"If and when the apocalypse ever comes, it won’t be the meek who inherit the Earth. It will be whoever can afford one of these bullet-proof beasts: Introducing the Ghurka RPV Civilian Edition, a street-legal, 13,500-pound off-road vehicle designed to roll through war zones like a rhinoceros in a petting zoo. Built by Terradyne, a Canadian manufacturer of armored personnel carriers and light tactical vehicles, the Ghurka RPV can ram through chained gates and drive in water up to 30-inches deep. It can also withstand 7mm armor-piercing rounds. And it’s packing heat: the 6.7 liter V8 turbodiesel delivers 300hp and 660 Ib.-ft. of torque, as well as a top speed of 70mph. The only catch? It costs $278,000. But, hey, you can’t put a price on indestructibility."/

Without a turret and some awesome firepower it's just another rolling target. No thanks to the price tag.
But is it hardened to withstand an EMP pulse?
I can't put a price on indestructibility, but apparently my wife can! :-(
A bucks worth of gas, 50 cents worth of motor oil, an empty wine bottle, and a rag, a little courage, and it's gone. Armor. Blind, Halt, and Destroy.
I sure you can build something on your own for a lot less that may not look as good but still can ram through chained gates and drive in water up to 30-inches deep withstand incoming and packs heat, might not be street legal today but when SHTF time comes, anything and everything will be legal, but that still don't mean I wouldn't want one of these if I could afford it, don't ya know!
If I actually had $278000, I think I'd be better off buying land and setting up a self sustaining homestead FAAAARRR away from the city.
Meantime, I wish you well with your Saturday Yard Sale. I wish I could be there, even if was to shake Mike's hand one more time.
Maybe you could post the leftovers on Monday and let people bid/buy them through PayPuke.
You know, I'm always going to bet on those who know how to endure without depending for their survival on the products of a civilization that will no longer exist in any recognizable form, but that's just me.
Not saying it's not a cool vehicle to have right up until things actually get bad.
$278k would buy me a nice place, with money left over for several old Toyota 4WDs.
Gucci-fied junk, for wantabees. B-4
Weighs a thousand pounds more than an M113, all that weight on 4 tires. Off road my ass. Built for people with more dollars than sense.
