Man Spends $125,000 Recreating A Mad Max Interceptor

June 23, 2015

This is a video of Dale Walter and his Mad Max Interceptor. Dale spent $5,000 on a 1972 Australian Ford Falcon, then sent the piece of rusting junk to the vehicle customizers at Mad Max Cars, who, five years and $120,000 later, returned to him with this. If he had sent it to me five years ago? He would have had a guy sleeping in his car for five years. Still, you have to admire a man who spends half a decade and $125,000 waiting for his replica car to be built. Clearly he's done something right in life. I bet he's had a pool table and hot tub for years already.

Keep going for a video tour of the car.

Thanks to Jody, who's saving up for a replica of the city bus from Speed because he's weird.

    Haters gonna hate. You can spend your whole life fighting the internet trolls and not get anywhere but to a GI doc for an ulcer Dale. Bottom line you've got a car you love, built how you wanted it, and worth the price to you. Fuck the keyboard warriors and wikipedia experts.

    I'm currently saving for my own Interceptor replica but I'm torn on the first movie or the second with the tanks and the weathering. Luckily I've got plenty of time to decide. I just hope that the XB Falcons don't keep getting more expensive now that Miller rebirthed the franchise.

    Ride eternal shiny and chrome!

    All shenanigans aside, you did build a real nice top shelf movie car.

    Meh...it looks alright, but with a base car cost of under $6k, there's no way this thing should have taken that kind of cash.

    I hope it was $125k AUS, and not $125k US...at least in kangaroo dollars it seems less of a terrible idea.

  • Alex Nguyen

    What was the most expensive thing? i can't find how you could spend over 50k on the car.

  • Jay Koski

    I'd go for Kaneda's motorcycle, personally.

    That dosent look like $120,000 worth of car. $5000, yes, maybe $5500 with the cool front spoiler from ebay.

    125K and he couldn't put a real fucking supercharger on it, just because he wanted one that would turn on with the stupid switch? Pretty fucking lame. Also, gonna raise the BS flag on 12k for a stroked Cleveland. That's twice the going rate for big cube stroker Cleveland street engines.

    I could have had a real blower if I wanted one. THEN everyone would have bitched 'It doesn't turn on and off like in the movie'

    Engine came from here http://www.proformanceunlim... they don't build shit, and good stuff costs,

  • RadXCor

    I'm just gonna leave this here.

    Again, really classy.

  • Chris Gancos

    Don't look at his hand, don't look at his hand, don't look at his hand... shit

  • L Dale Walter

    Really. You can see my right one as it gets bigger and bigger, then everything goes dark...

  • DeathBotGamma

    5 years?

  • L Dale Walter

    Yeah, it took twice the proposed amount of time, but the result was worth the wait.

  • Meh

    Way to literally burn your money.

  • ShartInYourJacuzzi

    Way to misuse the word "literally"

  • Meh

    Way to focus on the wrong word.

  • RetroPAT

    Money wasted...gimme the 1989 batmobile any day....or the delorean modified from BTTF. To eaches own i suppose...thats cool.

  • L Dale Walter

    Yeah, but it was MY money.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Too shiny. Should have gone for the weathered look.

  • L Dale Walter

    It's the car from the first movie, when it was new, and still a police car.
