Mad Max (1979)

Car: 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT Coupe

What's cooler than a young, Australian-accented Mel Gibson decked out in leather, in a hardtop coupe rigged for destruction, and hell-bent on revenge? That's right, Mad Max defines a post-apocalyptic future, where gasoline is the most precious commodity and the only way to survive is to be one excellent driver. The Ford Falcon that Gibson's character drives is featured in the movie's hand-drawn poster art behind a smoking sawed-off shotgun-toting Mel. It's a union of everything we love.
