The Marine Corps LAV or the Army Bradley fighting vehicle. I'm going with the LAV, I believe it's quicker than the Bradley and it just looks bad ass!

I'd prefer an MI-17, with the 192x5.7mm rocket loadout. Atleast unlike in the harrier, I can transport alot of extra SHTF supplies in an MI-17, such as an H1, and plenty of fuel, ammo, and food. Edit: even cram the whole family inside

I would love to have the LAV-25 if I could. For civvies, I think a 3/4 ton Suburban or pickup truck is the best choice, more interchangibility of parts.

How about an armored recreational vehicle? I would have added a picture of the "Stripes" RV but I can't find one. Oh well. But seriously, a fullsize 3/4 or 1 ton ford/chevy longbed 4wd. Just to show you CAN take it all with you.

Urban, I agree with the on/off road motorcycle. Light and fast is the way to escape. Rural, the horse is practical. But I'd hate to give up the comforts of a UAV.

I saw an article on this subject a few years back, and first they mentioned what most people expect: military vehicles and offroad beasts. What you actually need at minuimum is a vehicle you are sure you're going to find parts for. If you're pulling tires off abandoned wrecks, you'll have trouble finding 38" super swampers. Same goes for a 1500hp turbine engine. Look at what is currently one of the most prolific cars or trucks on the road today. That's what you'll be scavenging parts from. Taurus' and Camrys are all over the place, and so are F-150's and Dodge trucks.

None of these survive EMP right? Maybe the horse. What about an SUV/truck with 2 mountain bikes on the back - if it gets too thick or the EMP wipes the electronics, no more gas, etc it sure beats hoofing it.
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 6:25:29 AM EDT
A dune buugy, covered in un-cured hides and corrugated tin sheets. Add a few spikes, skulls, and a harpoon, and you're ready for SHTF/TEOTWAWKI.

This is why my personal SHTF vehicle is a 1991 GMC K2500 Suburban with a turbo'd 6.2 diesel. Yes, the engine does have some electronics on it, but they can be easily bypassed/replaced. The nice thing about an older diesel is that you can remove the batteries and the alternator and it will still run, the only electrical items are to shut the engine down (which can be done manually). All other electronics can be replaced after the EMP is gone with parts that were not in use during said EMP.
Link Posted: 5/29/2003 8:21:20 AM EDT
Treetop et al. are on the right track. I would suggest a Kawasaki KLR-650.

Vehicles with points are unaffected by EMP, electronic ignition is fried on the other hand. Hint keep a spare distributor. Best SHTF would be an 85-88 Toyota SR5 Pick up or 4Runner with 4wd, 5spd, solid front axle, 22r engine, 31-33" tires with a 1" lift, and EFI. Oh and an MP3 player, they don't skip. Better milage than the FJ series and almost as rugged. We are talkin civvie I'd assumed. Otherwise I'll just get my mechanic John, Jesse James, and an M1A2 and see what we can come up with.

Edit to Add: Auto Gas STC. ususally involves a few new gaskets and some paper work. EMP will not affect the engines of small airplanes. ignition is done by duel magnetos. up to around 300 hp they have carburators. Fuel injection on bigger piston engines is mechanical, NOT EFI. Ben, The Emu

One problem though...the pic you posted was the V8 Interceptor in it's Mad Max form. It would be much better suited for SHTF/TEOTWAWKI in it's Road Warrior condition....extra fuel cells in trunk, additional 5gal jerry cans, extra mounted spare tires in back window, FU boobytrap explosive antitheft system, machete holdout stashed underneath..... I think a bike of some sort would probably be near the top of my list. Maybe one of those Russian Ural sidecar rigs with 2wd (bike & sidecar wheel have power). You probably could order it with a pintle mount for your RPD....
