Dale Walter’s custom Interceptor by Mad Max Cars

Michigan born Dale Walter’s life long passion with George Miller’s Mad Max movies has reached a pinnacle in collecting terms. ‘”Someday I will own that car”….and now he does.

The famous Interceptor car has featured in three of Miller’s four pictures, including the latest Mad Mad: Fury Road. In 2008, Dale commissioned specialist company Mad Max Cars to convert his 1972 Australian Falcon into the iconic Interceptor – a process which took five years and $125,000.

“It was a 30 year dream, and a 5 year project”

Chinese Mechanic Builds Scrap Metal Batmoblie

Li Weilei, a serious Batman fan and four of his friends spent two months and 70,000 yuan (US$11,207) creating the vehicle out of scrap metal. It might be a bit rough about the edges but certainly looks the part.

Scrap Metal Batmobile

Li, who has worked as prop maker in movies and television, has been renting the replica Tumbler Batmobile to local businesses that use it to attract customers. Currently transported on the back of a truck as it has no engine or steering capability (no working missile launchers or harpoons either).

The talented men have already created dozens of other models up for rent, including a full-sized replica of an aircraft and huge life size Transformers.

Listen to the reporter in this BBC clip mention Optimus Prime while showing an image of Megatron. Don’t send a ‘norm’ to do a geeks job!

Mechanic builds a Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper Car

An amusement park mechanic decided to take an old mail truck, lots of spare parts and a fracking huge dollop of skill and made a road worthy Colonial Viper Mobile.

Dean Shorey works at the Seabreeze Amusement Park and occasionally takes the car for a spin to rally’s and fairs sporting street legal New York licence plates. I wonder how good he is at repairing toasters?
