Just because GTOs are rare in Australia in the real world, it doesn't mean you can't use one in a video game. The fact of being Right Hand Drive is almost irrelevant, every vehicle in this game is RHD. It is an un-necessary amount of extra coding to implement Left Hand & Right Hand Drive cars in a game where the player can get in & out of the car. 'Use-case' wise it would be a total can of worms.


I totally understand what you're saying, I'm just pointing out that while there is a variety of American cars available in game, in the real world (and the overall Mad Max universe) they're uncommon. That being said, there are US built cars scattered throughout the movies (like Fifis LeMans). I know I'm reading too much into a game, but I recall watching coverage of the Black Saturday bushfires and seeing footage of a man risking his life to save his beloved AP6 Valiant while his house and brand new Land Cruiser burned around him. Who's to say that wouldn't happen if people were fleeing a war zone?

RHD GTOs are rare, as they're private imports that have been converted. Only Poncho you could buy from a dealer here was the parisienne 4-door hardtop.

There even was right hand drive GTOs! Obviously guys don't know that many American cars were available in RHD.

I don't know where you guys are seeing Fairlane or Galaxie in this.

The Ripper doesn't have: the crease mid way down the sides, the bubbled roof/curve in the top of the windshield/windscreen, or the curve in the top of the A pillar (where it meets the side window) that the fairlane has.

The tips of the fenders are flat matching the Pontiac Tempest/GTO, the bumpers (especially the rear) are a far closer match to the Pontiac (especially the ridge detail & licence plate slot). The recessed panel where the tail lights were, & the way the rear deck flows down to where the trunk lid was (as opposed to being flat) matches the Pontiac.

Also the Rear wheel well/opening is the same height as the front wheel well, matching the Pontiac as opposed to the fairlanes lower rear wheel opening.

The tops of the fenders are not flat like the Fairlane or Galaxie, but are rounded & come to a point, resembling the Pontiac. Lastly near the bottom of the Rear 1/4 panels (between the rear wheel & bumper) - there is a small ridge, which matches the Pontiac & is not present on the Fairlane or Galaxie.

EDIT: Also, just because the Mad Max movies mainly feature Australian cars, it doesn't mean that all cars in the game must be Australian. Need I remind you all that there was at least one Pontiac (Lemans or GTO convertible) in the first movie.

looks much more like a 1966 Ford Fairlane than a GTO
