Summary
<b>Copyright - All Rights Reserved - Black Diamond Images</b>The last time I was in Silverton was in 2009 and the impressive car out front was a replica of the Mad Max ll 1973 V8 XB GT Ford Falcon Coupe which doubled in the movie as the Mad Max Interceptor Pursuit Special driven by Max Rockatansky.Mad Max II - The Road Warrior 1981 was filmed here in Silverton and also in parts of Broken Hill. The first Mad Max film was actually shot in Victoria and the third around Coober Pedy, South Australia.When I arrived here on the 16th July 2019 I was shocked to see the Interceptor gone and replaced with a replica actioned up VW Beetle which to my mind just does not cut the mustard.I suspect it had something to do with the change of ownership of the hotel.No one could tell me where it was removed to or why it was removed. I did find out from the owner at the Mad Max 2 Museum at the end of the road that it was not in his museum, although there are several other replicas in the museum.Getting a shot of this hotel is notoriously difficult without getting cars in the view so I figured the only way was to stay overnight in the Hotel Accommodation so I could be up before the tourists arrived next morning. Even so I was prevented from getting the wide angle shot because as early as I was someone beat me to it and parked out front of the beer garden. BTW the accommodation was excellent.
