I took the tank, not that I'd want one, maybe an APC or something. More cargo space, like a piranha class AmTrack, floats too.

Moto Cross. Good on gas, quick and while everyone is stuck in traffic on the highway i could fly by in the breakdown lane. If the breakdown lanes full, i could just ride in the grass and get to where ever i need to go quickly.

I picked the Hummer. I can't drive a tank or a chopper.
Depends on the severity of the outbreak though. If it was days after and the streets were blocked, I'd take the bike too. There are trails up into the mountains about 500m from my house.

68 VW Baja.

Good gas milage, good speed, air cooled, six kinds of off roadiness and with a skid plate on it you can throw it over a traffic wall.

(I should also throw in that at the moment I want a Baja more then I want air.)

Pickup truck w/cover and a mountain bike in back in case it breaks down.

Doesn't the Zombie Survival Guide have something in it about bikes? Something to the effect of "ditch the car, grab a bike?" The logic being that there's no fuel needed (except your own stamina, of course) and less size/weight limitation on where you can go with it.

That's actually a pretty good choice since you can haul a small group of fellow survivors. A customized van would be good too. Anything with storage space -- could also be used as living space. In a survival situation, many of us would probably find ourselves living...

....

...in a van down by the river!! :P Mwahahahahahaha!! :mrgreen:

I picked the HMMVH but i would prefer a Reo 2 and a half ton truck, tons of storage space, high off the ground for off-road. Fit a dozer blade at the front and knock them burnt out vehicles out of the way with ease. And if i was lucky, have a MG on the ring above the cab too.

you should read the old "Traveler" series by DB Drumm he drove around in a mini van with a Wankel rotary engine with a variable carb that would burn anything. No zombies though, but all 13 available on Amazon.

As for me a Military Hummer would be nice but until then my own Pick up would have to do.

As for the who bicycle idea of Brooks' just seems a little suicidal to me.[/url]

I want something really big. I want it to suck up as much gas as it possibly can.

I want it to have no off road abilities what-so-ever. I also want it to be a real bitch to work on in the field.

The Jeep Limited Edition Warthog. 4 inch bullet proof plating, mag buffer suspension, and total seating for 3, and a huge gun in the back. :D
Speed Racer had a soup dispenser in the Mach 5. I swear it.

I'm going with the Black Hawk. It can protect you while re-fueling (i.e., the original Dawn of the Dead)

Im going with the HMMWV.....High Mobility Multi-Wheeled Vehicle...or Humvee. Hummer is a civilian knockoff of the Humvee. Actually, if what I read recently is true, you cannot buy a DeWaT Humvee (Decomissioned War Trophy)....but if you salvage the parts to rebuild one, thats ok. The biggest thing to consider is what kind of fuel you would want it to run on. Conversion to Ethanol/Gas (E85) or BioDiesel would be the smartest bet as gasoline and diesel are going to be diminished.

Its also totally silent, so instead of making hundreds of zombies follow the sound of your big ass American V8, you can just pedal on through past them without them really noticing.

One thing I don't like about that plan is that you're not going to be going nearly as fast as you would in a car, and you have no cover.
