Intercepted: Mad Max's 1973 Ford Falcon GT Hardtop Pursuit Special

December 03, 2016

Back in August on a single day, I went to a car show in Ipswich then dashed down to the Gold Coast to enjoy a second car show, both of which were a lot of fun. The obvious highlight of both events was this stunning replica of Max's Interceptor as it appeared in the first film of the franchise.

This Falcon hardtop was built in 1973. It has a 5,800cc V8 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
