Lord Humongous' armored killer buggy is a solid contender for the title of "Most Jalopnik Vehicle Ever Made." It's built the exact way it should've been: In an all-out garage thrash. More evil inside.
Based on an '84 Ford F-150, this blood-and-guts custom faithfully recreates everyone's favorite post-apocalyptic survival vehicle down to the tiny bits. The added third axle isn't driven - and the nitrous isn't hooked up to anything - but we're completely sold on this monster. For what this machine lacks in mechanical ability it makes up for in spades with a working loudspeaker and realistic prisoners.
Stashed in the corner of this year's Autorama 2009, it's mightyness loomed over every custom built so dearly. The sheetmetal body work on the death chariot looks like it's been sectioned with a hacksaw and buzzed together with an arc welder; we wouldn't want it any other way. Where are you going to find a nice, powerful Miller TIG in the middle of the wasteland? Nowhere.
When we questioned the positionable Lord Humongous cardboard collector cutout, he only replied,
Just walk away. I will give you safe passage in the Wasteland. Just walk away and there will be an end to the horror. I await your answer. You have one full day to decide.
Wait, is he talking about Detroit?
