i'm a big car nut and when i see a car that has that 'wow' factor, i'm hooked!!! her's one car i think would be an excellent r/c car if someone would ever produce it in 1/10 scale. one of the most intimidating movie cars ever built, IMO, was the v8 interceptor from mad max. ever since i first saw that movie in 1979 and road warrior, i always wondered what make of car it was. i knew it was a ford product because the mustang hood was a dead give away, but being young at that time and having older brothers that owned muscle cars, i never knew of any cars like that being built in the states. it was after when i was in my 20's that i found out the base car was a ford falcon from australia. even after 30+ years, that is one of the coolest cars ever built. now if someone can produce a 1/10 version of the falcon and the v8 interceptor, i would be the first in line to buy it. what do you think?
after i had posted this and saw the responses, i ACTUALLY contacted hpi customer service with an email about what process do they go through to determine what car body to produce for sale. i mentioned about the v8 interceptor and how it would be nice to have a 1/10 version made for collectors like us. i received a response and the person responded agreed about the car and was going to let the designers know about the request. i hope i started something good for us collectors. if anyone would like to see the letter, just shoot me an email and i'll send it to you. maybe if we all emailed about having this car made, who knows, we'll all be the proud owners of 'the last of the v8 interceptors'.
