Gastown Carmada

For fun, I have been trying to identify the vehicles of the People Eater's carmada (since it has a much easier to swallow 11 vehicles, rather than the hundred-car motorcade from the Citadel). So far I have identified 9 of the 11 vehicles (the fact that there were actually TWO Humvees in the movie was very confusing!) viewed thru the telescope, and when they reappear later in the film. But two vehicles (one muscle car on the far right, and one to the left of the People Eater's Limousine with the roll cage) don't seem to show up later! At least, I haven't been able to recognize them. And since they are so obscured in this particular formation, I can't identify them either.

Does anybody know what these vehicles are?

Two of those are actually from the Citadel. The Ford F-100 behind the '55 Pontiac and the Holden Ute next to the People Eater's rig. They are seen at the beginning when the War Boys are chasing Max.

Spot on, but I think it's a Ford F-150, I think Andrew mentioned it on FB.

I honestly didn't know there were two Humvees in the movie! Not only you can barely ever see one of them. The People Eater's Rig is mainly an AM General M814 20ft extra long wheelbase with a W123 limo on top (sourced from a wedding company no less).

Oh is that the WB ute, never would have guessed! Are you sure that's the same F-100? Both vehicles are missing the poles on mounted on the front, but the F-100 looks like its missing all the details of the Citadel's F-100!

Image conveniently shows both vehicles :3

EDIT: Thanks much guys for your help

@Taipan, yes the polecat Humvee appears in this shot and then briefly in the final chase, while another non-polecat Humvee appears in at least one shot, and in a developement image. Thought my eyes were playing tricks on me!

1970 Ford F-150 looks like a perf match!

Aussies sure are good at chopping a car.

Thats interesting to me because I dont find most Aussie cars very handsome other then the Monaro.
Of course I haven't seen them all.

But after they get their hands on them they're some of the baddest looking machines on the planet.
And with an Aussie Cleveland under the hood no less.

The f-100 was called the tyre medic and is the same all the way through the film, you just can't see the tyres on the back in that shot.
I think somewhere on the other side was the Monaro flame car , the one that gets chewed up in the storm.
Also there was only 1 Hummer in the movie and it had a hydraulic pole on it rather than the other pole cats.

The pontiac polecat in that shot was called the silver surfer because of the metal surfboard on the roof and beach theme inside

Do you have any pics of the Ford F-100 'Tyre Medic?'
