TC where did you see that or reference it?


There is this movie called Mad Max. In it, a character called Goose has a minor accident on his Kwaka. A short time later an EH or EJ ute appears to recover the Kwaka and rider.

Do I sense some sarcasm in that reply? If so not appreciated or warrented. It was a genuine question.

It has no reference to the MFP whatsoever. The ute belongs to midge, who says, "dont wreck me truck now".

To prove my point i just grabbed the MM novel and flipped to page 108:

"minutes later they emerged from the office attached to the gas station, carrying with them the information that Jim had borrowed the truck to pickup the remains of his bike from a paddock about fifteen miles north"

There you go, i was wrong. You learn something new every day.

Nice tow-truck 8-) Needs a little bit of work to prevent it from rusting any further. But it should stay in this optical condition.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

I doubt MFP would have their own truck, if they did it wouldn't be in the pain colour scheme as an interceptor/pursuit car.

The only towing business used in film was 'Suburban towing'.
LTDHO = Supercharged Intercooled 5.7L 360rwkw, 6 speed

XB Coupe = Stock Fairmont GS with 351 and 4 speed.

But I really want a 600rwhp XB coupe!
