Yes. I don't really care for Dodge besides the Challenger, but I'd go with that one just for looks.


If we're talking reliability I'd probably go with a European VW Passat with the 1.9 TDI. Reliable, cheap and rather easy to fix.

Unless the zombie apocalypse blows over quickly, whatever car or bike you have is not going to last long. Gas goes bad after a few months, so unless you're brewing your own ethanol at that point then you're up shit creek without a paddle.

Diesels, on the other hand, may be more viable, but considering most diesel vehicles in the US are giant fuel guzzlers, they'll be of fairly limited practicality.

Holy fucking shit the circlejerk over this car never ceases to amaze me. This is supposed to be a thread about post-apocalyptic desert cruisers/utility vehicles for traveling and foraging and you pick a car that can go 300 miles before having to stop for 10 hours (assuming a standard 110v outlet) just because it's electric and trendy

Christ


My submission: 4th gen camaro ss

Ugly as all fuck, but LS1 gets almost 30mpg highway, power to go places fast and outrun enemies, enough ground clearance to be reasonable in flat terrain, old enough that i can fix any problems with it myself but new enough so that it's decently reliable and has enough on the road to scavenge parts from if need be.

I'm assuming this is an apocalypse that kills enough people that most of my time is spent highway driving, going town to town scavenging supplies

Unless its powered by a meager amount of corn fuel or by a battery charged by small wind turbines, you might as well say goodbye to any motorized vehicles.

My advice would be to get some horses and use your car as a carriage. That'll at least last a while, before you have to build a carriage out of wood or scavenged material.

Mountain bikes would be good if you didn't need to carry food, water supplies, shit to barter with, and all the other things you would need to survive with, especially if you were in a small group (let's face it, if an apocalypse happens, you aren't going to do things by yourself. You'll only be more exposed and you'll lose your mind faster).

Unless of course, you can use a few people on Mountain Bikes to haul a Pickup Truck loaded with supplies in it.

You don't need a mountain of gear for when you're on the move. A backpack and two medium sized duffels crossed over your shoulders would be more than enough, and that's perfectly easy to hike or pedal with. Figure a group of 3-5 with this setup, a rifle for a few of the good shooters, a shotgun, and a sidearm/melee for each, and you'd be set

If you had that much necessary gear that you needed a truck to carry it all, you'd be better off establishing a base and growing your own crops

Admittedly, It has a max speed of 80km/h, but It's the Apocalipse, I doubt the roads are up to much faster, plus you only need to outrun zombies, and if they can run at 80Km/h, then it probably wouldn't make a difference what car you drive.

You are an absolute retard if you dont know gas goes bad overtime, this is a fact, google it cunt

Second, you need 1/50 of all the tools you need to fix a bike compared to the amount of tools you need yo fix a car

Ehat are you going to do when you need to change your clutch, or an axle/driveshaft?

You ate going to go to a garage and fix it?

There are zombies in a garage, there are people in a garage, they both are going to eat you


You wont be able to drive in the city with a car, its a zombie apocalypse tje streets are full of traffic jams because people tried to escape

Its not tiring, its just like walking, and you are going to have to walk once you run out of gas, and no you cannot go to a pump, someone already took the gas, its a zombie apocalypse, you think someone is going to leavea gallon just for you?
come on nigga

You are going to run out of gas, and when you do you are going to try to escape by foot, but zombies will catch you, they run faster, and they dont get tired

Ridimg a bike while escaping from zombies is a shitload more effective than running because you ran out of gas

You can always haul a small trailer, like one of those trolliers or whatever they are called in english where babies sit and put all your stuff there

Lets not forget bikes dont make sound, when zombies hear the engine they will go towards the sound source

Its fucking stupid to think a gas powered machine will be useful when shit hits the fan

And even if the gas DOES go bad, this doesn't happen in at least 4 months. Bear in mind the gas stored in gas tanks will take longer to go bad.

I have a mountain bike. Do not even try to convince me you can go offroad easily with a mountain bike without having to get off at some places and walk.

And don't even think about riding it dowhill with a trailer behind you.


And even if you don't sprint all day long.
Say you are going at a slow pace.
Then a herd of zombies appear ahead.
You do a uturn and try to outrun them
At this point you have been on your bicycle everyday for 3 weeks.
Your ass is sore and developing a rash.
Your back is nearly broken.
Your legs are burning.
And now you have to bike uphill while towing a 20kg trailer.

If you really think you will be faster than a sprinting person, you are just beyond saving.

Once you leave the city you have to stop worryibg about zombies and worry about making it to the poles, where zombies cant survive

You wont get to the poles with one tank of gas, all tje gas in the highway gas stations is gone, you want gas? Well enter a city full of zombies for your gallon of gas that will be used in leaving such city
