We were ready for it. We had been preparing for months. 2012 came along, we saw the signs, and we knew what to do. Me and a couple of buddies of mine started the Apocalypse Club, a friendly, non-profit organization dedicated to the survival of humankind in a post-apocalyptic society. For some reason, considering the importance of our mission, donations were small and few. However, despite this, at the time of the apocalypse we had collected a respectable force of vehicles and weapons. Unfortunately, we were about to find out how inadequate all of our preparations had been.
Nothing could have prepared us for the wreckage that awaited outside of our bunker. It looked as if a thousand tornadoes had gone through. It's amazing our bunker survived.
Among the wreckage there was a boat, a vending machine, and a piano. And yet, oddly, no bodies. Part of our mission is to rescue people.
Our most apocalyptified vehicle is based off a 1984 Peterbilt. You definitely feel safest when you're driving this thing, with reinforced walls and a 50 cal. machine gun mounted on the passenger side. It belonged to one of our members and he kindly allowed it to be zombie-proofed.
We found this mini-loader in a junkyard. We fixed him up in my garage, removed the shovel and fixed some killer awesome spikes there instead. It's tight turnaround is very handy in a pinch.
My favorite vehicle is the monster-convertible. While the fact that it is a convertible has some rather obvious drawbacks, it is also really fun to drive. I don't entirely remember where we got the car from, something about a divorce and how he didn't want the wife to get the car or something like that. Anyway, we jacked it up and added an extra engine to supplement the power from the car, together cranking out about 420 hp. Problem is, we could only find three wheels. so we used an old satellite dish from a local tv broadcaster.
Another of our vehicles was once an ATV, but we had stripped it down and redid it. It handles pretty well, and has plenty of power.
At first, we wondered if there was going to be anything to fight. We found out very soon that there would be plenty of fighting to be done.
Handy stuff for the apocalypse.

In comparison with the model I based it off of.

A bit of the wreckage.
And my favorite part of the entire moc: the pop machine! If you squint, you can see a can of 7up.
I like the individual shots since details get lost in the clutter of the main photos. The 7up & Golden Arches are nice touches. I like the jerry-rigged feel of the vehicles, but there is no way that dish would support that convertible, but a clever idea nonetheless.
