As motor vehicle batteries start to become a rare item, many vehicles would be requiring the 'brute-strength' approach to turn a motor into life. What would using a hand crank starter on a V-8 do for one's biceps?

It's criminal that it reached that condition before you got it 3legs. Great job on the resto.

a few months ago i saw on ebay one of the yellow and blue ford cop car mfp sedans go for under a grand, it was pretty crap looking, and was a 6 cyl automatic. they said it started but wouldnt go into reverse on the add.

i dont know if it was genuine, but looked the part, probably some stunt crash car they put through the caravan..

Storm Shadow, you can check all the specs on: http://www.madmaxmovies.com/

Spent some time on that site yesterday as it happens ( was looking for the name of Mad max's dog in the movie for a bet with a friend. I won, it's "Dog" )

If there are enough sporting goods stores to raid that everyone can wear football pads, I expect there will be plenty of parts stores to raid too. :P
