Another shot of the Gigahorse from Mad Max Fury Road
A little off topic but I just love a workin’ truck. Labeled “Pickle”.
Possibly more Mad Max 4 vehicles?
“Cannibal Harvester” by Shaggadelic
I love this first and foremost because it is done in the style of old model car boxes. Also, it has a combine rotary thresher, and I’m a big fan of the publication “300 things you can make from a combine or schoolbus” because they cost $1500 and come with hydrostatic diesels, hoses, splitters, levers, and motors, and can be fitted with a variety of common remote-control and gps-guided systems, so it’s basically a giant robot in a box. Thirdly, there’s a lack of good off-road hearse treatments but this one has it all, including gore-intake vents, a megaphone, cannon, machine gun, fold-down window hatch, and extended fuel range.
It’s not really steampunk, but I just want to cite an inspiration, the jet car fromThe Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension.O, how this movie was the VHS backdrop to my teenage nights rolllin “Ds” in till-dawn sessions of RIFTS. Great plot, great cast (John Lithgow is a genius), chock full of character actors, bad-ass jet truck, why does this movie suck so horribly?
If it looks stupid, and it works, it ain’t stupid.
Improvised armored car from the Spanish Civil War, 1936.
