How to Outfit Your Zombie Survival Vehicle

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 154

The selection of a post-apocalyptic survival vehicle is of paramount importance. Don't expect to find a fully stocked H3 (a la Zombieland) just waiting for you to come along and snag it. The fact is, quality all-terrain vehicles will be highly sought after commodities in the wake of a zombie invasion. If you don't have a Z-Day vehicle on hand, or at least have a contingency plan in place that would allow you to acquire one, you could find yourself stuck fleeing the city in a broken down clunker.

You won't know how far or how difficult the road will be until it happens. An ideal Armageddon automobile should be capable of traversing difficult, unpaved terrain, while still able to maintain high speed, long distance highway cruising. And unless you are fortunate enough to establish a super-fortified position to hunker down in from the get-go, your vehicle may be the closest thing you have to a safehouse for a long time.

The lack of reliable sources of electricity in the wake of a zombie attack will be crippling. To maintain the use of certain electronic devices, be sure to keep AC power adaptors in your vehicle. These handy gadgets will allow you to run computers and other portable electronics, and recharge flashlights, radios, and virtually any device that runs on a rechargeable lithium ion battery.

Other basic considerations include ground clearance, seating and storage capacity, lighting, and armor rating. A high ground clearance is crucial for any off-road travel, and will allow your vehicle to ford streams and drive across piled up bodies of the undead. Seating capacity is equally important, as survival will depend in many ways on the size of your group. A Porsche will get you out of town fast, but wandering the wasteland without a sizeable party will be a lonely and daunting prospect. Apart from seating, the storage capacity of your vehicle will determine how much weaponry and survival gear you can bring with you. The bigger the vehicle, the better off you'll be. "Sportsmobiles" and other modified vans and SUVs with roof racks and side mounts are an excellent way to increase your carrying capacity. Lastly, while sun roofs and convertible sports cars are fun to drive, they have structurally weak entry points that can be exploited in seconds by a determined zombie. Ditch the sport cars and pick up something that will afford more than a modicum of protection while you are seated inside. Keep in mind that "metropolitan" SUVs (CRVs, RAV-4s, etc.) are often no better than a sedan in terms of overall zombie preparedness. Land Rovers, Jeeps, Hummers, and after-market modded vans and trucks are an ideal choice.
