The question of the week has been: What car would you want to have during the Zombie Apocalypse and why?
Each person has different priorities when they think about surviving zombies, which means different cars will help them survive.
Whether zombies will ever come about is another story, but we had fun thinking about the best car to survive with.
Here are some answers from Grappone team members:
- Toyota Tundra Diesel: it’s a big truck and the diesel fuel will last longer.
- Hyundai Tuscon: it is used in the Walking Dead and has worked for them.
- Ford Raptor: great for off roading which will allow you to escape zombies in any terrain.
- Ford F150 Ecoboost: get’s more gas mileage than the Raptor would but still packs a punch.
- Toyota Camry Hybrid with Run Flat Tires: great fuel economy and the tires will help you run over debris.
- 1975 Toyota Celica: aerodynamic, minimal electronics, easy to fix, wedge body style is good for shin breaking.
- 2014 Ford Focus Electric: nice and quiet so zombies won’t be able to find you.
- Ford F350: huge truck you can squish zombies with.
- Ford Escape: Fuel efficient, lots of room for cargo, AWD will allow you to run over zombies.
- Toyota 4Runner: great for off roading, a lot of room inside.
- Honda Pilot Touring: AWD, sunroof will allow you to shoot on the move, tow a camper, carry supplies on the roof and in the trunk, watch movies, navigation to help you avoid populated areas, great on gas.
- Hyundai Elantra: a zombie version has already been made.
- Toyota Prius: gas tank will last longer than most other cars, might not be able to go fast but can go far, gas will be very scarce.
- An Amphibious vehicle (?) : similar to what Nick Topping built in 1996, he used a Ford Transit engine.
What do you think is the most important feature for your zombie get away vehicle to have? You heard some of our opinions, we want to hear yours!
Have you heard of Route 66? Most people have. It was the famous 2,451 mile long highway. It went through eight states, from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California. I would consider it the most famous road in the country, but that’s just my opinion. Traveling along this road would be like traveling through history. How cool! Sadly the original road does not exist. There are still parts of it in certain towns but we will never get America’s Main Street back.
You are probably wondering by now where I am going with this. I always enjoy ‘this day in history’ facts. On June 27, 1985 the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials decertified Route 66 as a highway, removing all highway signs and disposing most of the road.
Although you can’t travel the original Route 66, it is feature in the movie Cars, it has it’s own song, and there was a TV series based on it.
My question to you: If you could travel back in time what car would you want to drive down Route 66?
