A few thoughts:

1) Kudos to that mom. Her son clearly has real mechanical aptitude and a passion for older vehicles. Props to her for supporting her kid's interest and giving him a healthy, constructive outlet. Who knows where that kind of encouragement will take him.

2) What an awesome looking zombie response vehicle. What is that, an old Ford Bronco? International Harvester? He sure did a nice job with the paint scheme and what I can see of the running gear looks great.

3) So this SUV has only one safety belt and essentially no safety features. I'm assuming she means only a lap belt for each seat, because otherwise he couldn't legally have anyone else in the car with him in most states. Which when you think about it wouldn't be such a bad thing for a teen driver. But my money's on each seat has one belt. In any case, this isn't an ordinary teen who's indifferent to how he drives his vehicle. He bought it with his own money and poured his heart and soul into it. I bet he'll be a helluva lot more careful driving his pride and joy than most adult drivers are with their own cars.

4) Sign this kid up.

My first car was an 80's Jeep that I daily drove for 9 years (sold it last year.... :cry: ). Old cars teach you things new cars can't. Kudos to the mom for ignoring her BF and letting the kid chase his dreams like his late father.

AWESOME VEHICLE and SKILLS by that kid!!!!

One seat belt wouldn't be illegal if that's the way it came from the factory. Grandfathered.

I'm really glad to see that "gearheads" still exist in this new generation. It really thought it died off in the early 2000's and all that was left was teens that would slap on goofy mods to their 4 cylinder import with not a clue on how to change a spark plug or do their own oil change.

On a side note, I do have to laugh with the, "is it one of ours?" line. Every once in a while I will see a Black Jeep Rubicon or a Ford 4x4 Pickup all tricked out with zombie stuff..but no visible ZS symbol. I kind of want to pull up along side of themt and ask if they are a member of Zombie Squad, and if not they should check it out. However, I don't think me being a middle age, balding guy, driving a soccer mom looking SUV is a good image to sell a young zombie fan on joining ZS.

Hey you like Zombies? You should check out Zombie Squad...I'm a member

That's an IH Scout, and now I find it's a 1963 in the article. Yup, before seatbelts.

I have seen a surprising number of ZS registered vehicles on the road or in parking lots. Probably ten in the last five years. Given how few people are registered this is quite a lot.

Oh if only there were aftermarket seatbelts available for older cars. :roll:

Y'know, there are a lot of folks driving/messing around with older vehicles. The Interwebz reveals much available in the way of mordernizing/saftifizing them with a perfunctory search.

Also, nitrous oxide and superchargers. :D
