2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Review: An Aging Luxury Car in a New Pickup Truck Wrapper

  2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Review: An Aging Luxury Car in a New Pickup Truck Wrapper 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Review: An Aging Luxury Car in a New Pickup Truck WrapperLeaning more toward luxury than ruggedness is a tall order in a market that caters to sheer ability. But nevertheless, the Sierra 1500 Denali mostly delivers, as long as you can overlook the dated dashboard and some other compromises inside. You just have to be willing to pay for it.

It’s truly a lovely day for movie-car aficionados. Lloyd’s Classic Car Auctions is offering up 13 of the most extreme motion-picture cars from one of the coolest post-apocalyptic flicks this side of Zombieland.

Mad Max: Fury Road brought the dystopian, war-torn cinematic universe back to the big screen with great directing by George Miller and fantastic performances from Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and the late Hugh Keays-Byrne, who returned from the original Mad Max. All received nominations and accolades for their work in the film, but they couldn’t have done it without the assistance of another star cast: A crazy, gas-swilling cavalcade on wheels. The film centers around a rowdy, violent car chase involving a slew of highly customized vehicles that are unlike anything we’ve seen on film before or since.

Slide Into Some Old School Luxury With This 1966 Plymouth Fury III Convertible

  Slide Into Some Old School Luxury With This 1966 Plymouth Fury III Convertible It’s now available through the Lucky Collector Car Auction. Introduced in the mid 1950s, the Plymouth Fury came at a time when people were really starting to demand style out of their cars. It was offered as a level above the Belvedere and swapped between being a full-size car to a mid-size car, and landing on being a full-sized car again by the time this 1966 Plymouth Fury III Convertible was made. © Provided by Motorious This 1966 Plymouth Fury III Convertible was made under the fourth generation run of the Plymouth Fury, and was made around a Chrysler C-body platform.

Thirteen of the film’s most recognizable cars will be up for auction from Lloyd’s, with all lots closing August 26. The selection even includes the War Rig, the Tatra T815 prime mover that hauls the tanker that sets the course of the movie. The mishmash of Tatra chassis and Chevy Fleetmaster bodywork proves a worthy steed for the film’s two main protagonists—plus some precious cargo. It also comes with the tagalong ball trailer as used in the film.

Immortan Joe, played by Hugh Keays-Byrne, rides in a formidable vehicle commensurate with his position atop The Citadel. Dubbed the Gigahorse, the massive, lifted contraption was made from a pair of 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Villes that were widened and mated together in a bizarre yet striking way that seems all too appropriate for the Wasteland. It’s powered by a pair of V-8 engines and has a flamethrower and harpoon launcher, just like any self-respecting warlord would demand.

Adventure Motorcycle Review: The Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250

  Adventure Motorcycle Review: The Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250 Harely-Davidson has been making iconic motorcycles since 1903, but this is its first foray into adventure bikesMotorcycles have long been able to access remote areas of the world. Thrill-seekers like Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman chose the BMW R 1200 GS to take them on a trip around the world. And the Indian military uses the Royal Enfield Himalayan to patrol mountain passes as high as 18,700 feet above sea level. They are highly-capable machines that can go places larger vehicles simply cannot; ideal for solo adventurers looking to get off-pavement.

Leading the charge into battle, the Doof Wagon is a MAN 8×8 missile carrier that’s been repurposed for psychological warfare. The rolling bandstand is festooned with speakers and serves as a stage for an electric-guitar-wielding Doof Warrior that rallies the War Boys better than any bugler ever could.

Max Rockatansky’s V-8 Interceptor makes an appearance early in Fury Road before it’s claimed by the War Boys and repurposed into “Razor Cola.” In either guise, it’s the same muscle-bound, Ford Falcon form that fans remember from the original. This reimagined version still has the characteristic blower protruding from the engine bay, whose power-adding potential is creatively enhanced by the War Boys.

Nux, a War Boy from Immortan Joe’s Citadel, drives a turbocharged, V-8-powered 1934 three-window Chevy coupe that gets some important screen time in the film. The bare-metal creation has one of the wildest exhausts we’ve seen and was a part of the Petersen Museum’s Hollywood Dream Machines exhibit.

2022 Indian Motorcycles FTR S Review: The Front End Needs Some Fine-Tuning

  2022 Indian Motorcycles FTR S Review: The Front End Needs Some Fine-Tuning 2022 Indian Motorcycles FTR S Review: The Front End Needs Some Fine-TuningScything through Las Vegas, I rode it down the Strip's greasy tarmac, to Nellis Air Force base to watch F-22s launch, and out into the sparse terrain past Red Rock State Park. And I took it off-road, because the bike I had on loan came equipped with Dunlop's flat-track tires, and man was it solid out there. I may have also allegedly popped a couple wheelies trying to impress one of The Drive's old executives who was riding a Harley-Davidson Street Glide with me.

Known during filming as Convoy no. 1, this 1932 Ford was nicknamed “Elvis”. It’s powered by a 702-cubic-inch GMC V-12 normally found in a ’60s medium-duty truck and it’s topped with a machine gun for convoy-escort duty.

Another convoy car is this Jaguar MKVII—which finds itself a long way from the idyllic British countryside. This particulr MKVII is supposedly one of three similar vehicles that were built for filming, this being the sole survivor.

One of the most exciting parts of an already frenetic scene in the film was the mid-chase boarding sequence that had stunt actors vaulting from one moving car to another using a “pole car.” Our favorite pole car is this 1956 Pontiac Safari that’s been converted from wagon to ute (because Australia). The pole used to insert War Boys into battle is counterbalanced by an engine block, naturally, and is mounted on a stretched wheelbase.

Sabre Tooth” is a Ford F-250 tow truck fitted with a harpoon launcher and a pair of earth-gripping claws made for snagging and stopping rogue vehicles. You know that Fury Road had some outlandish vehicles when this contraption looks almost normal.

This flame-throwing, chopped Dodge sedan breathes through a Potvin-style front-mounted blower—or at least it does for the sake of the movie.

Unlike many of the vehicles in Fury Road, “El Dorado” has an actual finish. Supposedly covered in petroleum pitch, the hood of the Cadillac is carved with a relief of dancing Death and accented by engravings on the doors. This flamethrower-equipped drop-top also deployed tire-shredding caltrops from the rear.

Rip the Tommy-gun-inspired, drum-fed machine gun from the roof and this chopped Chevy is probably the most road-ready ride of all—besides, of course, the F-250.

This 1948 Buick was originally intended to be equipped with a pole in the same fashion as the Safari, so it got a heavy-duty chassis that included a dually rear axle. Filming plans changed, however, and instead the ’48 was blessed with a slew-ring turret and machine gun.
