Shopping for an end of world vehicle, but don’t want a big honkin’ V8 that greedily suck down the last of the go-juice you can scrounge? Lusting for a Range Rover Defender, but afraid desperate survivors will steal your ride? Want to drive the the apocalypse with Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” playing loud enough to make your eardrums bleed? Search no more, because this may be the apocalypse-mobile you’ve been looking for.
Built by Canadians, undoubtedly hopped up on poutine and Tim Horton’s donuts, the Aztec features Pontiac’s 3.4 liter V6 for respectable fuel mileage, a custom paint job, more bent steel tubing than a children’s playground and a sound system with dual subwoofers. The interior is done in orange and tiger stripe fabric, but that’s easily corrected with a can of black spray paint. Sadly. despite the trucks “look at me funny and I’ll kick you ass” appearance, it is only FWD. It’s got traction control, so you should be fine if you drive carefully to your meeting with the four horsemen. Best of all? Since it’s an Aztec, it’s absolutely theft proof, even if you leave the keys in it.
