MM2 / MMBT vehicle lists?

Postby tehCal » Mon Feb 08, 2016 7:22 pm

Hey folks, is there any definitive lists on the vehicles from these films?

I know there is a rough preproduction list for MM2 listing the need for 9 street racers, 6 dune buggies, 12 bikes, multiple tow trucks, and the Humungus car. But has anyone who worked on the production ever confirmed exactly how many vehicles were used and what makes/models they were? As neither this site or the Mad Max wikia seems to give a definitive answer.

Also wondering the same for MMBT -- it seems like there's photos of half a dozen vehicles online, but no list on how many Bartertown vehicles were built etc.

Can anyone who worked on the films help out with this?

Just to confirm, I'm most interested about the Marauder and Bartertown vehicles. I think I may have a close-to-complete list for MM2... feel free to correct me where I'm wrong and/or missing any!

The Interceptor - 1973 Ford XB Falcon Hardtop - crashes, rolls and then explodes
The Tanker - 1978 Mack R-600 Coolpower Prime Mover - crashes and rolls
The Humungus Truck - custom built from a Ford F-100 chassis, hit head-on by the tanker
The Lone Wolf Vehicle - custom built, survives until the end
Wez's Bike - Kawasaki Z1000 - survives to the end
Street Racer - 1973 Ford Landau - rolls and crashes in the opening chase
Street Racer - 1974 Ford ZG Fairlane Cop Car - set on fire from a molotov cocktail, crashes offroad
Street Racer - 1974 Holden HQ Statesman Cop Car - survives to the end
Street Racer - 1971 Chrysler VF Valiant Charger - set on fire from a molotov cocktail at the start of the final chase
Street Racer - 1959 DeSoto Firesweep - burned by a flamethrower, explodes
Street Racer - Holden LJ Torana - survives to the end
Street Racer - 1972 Ford XA Falcon - driver shot in the face, t-boned by the tanker
Street Racer - 1971 Chrysler By Chrysler CH Hardtop - driver shot in the back, jumped into a ditch
Street Racer - 1971 Holden HQ Monaro - gets some scrapes but survives to the end
Dune Buggy - Volkswagen Sandrail Kit Car (Spare Tyres) - rammed by the XA in the opening chase
Dune Buggy - Volkswagen Sandrail Kit Car (Roofless) - blown up inside the compound
Dune Buggy - Volkswagen Sandrail Kit Car (Iron Cross) - survives to the end
Dune Buggy - Volkswagen Sandrail Kit Car (Animal Skull) - captured by the compound defenders
Dune Buggy - Volkswagen Sandrail Kit Car (Red Frame) - rammed aside by the tanker at the start of the final chase, then hit by the Fairlane
Dune Buggy - Volkswagen Sandrail Kit Car (Green Frame) - accidentally nudged by the XA, crashes and rolls
Dune Buggy - Volkswagen Sandrail Kit Car (Mesh Frame #1) - dragged by the tanker in the final chase
Dune Buggy - Volkswagen Sandrail Kit Car (Mesh Frame #2) - survives to the end
Dune Buggy - Volkswagen Sandrail Kit Car (Stripped-Back) - survives to the end
Tow Truck - 1955 Dodge C-Series Tow Truck - knocked off blocks, crushes a mechanic
Tow Truck - 1970 Ford F-100 Tow Truck (Cobra) - survives to the end
Tow Truck - 1967 Ford F-100 Tow Truck (Blue) - survives to the end

Plus another ~24 bikes, mostly Kawasakis and a few Yamahas. Also possibly one or two more dune buggies, unfortunately some are only seen in wide shots.

I read in an old interview that there were 18 Bartertown junkmobiles built for Beyond Thunderdome.

Watched the film again the other night, tried to snap photos of as many of the cars as possible, but even on my 60-inch TV the photos look blurry and devoid of detail. Does anyone have a good collection of photos of the MMBT cars?

So far I have the most photos of the Big Foot, Aunty's car, the Camel Wagon, the Cow Car, the car with the spear gun, and the low-slung "ribbed" buggy. Would love a detailed list and photos, though.

There are ways to take screenshots directly from DVD and BluRays, you might have more luck with that as it would allow you to get them at the native resolution of the disc.
Whoever they send here, we're gonna catch 'em, we're gonna cook 'em, and we're gonna eat 'em!

tehCal, could you please share your collection of MMBT cars so I can cross reference it with what I've got?

I think that way we can fill in the gaps, I even found a picture of a bike or two in my folders.

Gladly Taipan. I've actually been meaning to get in touch with you, since you and Artemis Flow have the most interest in getting comprehensive with the vehicles of the series. I have Steve (Artemis) on Facebook, was going to see if you could add me too. I'll be happy to send you the screenshots I took, but it'll be easier through FB than through here. So send me an add if you want, my name on there is Cal Flavell.

The LJ (or as i call it, Tranasaurus-Rex) gets hit by the Mack at the start of the final chase (I don't remember if we see it later)

you missed the EH Holden speedway car (black with red wheels and interior), it doesn't appear in final chase, but is with the Marauders at Humungus speech (behind the red cross buggy).

Ohhh I thought he hit a dune buggy at the start of the final chase. Didn't realise he hit the Torana.

Also I noticed that speedway car but mistakenly thought it was the Torana. Do you have a photo of it for the list?

I went through the film the other night and got multiple photos of every vehicle, including the EH -- shame that car isn't seen again after the standoff scene! :)

Interesting to note, both the Torana and the Charger are rammed out of the way at the start of the final chase, but are both seen again driving about halfway through the chase. However it is only in two shots and they aren't featured clearly.

Also, the red buggy (which is rammed out of the way at the same time as the Torana and Charger) appears to be still in the final chase; the burning Fairlane clips it as it crashes.
