

Mad Max - Last V8 Interceptor Ride-Along
A quick 5 minute ride-along in the Interceptor during a regular weekend run
(at Xmas-time, hence the hat). Feel free to leave comments, I do try to
answer all questions. There's some burnout action at
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
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
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
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."

Mad Max Cars of Wasteland Weekend - The Monster Monte Carlo | Roads & Rides
Mad Max and a monstrous Chevrolet Monte Carlo come together at Wasteland
Weekend in Ron Griffith's insane custom Monstr Carlo car.
Girls, grills and guns! Meet Wasteland Weekend master Ron Griffith and his
Monster Carlo machine take us on a drive through the barren desert on
At first glance, Ron Griffith is just your average guy. He owns an
automotive repair shop in California City deep within the Mojave desert. On
a normal day, he can be found under the hood of Vegas-bound tourist's car
that didn't quite make it through the desert heat. But Ron and his pals
have a hidden passion that you'd never suspect. It's a movie that premiered
in 1979 starring an up-and-coming actor named Mel Gibson. A movie about a
post-apocalyptic world full of gas-stealing, treacherous land pirates known
as wastelanders. They LOVE Mad Max.
They love Mad Max so much that they have created a yearly festival in the
Mojave called the Wasteland Weekend. Tribes build their custom Wasteland
cars well in advance to storm through the gates, raid other tribes and
there is even a contest to see who has the best car of the year. Ron
Griffith and the Monstr Carlo are previous winners of that coveted prize.
It's a stock Chevy 350 with a stock automatic transmission. "The car still
uses points," says Ron. Points work and when you are scavenging through the
wasteland you want to keep things easy to maintain. Besides making sure the
car runs, Ron has also outfitted the car with offensive and defensive
equipment that is both practical and menacing for this wasteland world.

Last of the V8 Interceptors-The Road Warrior in 1/24scale
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!
