The Cars That Ate Paris, 1974

Visit: New South Wales
An eye-catching title and an even more eye-catching poster image gave a huge boost to this black comedy about a small, out-of-the-way town where the inhabitants make a living from engineering road accidents and selling the spare parts.
The ‘Paris’ of the title is not the French capital but a fictitious little Australian town. It’s actually Sofala, an old gold-rush town in the Turon River Valley, about 30 miles from Bathurst in the Western Plains, west of Sydney, New South Wales.
