If the terrorist really want to terrorise us Non nuclear EMP would be the way to do it. Easy to construct and very effactive.
A faraday cage is the only known thing that ime aware of that if made right will defeat the EMP wave. things stored inside it will be safe.

Motor mounts are still attached with bolts. The bolt grounds out on the engine ear and the bolt grounds out on the frame. Engines also usually have another ground strap to ensure adequate grounding for the battery to complete the circuit (this is true for cars back into the 30's). Of course with a generator & points system, there is nothing to worry about. And a tube radio is impervious also. If you ever noticed Russian fighters from the 80's had ginormous nose cones for radar - as they used tubes for protection from EMP.
