In The Road Warrior, I noticed that the The Red XA Coupe has the same skull on the rear quarter panel as the Ford Landau, has anyone else noticed this?Image

I noticed it on the DVD version of the film and I have found a picture of a German badge from WW2 that looks the same as the skull on the side of the Landau. Here is the link to the site http://members.aol.com/jsmilitary/repro.html, its about 7 pictures down.

If you'll look closely at Humungous' gun case, the same Skull emblem is attatched to the lid of the case.





Humungous & his gang seem to have adopted this emblem...

Cool, does the tattoo look any good rockatansky4073? And I think it's a shame that the red falcon got wiped out by the tanker Image it was a nice car.

I remember when i was like 7 or something my dad, me and dad's mate next door used to watch MAD MAX 2 like every third weekend, and the both of them used to cringe everytime that red XA got wiped out, and one of them always made some kind of comment, like "oh that beautiful ford", or something, i think it used to hit them more than the INTERCEPTOR itself getting wiped out, Then after it they'd run out to the backyard and work on their FALCONs. Now i watch it with my boy, cept i only own a NISSAN BLUEBIRD, those of you that live in australia will laugh your arses off at that...


The tattoo looked cool as sh*t when it was first done, now it's years later, and they tend to turn from black to dark blue, but it's still cool. my dad used to also collect old WORLD WAR 2 medals and patches and he had a NAZI SS cap with a siver DEATHSHEAD on it...
