My Husband's Mad Max Interceptor Project

Do you remember the black Interceptor from the movie Mad Max? Have you never heard of Mel Gibson's first really big movie when he was only 21? Does this car look familiar to you at all?

It is commonly known as the "Last of the V-8 Interceptors..." It is one of the all time most impressive film cars.
 
Mad Max was released in the U.S. in 1980 and this car captured my husbands desire. He dreamt about it ever since then believing it was only a movie car.

Finally he learned in 2003 that it was built from an Australian car, where the movie was filmed, and that it was possible to build his own replica!

No, the picture is not backwards, the car is right hand drive as they drive on the left side of the road in Australia. My husband imported one of the cars that the Interceptor was built from and is now making his own replica of this amazing car. Below are pictures of the car he imported from Australia to Northeast Ohio to build this replica. It is a 1973 Ford XB Falcon.
