are a gang of motor bikers, fans of metal music
(“head-bangers”), made of iron scrap. They live near
the scrap pile in the car junkyard. They ride their heavy motorized
buggies and spell terror to all around them. They are totally
rude, insolent and strong. They are armed to their teeth with
scissors, razor blades and drills.
Iron’s detest water, and they are afraid of it because
it brings rust. Their bar – den is in a busted VW Beetle
engine compartment. There they listen to Iron Maiden and Metallica,
noisily drinking and getting drunk on engine oil – “Hey,
give me a Shell and a double Texaco!” - and then they
have arm-wrestling matches.
