There are a few thoughts when it comes to armoring or protecting valuable assets — one is to lower the visibility of said asset, and the other is to armor it up. If an old dirty van filled with cash is the equivalent of a camouflaged sniper, then this bulletproof ATM is the Maginot Line. However, if you covered up the ATM signs, you could probably use this 6.0 PowerStroke diesel equipped beast as a sweet weekend/camping vehicle, and double as a zombie apocalypses survival vehicle too.

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.
The list of small 4-door pickup trucks isn’t very large — a fact pointed out by the builder of this custom machine, who writes: I built this because I have always felt that the US manufacturers totally missed the boat on the mid-size 4-door pickup market. They built some – but they were all weird-shaped, weird-looking, […]
Do you need a car that is simultaneously the epitome of and antidote for the zombie apocalypse?

The GMC Safari was a badge engineered version of the popular Chevrolet Astro, but it could be optioned without the tall greenhouse and glass windows — instead it has the panel sides of a creeper work van. The Safari/Astro/Express wasn’t a large van, but it offered a frugal driving experience compared to a full sized […]
If you are in the market for a tough off road vehicle for zombie apocalypse survival (or whatever…maybe you commute in south side Chicago rush hour traffic?), people are going to tell you that you need a 4X4…but those folks are dead wrong. It just isn’t enough wheels on the ground. Maybe 6X6? Gettin’ closer, […]
The Phoenix from Greek mythology was a legendary bird that would consume itself in flame and then rise from the ashes.

This next tip comes from JAS who writes: Dear DT, No, this is not your usual 1966 VW. This is for any survivalist out there who will need to ”bug’ out in a hurry at the next zombie apocalypse (or 2016, when Hillary Clinton is elected president). It seems to have everything necessary for Arizona […]
Memorial Day was yesterday, so why not post another cool military ride. The CMP (Canadian Military Pattern) truck was a military vehicle built from pre-war designs created by various Canadian manufacturers for British Commonwealth ally use. The CMP was essentially a larger version of the US Army Jeep — a communal design built by anyone […]
