Out of the ruins, out from the wreckage
Can’t make the same mistakes this time
We are the children, the last generation
We are the ones they left behind
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change?
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains

We don’t need another hero,
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

Looking for something we can rely on
There’s got to be something better out there.
Mmmm, love and compassion, their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change?
Living under the fear, till nothing else remains.

All the children say,
We don’t need another hero,
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

Fifi: They say people don’t believe in heroes anymore. Well damn them! You and me, Max, we’re gonna give them back their heroes!
Max: Ah, Fif. Do you really expect me to go for that crap?
Fifi: You gotta admit I sounded good there for a minute, huh? coma, man!

The Mad Max Interceptor car started life as a standard 1973 XB GT Ford Falcon Coupe, a car exclusive to Australia. And for the first few years of its life, this is pretty much how it stayed.
There was only ever one black interceptor built for the first Mad Max.

Then, in 1976, film makers Byron Kennedy and George Miller began pre-production on Mad Max. They needed a vehicle to feature in the film as the black police ‘Interceptor’ – a high performance, evil looking Australian car.In a dystopic future Australia, law and order has begun to break down due to energy shortages. Most of the Outback has been reduced to low-populated and dystopian communities with low fuel and relatively peaceful life. However, motorcycle gangs scavenge the lands and terrorize the populace. As such, Main Force Patrol, a out-run police force, has been created to patrol the lands to uphold the remains of law and justice.

Nightrider: I am the Nightrider. I’m a fuel injected suicide machine. I am the rocker, I am the roller, I am the out-of-controller

Grease Rat: Like the sign says, ‘speed’s just a question of money. How fast you wanna go?’

Goose: [describing the supercharged Interceptor that’s idling, in particular the supercharger itself] You can shut the gate on this one, Maxie… it’s the duck’s guts!
Barry, MFP Garage Mechanic: [excitedly] She sucks nitro… with Phase 4 heads! 600 horsepower through the wheels! She’s meanness set to music and the bitch is born to run!
Goose: [looking at Max just staring at the engine] He’s in a coma, man!

The “get-out-of-jail-free card” that Goose gives the triker was an on-set joke. Because of the limited budget, the biker gang was an actual biker gang (the Vigilantes), and they had to ride to the set each day in-costume; often with their prop weapons displayed. Since the production company expected them to be pulled over by the local police, each was given a letter explaining the film’s peculiar requirements, and asking for law-enforcement’s understanding and cooperation.
