Great classic
26 July 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Fantastic Australian cult movie in the class of Mad Max and Running on Empty.Had to be around that era to understand the buzz of a GTHO and other classic cars.Probably a bit late for its time.Wish I could find a good copy of the movie though.To see the wheels spinning and to see the shaker working on the HO is something to remember as well as the mechanic spanner.If your younger than middle age and not Australian you'll probably won't understand some of the humor,such as "Spanner,grab the bottle of BUNDY will Ya".Jon Blake was a fantastic actor that could have had the status of Mel Gibson if it wasn't for a tragic car accident that landed him as a paraplegic with brain damage.I for one as well as a lot of other people where saddened when we heard of this event.Classic Aussie actor of his time.Great in The Light horsemen with a bunch of other great Australian actors.
