I’ve always been too busy making a mess in my garage to be a good prepper, but after learning that the main plotline for the 2007 blockbuster I Am Legend is that a virus based vaccine has caused the world’s population to die or turn into mutant vampire-zombies…I’m thinking maybe I might need a good low-key bug-out vehicle. If I had a Pinzgauer, Laplander, or a 4X4 Quigley van, people are going to try and join me in an escape from the zombies, but if I had an Isuzu Trooper with rear seat delete and a hidden camper setup…that’d be stealthy and apocalypse ready. You’ll have to fix the headgasket before it goes anywhere, but that’s what garages are for, right? Ugg. I’m gonna be so hosed when the zombie apocalypse comes and all of my cars are apart. Can I get a ride? Find this 1989 Isuzu Trooper II offered for $4,500 in Culver City, CA via craigslist.
We at DT tend to focus our automotive efforts on things that go fast, look cool, and give you that zoom-zoom feeling, but there are times when a car is more than the sum of its speed. There are times when handling isn’t as important as comfort, and there are even times when a car is a home. This next thing looks like a good option if you need a cheap way to travel with a family during these odd coronavirus days.

If Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were born into a trailer park instead of wealthy globetrotting families (actually Epstein was born poor and built his wealth thru guile and treachery), this next vehicle might have been the limit of their damage to the world. Imagine if the neighboring trailer is occupied by their friend “Prince” Andy who comes over to listen to some Steely Dan records and children/ladies/anyone would know to give this thing a wide berth. The world would have been a safer place for everyone because the Wrassle Castle is the 1970s version of the Free Candy van. Find this 1974 Ford Econoline Camper offered for $9900 in Chesapeake, VA. Tip from SeanT.
