Jake Sposato remembers the moment it all began. It was 1982. He was 15 years old. He was in a movie theater watching “The Road Warrior,” starring the young actor Mel Gibson. Suddenly a black muscle car known in the film as an “Interceptor” roared across the screen.
“I saw that car,” he recalls, “and I thought: That is what a car should be. That is what I will own one day.”
Now the subculture devoted to the films’ wildly imaginative vehicles is getting ready for a momentous event.
“Mad Max: Fury Road” hits U.S. theaters on May 15, the first new Mad Max film in 30 years. Die-hards are gearing up, and putting the finishing touches on their replica vehicles and costumes.
I can imagine how psyched these fans must be for opening day! See the rest of the article at Wall Street Journal to get a peek inside the brains of these die-hard fans.
