Okay, so Mad Max is not really known as one of the great Steampunk movies. But if you go back and look at the movie again there are some very steam-like elements in the film. Note the liberal use of goggles. And my guess is that if your into Steampunk you probably love these movies... Well okay, at least the first two... Okay maybe the original.

The films in fact have inspired a 3 day post-apocalyptic party that happens each year to celebrate the films and the yummy geekness of the fans that surround the movies. 

This year the blowout, called Wasteland Weekend will be held in the Mojave desert outside of Los Angeles on Sept. 23-25. Check out the clip from last year. And remember it's a dry heat!
