For a mere $100,000 to $600,000, Jim DeLozier of Costa
Mesa, Calif., will build you a truck that can let you hold out in the
wilderness for months, maybe even years.
The 13-ton Survivor Truck
is presently camped in the parking lot of the Las Vegas Convention
Center for the SEMA aftermarket parts trade show. Though it offers full
protection against nuclear, chemical or biological threats, it can do
little to defend against an attack of indigestion after gorging at the
Caesars Palace buffet.
The truck has a chemical filtration system
and will have bulletproof glass. Gas masks, chemical suits and
breathing apparatus are all on board.
The old, converted Chevrolet
C20 truck covered in tan pickup truck bedliner coating can carry up to
two years worth of freeze-dried food rations and has tanks to tote up to
300 gallons of diesel fuel, DeLozier says. Worried about running out of
ammunition as other desperate survivalists attack your truck? Fear not.
There's a crossbow and quiver of arrows.
Plus, it has the one feature that families might be most concerned about as civilization melts around them: a working toilet.
DeLozier thinks that military and police command post applications
might be more popular. He says he's already had inquiries from potential
overseas buyers. It's "probably too expensive for survivalists," he
says. But it makes more sense than those who are stocking up outposts in
the middle of nowhere awaiting Armageddon, since the truck adds
flexibility and can outrun trouble.
If it can't, it comes with full camouflage nets. After all, you can't assault what you can't see.
