Damnation Alley Super Car

A friend of mine emailed me the image below

He's never read Damnation Alley, but he did read John Hodgman's "That is All" where Hodgman makes a throwaway reference along the lines of "I see you have my Damnation Alley-style super-car" and he asked if this could be it.

That's pretty nifty.

Here's a picture of the actual vehicle used in the film, the Landmaster.

It's a neat looking vehicle, but those promotional shots are way too clean and bright.


  1. I think the most interesting thing here is the claim on the Landmaster's wikipedia entry, that states that the Landmaster was used in an episode of Highway to Heaven. Some further research shows that this episode deals with a tycoon whose policies damage the environment taken to the future to see the consequences of that policy, so I suppose it's at least plausible that we might see the Landmaster, but really Highway to Heaven is just about the last place I would have expected to see it.
