everyone has their own preference in vehicle make and year, but when SHTF what car would you have? Remember that this car is your means of transportation as well as a rolling safehouse. List vehicle as well as upgrades, mods, items you keep in said vehicle. aaaaaaand go.

It all would depend on if I'm by myself or with partners.

Solar powered/nuclear powered/wind powered/lightning powered/organic mass powered blimp. I would fly above cloud level in my massive floating fortress 24/7 365 days a year. The floating ballasts would be covered in solar panels, lightning rods and rain nets (and optimally some devices to extract the abundant nitrogen from the atmosphere to harness as fuel). The nuclear engine would act mostly as a backup and failsafe, interfacing with all other power generators. There would be 'rain nets' outfitted all over the upper half of the blimp, devices that collect condensation for a constantly renewed supply of cloud fresh water with a simple gravity aided filtration and collection system. The same system could also be outfitted to charge batteries from static electricity at cloud level, the condensation doubling as a conductive agent.

It would be outfitted with a garden. Basically a concentrated food garden growing energy dense plants for food, medicine and energy (the plants grown can be processed and refined into natural gas for helium as needed, while it would be energy intensive and totally unfeasible to do this constantly it can be done periodically in small increments to refill the ballasts)

A research center, a laboratory for analysis of all kinds (regular scheduled tasks would be monitoring of the energy harvesting instruments, rainwater and atmospheric analysis for determining radiation levels and production of medicines). The other segment of the research center would be completely involved with understanding the dynamic situation occurring ground level. This segment is hardware intensive and its main task is the preservation of human civilization as pertinent information, a digital library.

There would be a communications center with a bunch of different surveillance options for gathering data from the situation on ground level as well as broadcasting devices for making contact with anyone able to receive transmissions (as well as broadcasting live radio with updates on the Earth's situation since the apocalypse, music, educational broadcasts and all that kinda thing).

Living quarters for the crew, very basic stuff.

A landing bay outfitted with all tools deemed necessary in the event the blimp has to land.

1 small 2 person helicopter designed to dock on the underside of the blimp. This will be used in the event ground contact must be made but landing the blimp would be too dangerous or too inefficient.

The blimp will regularly locate populated areas and air drop supplies. Food, medicine, seeds, and educational resources with survival instructions for rebuilding civilization.

The blimp won't have many armaments. Hard projectiles are not energy efficient so any armament system would rely on gas powered lasers or directed energy weapons designed to disrupt aggressors rather than injure.

If only...

Also copious amounts of extremely potent cannabis would be grown and regularly airdropped.

helicopters are going to have a hell of a time with landing inside a cave.

I'd probably go with the Volvo S60 Polstar.
It's pretty damn safe, so If I crash, I most likely won't die.
It has lots of storage space from what I could see in videos.
It has 508HP, so I could probably escape a group of crazy inbred redneck driving a pickup truck.

I would want a lightweight motorbike, 200cc to 250cc, solid rubber tires, able to drive in extreme weather conditions, with saddle bags and all other storage capabilities. There are a few online, no accouterments, for about $2,000. The bags are about two hundred, a five gallon fuel can is about thirty dollars, and then my ruck sack will definitely be an added perk. Also easily able to add the weaponry that I am planning to buy (bow, quiver, arrows, tomahawaks, short swords) so that, while unable to myself that well when the hillbillies in my area come a'calling I can outrun them (the bike is very capable of off road driving at high speeds) I can definitely come back with a vengeance.

1997 F350 single cab, 8 foot box. Powered by a 7.3 Powerstroke, with a ZF5 speed to an NP205 transfer case. Lifted 6 inches on 37s, Rebco loggers box, custom welded front bumpers, stow away crane in the bed, 12,000 lb winch up front, light bars forward and backward. Bulletproof glass, reinforced body panels, air down feature for the tires that the Hummer H1 has, as well as an on board air compressor. As for engine mods I'd be running a TS 6 position loaded with custom tunes, as well as a snorkel intake, and stacked exhaust for water crossings. Injectors and a bigger turbo will put it at 400 horse to the wheels. Not a rocket ship, but capable and quick. Gun racks in the cab, as well as GPS loaded with local backroads, chainsaws, axes, and fire starting materials as well. Fishing gear behind the seats. Full skid plates under the truck as well to avoid damage on rough terrain.

id find the biggest engined 4x4 work van i could find.

reinforce the walls with steel plates to with stand small arms fire beef up the suspension throw on some off road tires. redo the interior to have bunks on one side use cargo shelving if they have it. hoping 2 people could fit on racks a third on the floor id want the doors to be clear so that i could do quick deploys if necessary or quick pick ups. rope handle from the top like trains have to stabilize people in the back.
the back end would have a ladder and a bike rack off the trailer hitch for traveling more stealthy/ with out consuming fuel. who knows may need to tow and they make nice racks for back there as well. like the idea of a winch that dude with truck suggested. no crane though.

id probably make a hole in the roof so we could return fire easy and with 360 degree veiw, also an escape hatch. ladder up there as well. maybe even cut ports on the side of the body to fire out of,

what i like about this set up is alot of it can be done with scrap and found stuff.

that would have looked kidna cool if they had made the grand prix's roof line up wih the trucks by making it a chop top.

an up-armored Humvee would prob be better, it is less roomy then a MRAP but they don't tip over as easy, also thats a ton of fuel you will need.

kevlar reinforced skateboard deck on destructo trucks, swiss ceramic bearings and blind wheels, with helmet and knee/elbow pads.

this is a decent idea. the only issue is a board grinds to a screeching halt as soon as a little rock jams a wheel. (/asp/ fags know)

I suggest getting a long board w/ the kevlar thing (also less work, less energy expended). there's also off-road wheels you can get for them. and extra bearings. they die eventually.

Chevy or Dodge van, late eighties to early nineties (they're roomier), with bulletproof glass, honeycombed tires, plating on the sides and bottom, plus extra protection around the engine and some steel storm shutters for the windows, doors, and tires, all accessible and used from the interior, and some spotlights on the side mirrors 5-0 style. A couple of solar panels for the roof, a multiple battery type charger that goes for cars, wall outlets, and USB as well as an emergency radio all in one, a HAM radio, a CB radio, my MP3 player/cell phone loaded with my apocalypse mix, my kindle (loaded with BSA handbooks, road atlases, Chilton's Manual for the van, that kind of thing), a portable DVD player with a fat stack of good flicks that can either directly use the solar panel or can be run off the charger, and cords to connect the lot to the radio in the van. Strip most of the interior, throw some hammocks up for sleeping, a lawn chair for sitting in, and a cot for relaxing prone/medical needs, shelving for food storage and other scavenged/scrounged/traded for items deemed necessary. A rain water collector that goes from the roof to a filter in the roof to the collection bucket inside, jerry tanks of gas on the trunk doors (or the doors where the trunk would be), along with a single speed bicycle with an electric motor conversion for sorties. And myself, of course.

most people don't do this, but you can clean and grease bearings to last significantly longer, but you're right about the long board thing, tho you could always put risers and big wheels on a smaller deck, for when you have to carry it around or store it, but a larger deck is definately more stable at higher speed.

the link shows a partly kevlar board ~prob not bulletproof~ but it has straps, which do enhance its defensive capabilities.
