  1. I always wondered about the air cleaner going into the supercharger on his car. Oh yeah, there wasn't one.

    1. It was fake anyway....

      "The ‘Pursuit Special’ was modified from the standard Falcon GT for the first film in the franchise, Mad Max (1979). The ‘Main Force Patrol’ logo was painted in gold on the front fender, just behind the front wheel, and it was painted black. It also had custom front and rear lip spoilers, flared wheel arches, side-exit exhausts, and a front nose cone and air dam, all of which were marketed as ‘Concorde’ style.

      The massive Weiand 6-71 supercharger protruding through the hood was the car’s most famous added feature. While it appeared to be impressive, the supercharger was not connected to the engine, rendering it a non-functional prop in the first film. Director George Miller insisted on making the props as authentic as possible for Mad Max 2 (1981) and Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), so the ‘Pursuit Special’ seen in that film is equipped with a working supercharger."

  2. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.
