Where the bloody hell did they get all those NFL shoulderpads from?  Ive lost count how many I have seen, and the movie has only been on for about 30mins.  I've only ever seen 1 pair of them here, and that was owned by a mate who played in the local competition.








And whats with all the fuckin bondage gear?  Looks like in apocalyptic Aus, Kings Cross got raided hard.







Looks like all the roos died during the clash of the 2 tribes too.







Everybody knows that even if the world becomes like that, there is no way that there would be no grog.  I havent seen a single drop of grog.  If the world went to shit like that, everyone would be on the piss.






















Just walk away...

The outfits? a punk thing, it was the 80's and that look went along with our idea of a post apocalyptic world.

Particularly in Australia where I would bet there's not a lot pf padded football being played....

The hands down star of that movie was the Blue Heeler, "Dog".

One of my favorite films of all time.



I hit a point in my teens where I became over analytical and started asking, "where do they get oil, tires, brake fluid, air for tires, brake pads, axle grease, headlights, alternators, hell, water for gods sake"



Then, in my 20's, I realized something, it is  a fantasy movie.  It is to be taken lightly and to have fun with.  In a post apocalyptic setting, gasoline and cars are the last thing we would be fighting over.



I think if 90% of the population died out, we would have a hard enough time even finding each other.

Its strange watching Mel Gibson act before he became a douchebag








Right now its a scene where they are indoors in some dark shed building.  I see no barrels of homebrew!  WTF!  That would be high on the list of priorities, especially out in the middle of fuckin nowhere!







Ya know, its been almost 30yrs and I bet the filming location hasnt changed a bit.  Fuck, most of Aus hasnt changed in a bloody long time.







I deadset think that kid has downs.  What a crazy little bugger.







Haha I like the sped up footage.

Man, when Max leans out and drills the driver through the windshield of the Landau, and then the guy on the roof of the primary mover with the sawn off... one hundred percent badass. I've seen a few members' pics of their short barreled doubles, I WILL have one!

Now I just need to get the guy with the avatar of Max leaning out to post. Come on, guy who's screen name I've forgotten, don't fail me now!!

EDIT: I still prefer the first Mad Max, the Falcon XBs and the Holden Monaro.... very cool.

Same way an A/C compressor works.

Stop analyzing the movie. It's not worth it. Just drink a few pints, sit back and enjoy the bad ass chase sequence at the end of the movie.

Where the fuck did a 1980s Aussie prop department get all those random as fuck pieces of sporting equipment that nobody here would have?








And where did they find a kid with downs syndrome that is willing to put up with mel gibson?

Magnetic clutch... it is the future, after all!  (well, from when the movie was made in the early 80's anyway)

Magnetic clutch, as mentioned above.  At least in theory it would work.

I love the first two films of that franchise.  They communicate the themes of vigilante moralism and redemptive violence very effectively.

And Max Rockatansky is a great character.

My life fades. The vision dims. All that remains are memories. I remember a time of chaos. Ruined dreams. This wasted land. But most of all, I remember The Road Warrior. The man we called "Max". To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time. When the world was powered by the black fuel. And the desert sprouted great cities of pipe and steel. Gone now, swept away. For reasons long forgotten, two mighty warrior tribes went to war and touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing. They'd built a house of straw. The thundering machines sputtered and stopped. Their leaders talked and talked and talked. But nothing could stem the avalanche. Their world crumbled. The cities exploded. A whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear. Men began to feed on men. On the roads it was a white line nightmare. Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice. And in this maelstrom of decay, ordinary men were battered and smashed. Men like Max. The warrior Max. In the roar of an engine, he lost everything. And became a shell of a man, a burnt out, desolate man, a man haunted by the demons of his past, a man who wandered out into the wasteland. And it was here, in this blighted place, that he learned to live again...

I think the blower only works south of the equator, it has to do with the Coriolis effect.

Unfortunately, the rotors inside of the blower would block the air flow from the carb to the cylinders.  Remove the rotors and it would work just fine, just not as a supercharger.

Intake spacer + bypass valves under the blower.

It does not work and has been tried, there is far too much friction and resistance under boost.



The blower was a large prop on top of a carbed 351.

The supercharger is powered by mel's douchefagness.  Fact.  Thats why it can be turned off and on.  When its on, he's less of a douche.  It hasnt been used for years, which is why he is such a douche right now.








I wonder what Mad Max 4 will be like...

The American football gear was for the Football Team from the USS SAWFISH.

It is a little known fact the On The Beach was a prequel to "Mad Max"
