GM's asian partner Suzuki, has come up with a vehicle for the post nuclear era. See full story at: Engadget
Suzuki's PIXY + SSC concept thrives in post-nuclear wastelands
Let's face it, we've only got what, maybe three or four hundred years left to enjoy the great outdoors before pollution levels eventually prohibit even stepping foot outside without our personal breathing apparatus. Well Suzuki thinks that it will be in this bleak and toxin-filled future that motorized single-passenger vehicles like the Segway will finally thrive, and is preparing to capture a piece of this potentially lucrative market with a concept transportation system known as PIXY + SSC. Scheduled to be unveiled at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, this dynamic duo consists of a rolling transporter (SSC, or Suzuki Shared Coach) which can carry up to two PIXY runabouts -- fully-enclosed, three wheeled pods that will let you comfortably navigate a toxic or post-nuclear world. Suzuki plans to make these available "well before it becomes impossible to walk to our dealerships."There is no way to happiness....happiness is the way.:yipi:

Hmm, is that 3-wheel drive? Wonder if you could put some P265 mudders on one of them.

Scary thought that there would even be plans for such. Of course I've always thought that the space program is really preparation for survival in hostile atmospheres whether here or on some distant planet.
