Hey, I'm Rick and just thought I'd share some pics of my cars.
My first car was a 1974 Ford XBGT which I planned to make into a Mad Max Interceptor, but when prices for GTs started to skyrocket I thought it would be more worthwhile to restore it to factory condition, so that's what I'm doing now. I've owned it for nearly 10 years, and this week the shell is finally ready for primer (after 6 months of rust repairs) and I should have it back from the painters with a bright new coat of paint sometime late January.
So this is my XB:
Although it's not gonna be an Interceptor replica, I will be keeping the big black rims and BF Goodrich tyres, and as a nod to Mad Max I'll have the blower switch on the gear stick ;-)
This next car isn't mine, but it was made by a dude called Adrian from the Mad Max Movies club. He did an awesome job on this car, and that's genuine Broken Hill red dirt (where Mad Max 2 was filmed).
This is my other car that I currently drive, I bought it because I am a big fan of the Miami Vice TV series, and it's the car that Rico Tubbs drove for 5 seasons. It's a 1964 Cadillac DeVille Convertible. The only thing I needed to make this car a replica was the "Cowboy Cadillac" number plate on the front, hehe.
My father also has a car that he bought after being inspired by Back To The Future, that being the DeLorean. One of only 30 in Australia. No plans to mod it like the movie car, but he has spent a lot of money reconditioning the engine and squeezing more HP out of it.
