We have decided to cancel the apocalypse - there are no quality brains left to feed on.

This list is completely stupid. They left out the Ford Raptor and picked a Porsche? OK, sure. It looks to me like someone's brains have already been consumed by the undead.

F-150 Raptor with .50 cal mounted in the bed. Could haul most anything, go most anywhere, and do it in a hurry. Being the top selling truck since forever, parts should be easy to find. Hands down best choice for the Zombie apocalypse.

Obviously mistaking a grand cherokee for a regular cherokee, the regular one is the bulletproof dependable option, any grand cherokee has a large host of electrical problems, not to mention they eat transmissions like tic tacs with no manual option. That said I'm going to stick with my points and carb truck and car. The less to go wrong the better.

How about a horse?? No gas, no electronics & can go fast enough to out run walking dead & trample or jump almost anything in the way. I'm thinking a mustang--hardy, no shoes & can live on little food. Who needs a car? Speculating is fun but not a realistic situation to worry about

The car you want is a pre 85 mercedes diesel sedan. This is a mechanical engine not dependant on a computer. This car will run on diesel, kero, veg oil, or even waste oil. Without a doubt this is the car I want to get out of town should things get rough. On the other hand an older (Pre 1990) cummins powered road tractor would do the job too. Thats because You could roll start it and put the pump on manual. No electrical power is required at all, TRUTH!

ljcbowler Unfortunately you are far from the mark, my age isn't really important but its up there in years.. I have owned a 1987 jeep wrangler t, the likes of you will never own ( as it was a one of a kind prepared by Shelby for the guy I bought it from). It was a great reliable vehicle if you throw away the cat converter and the crappy carter carb that where fitted as standard,. Put on a webber remove the cat and the little clockwork emmisions box and all the pipework, and you almost double the mpg, plus it will drive right of the end of the speedo. But for all that they put a transmission from a french van in the drive train , and it has problems. I also own a 1954 Chevy pickup the thing starts first time, each push of the floor starter and the engine doesn't crank a full cycle before its running, Old points / contact breaker ignition good solid reliable engine, that has a plate on the distributer so you can set it too what grade of fuel you are using. And as I mentioned they are quite easy too convert too run on propane as mine already does. If you think I am ill informed, that is your right , but I will say I was a Engineer for Bmw and I helped in getting the current Mini into production.
