Some of the most popular posts have concerned “Famous Fords” – vehicles seen on the screen.
In the first two Mad Max movies, the original Big Foot, the first monster truck, was a modified 1974 F-250. Mel Gibson’s first police Interceptor in Mad Max was a 1974 Ford Falcon XB sedan, also slightly modified, though by the end (and into the sequel, the Road Warrior), he upgraded to a Pursuit Special, which was a black 1973 XB GT Ford Falcon Coupe – a two-door vehicle, because Max wasn’t about sharing the post-apocalypse ride. The Pursuit Special is currently on display in the Dezer Museum in Miami, FL.
Many other Ford vehicles were used – crashed and demolished – throughout the filming. A fourth installment, Mad Max: Fury Road, is scheduled for release in 2015.
