In an era before The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Maze Runner, and any host of the myriad of other dystopian flicks of today, there was the cult classic late-70s action flick Mad Max.

FEATURES- SacrilegeLS – Bill Trovato 5th Gen Camaro

Face the facts: if a man knows enough about anything to write a book about it, he’s probably an expert (or darn close).
