This thread is dedicated to any vehicles that could survive or be of use after the apocalypse!

The world is full of amazing moving contraptions. Share them!

Volkswagons are incredibly easy to fix, I hear, because they're very simple. Cars running on a similar setup might make for early crafting, and such.

Check this great little blog about Russia's on-ground ferry haulers. Russia is choke-full of great ideas for a grim future:

Hah, that's awesome! I came across this link and minus the zombies, some of these tough buggers could survive or be in use by the factions. Though exceedingly rarefied outside of old war zones, armories, and survivalist compounds. Many older cars, and those hardened against EM blasts could survive just as the VW van, where most with lots of computer bits anywhere near those nukes that went off would be fried. :(

particularly the Mercedes Zetros would be a good one for the icy conditions.

Replace the camo fabric with plate steel and you'd have yourself a high platform in which to see and snipe freaks from afar.

Basic convoy transport...Also has a height advantage

Obviously, the truck would be hard pressed to survive the holocaust; but the tower idea is pretty sweet for a mobile outpost/watch tower! Perhaps it could be hand-cranked or for the real die-hard DIY'ers of the bleak future...Steam-punk power baby!

As far as "military" style vehicles (and depending on petrol resources), I'm sure some survivors will want their transportation to sip gas and not guzzle it...Remember the lesson learned from the road warrior!

...And who said the end of the world couldn't be sexy.

How about the lowly motorhome?...I can picture it with plate steel reinforcements and with a roof top hatch, it could make a great (albeit slow moving) survivial vehicle:

and now the pic we've all been waiting for! The man who became the Road Warrior...Mel Gibson!

Opps! Sorry 'bout that...Wrong "Road Warriors"...Here's it is:
