MadMatt,
Looks like you have a pic with a fake blower...and one with a real blower?

Let me know when you guys decide on "Roadwar Midwest" and I'll update the RoadwarUSA website.

I'm thinking of putting something together in L.A. too.

The blower is fake. (I wish it was real) I had a ram air scoop made to resemble the scott hat. It used a ford lightning air filter. ( i made it up myself). Then rounded up the bits for the dummy blower setup.

Awesome PIX Matt!!
Some of those shots are in the OLD Mad Max Cars Shop's Backlot.
I remember shoehorning that 460 in there for you. Tight fit, but like a glove!

That fence in the background is the one Troy pitched the "Other" Nosecone over, after he found how bad the fit was. Fun bit of trivia, that is the reason why we make one now. I think it is still there, in many years growth of weeds. Free crappy nosecone!! That is if nobody has gone to dig it out.

You can count me in to an LA event, or possibly even the Midwest. Gas prices are falling, just give me plenty of notice!!

Guys, according to IMDB, the first Mad Max was released in Australia on 12 April, 1979. Sounds like a good date to have a 30th anniversary event next year!

Hmmm... I just found out April 12th is also Easter Sunday next year.
I guess that means we will have to do a Roadwar with a pastel color theme.
