1974 ford falcon xb

A restored Australian Main Force Patrol 1974 Ford Falcon XB Interceptor on display in New Washington during Remembrance Day, where relics of allied nations which fell during the Resource Wars on the late 20th century are displayed so that our children and our children’s children may never forget just how close we came to the brink.

“I remember right before the end, when things got REALLY nasty in the Northwest Territory. The five of us that were left in the local MFP branch, including our captain, were out on patrol almost ‘round the clock, only ever stopping for petrol or to report a wreck. After months of that, our top pursuit man got into a row with the captain, screaming about how we were no better than any of the scum we chased down and the only difference was that we had the bronze. He quit soon after. Cheeky bastard stole this special car we were working on on his way out as well. Never really figured out what happened to him, I was busy with trying to get out of Oz myself, you see.”
