Those are unreal. Extremely well done!

I take issue with your calling Max's BoB Pursuit Special an Interceptor, though. ;)

These are code-3 custom cars.

As far as the interceptor reference.
Not sure about your information, but the black Holden Monaro that Night Rider stoled was a Pursuit Special.
Every other reference to the BoB Interceptor is called an "Interceptor". Besides that, its called the Interceptor in the movie as well. When Goose and Charlie are waiting with Johnny for Max and Fifi to get back. Charlie speaks through his voice machine... "Has Max seen the Interceptor?" And in Road Warrior when he gets to the compound and they take his car. The guy in the yellow lift spoke to him saying.. "A real piece of history. The last of the V-8 Interceptors. It'd be a shame to blow it up."
So yes, according to BOTH MM movies, it is indeed a Black on Black Interceptor.

I would have to agree, it is reffered to as the Interceptor in both movies. Pursuit Special is also used through Mad max as well.

Ehrm, does it say 'AUTHENTIC STYING' on that box :) LOL
Seriously, those are great models, I have looked at my own hotwheels Falcon a few times, but other than a paint job I just feel my hands aren't up to starting on something that small :P

Those who know me well know that I've had this particular gripe since, oh, 1981, when that silly mechanic muddied the waters. IMO MM1 is canon; what some random character in the sequel says is immaterial.

The "Black-on-Black" (I don't know where that name came from; it wasn't used in the movie) was a Pursuit Special just as much as the Monaro. In point of fact, there is only ONE by-name reference to the BoB in "Mad Max," and that is by the MFP dispatcher (just before Max is ambushed by Bubba). Please refer to my page here: http://webspace.webring.com/people/ic/cegropp/MM83.htm

Charlie actually says "I think they're out there... I can see the Interceptor," which I take to mean that the others have arrived. (Why would he ask Goose if Max has seen the BoB, particularly right then? Did Charlie even know about it?) Also, if it's still in the garage, how can Charlie see it from the office?

Finally, why would you have vehicles divided by classes and colors—Pursuit (yellow), Interceptor (yellow), Pursuit Special (black)—and then confuse everything by calling a black car by a yellow car's name? Pursuits were standard pursuit vehicles; Interceptors were hot rods for the top drivers; and Pursuit Specials were rare supercars for the really great drivers.

I'm OK with it being called an interceptor, but only in the way that certain Ford Crown Victorias are also badged as Police Interceptors.

I know it's a lost cause, but I feel like Kimberly-Clark must feel about all facial tissue being referred to as Kleenex: It's not right, but the whole world is doing it, so what are ya gonna do? :)
