For the not to wealthy, a 4x4 diesel can be converted quite easily to run on bio fuel. Do you think that people will be looting the deep fat fryers of restaurants? Highly unlikely…well, until now that I’ve said it. I'm sure others have thought of it as well.
Pre 1972 vehicles have been shown to survive an EMP due to the lack of computerized components. Also, you must realize that once someone sees you driving when no one else is will make you a target.
Just remember that commonality is what you are looking for. If you have something exotic, it’ll be a real bitch to repair.
Many common parts. You have to be able to keep running with what ya have.
[The] fully armored Rolls-Royce Phantom [is] able to withstand everything from a direct assault with an AK-47 to a poison gas attack.Engineered to the highest international protection rating, the armored Phantom is virtually indistinguishable from the standard version to lure attackers into a false sense of security.
The car features high-tech fiber composites and special steel plating to provide protection for the bodywork, with bulletproof glass for all windows and its own oxygen supply in the trunk in case of a gas attack. The ultra-luxe car's aluminum spaceframe chassis and suspension have been strengthened and the 453 hp powertrain remains unchanged, while nothing has been sacrificed in the way of luxury, refinement and comfort.
It has a 6.75 L, 48-valve, V12 engine that produces 453 hp (338 kW) and 531 ft·lbf (720 N·m) of torque...the Phantom can accelerate to 100 km/h (60 mph) in 5.7 s. It has a six-speed automatic transmission and double wishbone suspension.

refineries are no longer operational and pumping fuel.
You would be running a modified diesel to run on anything right,.
But where will you get that fuel,...once the options run out,...
