Thursday Twister: Best Car For Fleeing After Nov 8th

No matter which way you swing politically (or otherwise) there is a good chance that you are going to be upset with the direction of the USA on November 5th 9th.  Nothing short of convincing Ohio, Michigan and Florida to cast their electoral college votes for Alfred E Newman (and enforced those odd rules around someone not reaching the 270 electoral college votes), will stop most of the population from packing up their stuff on the 9th of November and heading for greener pastures.  SO, my question to you for today's Thursday Twister is: what is the best car for bugging out before the crooked, crotch grabbing, married to a pedophile, married 47 times, dirtbag gets swore in on a Bible that will probably burst into flames when his/her hands touch it?


Me personally?  I am heading north to the land of Canada, where people are friendly, land is cheap, and the only thing you have to worry about is snow, and bears (and moose in heat).  To get there, I'm going to fire up both diesel engines in this 1974 Mercedes-Benz Unimog snow thrower here on eBay and just start driving.  Hit a patch of snow? No problem.  Keep driving.  Hit traffic? No problem, just watch you ram all those idiots in Teslas who didn't plan for reduced electric range in cold conditions. Zombie apocalypse? No problem, this thing will make zombies into zombie mulch quicker than you can say "True patriot love in all thy sons command..."



What will you be driving, and where will you go on Nov 9th, 2016?

  1. Am I confused on the date of the election? Have we moved up the timing? Is this part of the whole 'rigging' thing?

    2. Early voting started here on Monday... wife and I voted on Tuesday. Then Wednesday they decide they're taking one of the measures we voted "for" off of the ballot... and we're not auth'd to re-cast our votes. So, early vote with caution, I guess, is the main bullet point of this presentation.

  3. Um, I wonder about your belief that land is cheap up here in the Great White North. I can certainly tell you that houses are expensive, especially relative to many parts of the US of A. So, check your math, but all y'all DT-ers are still welcome up here if you feel like you gotta get out of Dodge. The more gearheads the better!

    1. Kind of reminds me of watching house hunters or whatever on TV... it's always a young Canadian couple and the opening monologue usually goes something like this:
      "Jim is an unemployed ditch digger, and Jennifer is a part time day care substitute teacher... they have 3 kids and 2 dogs and want a bigger house... their budget is $1.2 million." And that $1.2 mil gets them an incredibly average house in some bland suburb of Toronto.

      I think I heard that unlike here in the US, where real estate peaked in 2008 and then tanked, the Canadian housing market has continued to climb at the same rate it was pre-2008.

    2. Bobinott -- I was thinking of land WAAYYYY far north. So far north that I can't get cell phone reception. Ellesmere Island looks nice.

  4. Either way, I don't think we're going to be safer if "someone" decides that they wants free clean water....

  7. Unlike most rear engine vehicles I bet this thing really ploughs.

    Wait it has two engines, speaking of which look what else the guy is selling http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nasu-NA140BT-All-Terrain-Tracked-Amphibious-Personnel-Carrier-40mph-17-passenger/131976217726?_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109&_trkparms=aid%3D444000%26algo%3DSOI.DEFAULT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D39850%26meid%3Dd27027f7de86463aa6c2a579c170facd%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D3%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D131981310957

  10. Not really anything for sale, but when I get there I want to be this guy. Here is his "dually" td-18 cat with a GMC V12 used for hauling stuff around the frozen north.

    If he who dies with the most toys wins, this guy is definitely leading plus being generally cool as snot in Manitoba for better or for worse.
