Wow, the Valiant with the dart gun is in broken hill!?!?! And it didnt make it to the "Back to the Max" with the others??? did anyone who went to B@TM see it or go where it shows it at in the W2WYA doco?


And what exactly happened to the Lone wolf and others after MMBTD? Or the car show pix taken afterwords, who has them now?????

If you've seen W2WYA, you'll see it's in no condition to travel anywhere. I would have tried to visit it though. The owner, "Mad" Mick, seemed like a very personable guy. Hope you like emus though.

The Valient is in worse condition than the rolled and blown up 2nd interceptor? Lord, I saw the ipx of it after the "moat jump" and it was crunched but didnt look all that bad. So "Mad" mick is a cool guy? Ill have to seek him out when I finally make the "pligrimage". I have never met either of the guys, s I am wondering what made the Interceptor/cobra truck/buggy guy such a bastard? Was he mean to people at the B2TM? He did drag his wrecks all the way out to be at the event... other than that I know nothing, except that I still cant order the W2WYA doco cuz they still have paypal troubles, so I am going off your knolege of it..

No, It's not as bad as the Interceptor hulk, but it has been sitting without a drivetrain since, well, 81 it looks like. Technically, it could be moved, but is surely too far gone to be resurrected al-la the cobra F-100. Who knows if Mick has since been overrun by fans wanting to see the Valient, and his mood has soured. But in the doco he was a very gracious host when most of the people in Broken Hill wanted nothing to do with the film crew. One of the guys (on the crew) said: "It's like an episode of the X-Files, you get the feeling that everybody knows something, but nobody's talking....It's a conspiracy!"


As far as making the owner of the BoB a sourpuss, having people steal parts off your property / vehicles probably had a lot to do with it.
