After my Toyota truck was stolen from my girlfriends apartment complex. For the third time. With my trade tools all three times. Thanks to all the illegles. Thanks D.C. I got it back stripped all three times. After paying the tow fees and storage of course.

After the third time I removed the door handles. Bondoed em up and installed electronic door pops. Installed a hidden battery kill switch. No attempts since. I think when they scope it out now, they see no door handles and become very confused.

Either that or all of Mexico knows and decided I been hit enough.

though as a cache.....on shore
might just work out fine

Depending on the sitx. This thing is basically an elevator, hence its needs power. You stated it protects against elements. Wouldn't a mudslide cover it. Couldn't in the case of tree falling, it might fall on the elevator. Does it have the power to lift the car in it and the tree? Just questioning if it was solar flare and lost all power. While the car might be protected how would you get the elevator to work without power?

what good would this do
if there was no electricity ???

does it come with a hand crank?
or is your car entombed til
power is restored ???

It would take a VERY large generator
to power that lift. Bigger than anything
sold at Home Depot.

hydraulics can be very powerful depending on the cylinder size and depending on what type a generator used like and old school lister jenny or any generator that doesnt use electronics.

so emp can be mititgated to a certain extent.

tree branch can be cut off or moved with enough people or the brute force of the upward lift.

a mud slide depends on how much mud and there agian the brute force of the lift shouldnt be a problem

but your right it still depends on just exactly what circumstance the lift is built for.

boon you seen wood splitters the amount of force from that small engine is enough to make tons of force.

wouldnt need anything excessively large.

just get an old diesel truck.
that can start with a crank handle.
so even a very big EMP would do nothing.
even if it is driving. the old diesel dont need electricity.
a truck can hold a heavy load.
so you armour plate the cab.
and a truck can hold a lot of fuel.
and carry lots of food and ammo.
build a garage with steel plate.
with swing doors.
you can sleep in it.
dont for get a dog.
and holes to shoot out of.
500,000. will do it easy.
and dont have so many windows.
if they keep shooting.
it will not last.
sounds like mad max!

only 1500 to be made tho and at a price of $310,000

makes me wanna cry

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.

Yeah but would your nice living situation look as B.A. as this does?

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.

Well how about a Coffman engine starters or compressed air starters. One of those on the right engine and it would be EMP proof.
