Those of you who guessed that society would crumble because of an asteroid or zombie apocalypse appear to be so wrong it's laughable. No, instead, it's bank failures, dealership collapses, rampant unemployment, expensive gas and tainted Chinese milk all conspiring to create a Financiapocalypse. But what vehicle will help you survive it? Tricked-out military machine? A beater? A gas-electric hybrid? A big old diesel truck? The answer is, of course, a Ford Model T. The old Tin Lizzie was designed to go one million miles, meaning that if you can find one with less than 500K you're set. The engine runs on gasoline, but it was also designed to run on ethanol, meaning that you can grow your own fuel. It's like the AK-47 of cars in that most of the car's pieces can be replaced by hand-built parts. When the police departments disband because no one can pay a salary, thieves are going to steal all of the good cars. No one is going to steal this old jalopy, especially if painted black and made to look like it can't run. Top that.
