if you can afford on of these it has multiple uses other than making sure you wont be walking.

i thought that these are a 100 on a scale of 1 to 10 cool factor.

storms,tornados,hurricanses pick your disaster.

Dope invention like Swat Kats. I'd remove the spark plugs to keep it on the cheap

When I lived in newfoundland, there were a lot of car thieves. My grandfather would just mess around with the wiring and frame, and move the starter to a whole new spot under the seat. There were attempts, but nobody ever figured how to start any of his motorized vehicles.

If you can't start it, you can't steal it.

I like the idea and all, but honestly, that is not going to fit my SHTF get away vehicle. To be honest, that lift wont hold a humvee, let alone a Knight XV...

You can also rig your ride to be un-stealable.

On trucks I own I rig a hidden switch for battery power(starter), a hidden switch for the fuel pump, and a starter switch. swithces can be hidden inside a/c vents, under seats, under dash.

On top of all the switches it is still required to have a key to turn to the on position.

Additionally I am not crazy, Ive just had a lot of trucks stolen in the past.

The second elevator maybe wide enough, how ever the first one is no dice.

I love the idea none the less, and even though I knew there was a car coming up, still expected to see a plane rising like on a carrier. lol

You have a badass hideaway like that and you stick a hatchback in there?

That Lamborgini vid was more like it. Personally; I'd stick one of these in there.

1) Pull the coil wire when you are not using the car.

2) Tie half a body hanging out the trunk or tailgate.

3) Get a humongaloid dog to ride around in the back seat.

4) Booby trap the driver's door with a couple of grenades.

Should I go on.

Good moves.

Another good one is wiring up your car to the main's electric supply. Anyone trying to steal it get's a zap!

it gets 7mpg and im sure in a shtf scenario gas will be very easy to get.

When you run out of gas I will just shoot you and take your stuff. For $310k I could setup a pretty nice living situation that fully sustainable and very far from others who would come wandering.

nice to know who your friends are aint it.

shoot me how rude.

i was wrong about the price its $500,,000 plus depending on the options.

the only flaw the knight xv has is it runs on gas not sure if they offer the diesel option but from my understanding most diesel engines these days get pretty good gas mileage.

that said if i can afford to buy 1 or 2 knight xv dont you think i would be able to afford a couple of thousand of gallons of fuel?

shoot me so rude

One thing I do know, if it has got an engine compartment something else can fit in there.
I had a buddy in high school who had a pinto with a 302.
And I got a buddy who still has a monster miata, 302 as well.
Yep, if you got the cash, you can get it in diesel.
And broke folks don't buy a Knight.
Notice the soundtrack in the knight demo, we know who they are marketing these towards.

The only folks who can "afford" to drive them.
Me myself, I'm just gonna go all BA Barrackus and go to the local school yard and get a bus!!

Thanks to all for tips on how to steal cars if TSHTF!!
the Knight is nice but honestly it's a bit pimp for post apocalypse even though I am sure it has HP and all the other powerful needs (read I don't want a list of features). Needs to be simple as possible for easy maintenance.

If you're relying on a ride or anything else that requires any form of electrical energy during your "escape from TSHTF" scenario, you've got a gaping hole in your plan.

ANY plan to escape the SHTF scenario should assume that no electronic devices of any kind would be in working order, including any sort of vehicle relying on an electrical starter.

Thats exactly what you need! A 1 minute loading time on your escape vehicle.

You can install a battery kill switch on any vehicle, the cheaper ones come with a plastic "key" and are pretty easy to put in.

i appreciate all the comments so far and they have been some great tips

but

doesnt address someone stealing your tires,your battery,stealing fuel from it not to mention a tree falling on it or anything else that can destroy your auto.

sure you can get a gas cap lock and wheel locks to stop most of that but you cant stop mother nature.

Just make sure it's EMP-hardened or you won't be going anywhere after a nuke or EMP strike.


And be sure to convert it to run on liquified neighbors (bio-diesel) so that you'll have a constant supply of fuel after the SHF.
