Bummer that dreadful Metallica ruins the incredible audio of V8 motors.

It had the rare "turn your supercharger on and off by pulling the shifter release lever" option. lol But yeah, gotta like Max. I saw the first one at a drive in.

Love the original. Had an Aussie friend who had the un-dubbed version; voices were VERY different in that one!

I think they were worried the American audiences wouldn't understand the Aussie accents. Probably with good reason! Great movies, particularly 1 and 2.

I don't think it was the Aussie accents so much, but some of the Aussie slang wouldn't be understood in the US.

That was a genuine blower and injector "hat", sitting on a fabricated from steel section tressle, above the factory carb.

The blower had a drive pulley on the A/C compressor so it could be selected on and off...pumping nothing into the engine (and taking not much power).

There's a black Falcon with the body kit comes through town a couple times a year (no blower) Plates MFP006

(20 years ago, I could recite every word from that movie verbatum in a half hour if people got me beers)

Posted this music video recently, Addicted To Bass, but it's very Mad Max inspired.

#1 was okay, but #2 is what people think of when they hear Mad Max. Desert, apocalyptic, big vehicles etc. #3 just sucked.

I find it neat how the same actor who played the main villain in #1 played the main villain in the 2015 remake.

The 2015 remake was both good and bad. The plot left me with something to be desired, but apparently they hardly used any CGI, which I find impressive. I find it sad that vehicles that made it through the movie without getting destroyed had to get destroyed anyways.. I guess they were a menace to society?

It's said the feral kid from #2 was Tom Hardy's character in the remake and that all the movies are connected. Who knows.

The detail that went into recent movie was amazing

The older movies were amazing car scenes for time period.
