Wow, in the photo gallery, looks like the wrecks (2nd interceptor and the cobra truck) made it to the BACK 2 THE MAX! That is totally cool! did anyone get pics of the truck? I could really use close ups all around for my replica. Were there any other movie vehicles there? Looks like the truck drives again?


Also who did the "Red XA / Bat Coupe" hybred vehicle, its very cool, but looked a little out of place next to all those exact replicas, too bad they didnt go all out for the "Red Wipeout", Oh well I guess its still up to me to build the first!!

MFP1, You doing a replica of the cobra truck? I have thought about doing one for some time. The ONLY difference between the US F100 an the Aussie one is the steering wheel placement. A '71 (72?) 2wd ford can be had dirt cheap. the tow rig & boat windscreen would be the only pricy / obscure items in the whole project. ( assuming you can weld, I can't ) Still may tackle the project someday though. I'd really like to see someone do the lifted '57 DeSoto though! Good luck with the "wipeout" clone.

I'm gonna remind everyone again. That pink desoto is a '59, not a '57. Peter has it as a '57 on his MM2 cars page, and I've emailed him telling him its a '59, but he doesn't want to change it because of a lack of evidence, even though I sent him pics of both model years.


There is, or was last year, a pink 2 door '59 Desoto for sale near me, that hasn't sold in a while. It is probably still there, but I like the look of the '57 and '58 Desotos (which looked pretty much the same as each other) better than the '59 (different headlights and taillights), and I don't like pink, or I would have bought it.

Err, it's a '59 on the cars page. I believe I updated this not long after you last emailed me, along with the links you provided to some examples (or someone provided).

No worries, should be able to get the tape this week. Then I can download the photos, as you can see from the pic Peter put up it doesnt look much.
