The official Guide to Zombie Survival infographic was released yesterday with a complete analysis of the commonly encountered types of zombies, what happens after you’re bitten and a list of mandatory supplies for “maximum chance of survival.” These include water, non-perishable victuals, medicine/first aid supplies, radio and clothing. There’s an essential part of the guide missing and it doesn’t answer the question of transportation. Thus, the Mojo Motors Blog will finish where the infographic left off by offering up the best non-traditional vehicles to use during zombie attacks.
You might be thinking a Toyota FJ Cruiser, Jeep Wrangler (hard top) or Hummer would make for the best vehicles when facing a zombie attack but you’re wrong. Dead wrong. Sure, their four wheel drive and skid plates are superior for all-terrain navigation, however, when the zombie attacks start happening, everyone will be scrambling to find these vehicles. A survivor needs to think outside the Hard Top Jeep Wrangler or FJ Cruiser. That’s why Mojo Motors has done the legwork for you, developing a comprehensive list of unusual vehicles and strategies that could potentially save your life during the zombie attack that will probably never happen.

White was named the most popular car color in America beating out long-time favorite silver which has been the country’s most popular car color for the past ten years. It’s about time some fresh meat takes the crown from silver, but then again, the most exciting thing about white is when it makes an appearance on wheels. Refer to this Mustang Saleen and this Subaru WRX STi. White may be the most popular car color in America, but based on 117 responses from our Facebook fans, both red and black beat out America’s favorite by quite a majority. Even further down the list is silver, which was beaten out by the color blue in the fourth spot and green in the fifth-place spot.

If you typically lump gamers into one large category of dudes with too much time on their hands who like things with lots of buttons you should first watch yourself and second, consider this recent survey. Game publisher RockYou found there are four distinct types of gamers and they like more than lots of buttons to push. There’s the affluent gamer: someone who games hard, spending hours in front of a screen while eating massive amounts of Cheetos. There’s the competitive gamer: someone who spends hours in front of a screen, much like an affluent gamer, but typically games to beat up on their friends and boast about their skillz. It should be noted that the competitive gamer also consumes large amounts of cheesy snack foods – or anything involving cheese for that matter. The third type of gamer is the impassioned supporter of a select few online games that are free to play. Unfortunately, their snacking habits are a bit harder to identify. Lastly, there’s the newbie or n00b who can typically found getting pwned.
Let’s break this down. The affluent gamer, whilst gaming a considerable amount, is career-focused and largely comprised of men. They may or may not drink gamer-fuel in the form of Mountain Dew, coffee or Powerthirst. The competitive gamer are mostly women, believe it or not, so are the n00bs and the passionate supporters. At first this may seem a bit off, but if you take the time to look at Facebook updates of your friends, these stats don’t seem totally wrong. How many dudes do you know who play FarmVille or The Sims? With the information and data supplied from from RockYou, we’ve compiled a list of the best used cars for each gamer type. Make the jump to see the breakdown.
There’s a man who is attempting to build a Ford GT90. What’s the GT90 you ask? Well, the Ford GT90 was a concept that made its premier at the Detroit Auto Show in 1995 and dubbed “the world’s mightiest supercar.” It was slated to have a 720 horsepower quad-turbocharged V12 mid-engine capable of reaching 235 MPH. Yep, a dude is trying to build one of these. Read on to learn more about this man and how he is going to build the world’s mightiest supercar in his own garage.
Here’s a quick and unsophisticated history lesson. Films become popular in the early 1900′s, right around the same time as automobiles. The first mainstream feature film in America was released in 1912. The first automobile, the Ford Model T, was released in 1908. Since then, nearly one bazillion films have been produced and probably just as many cars too. Over one hundred years later, cars have become integral parts, even characters, in some of the greatest movies.
The following gallery features some of the most popular movie cars based on responses from our Facebook fans. This is the ultimate gallery of movie cars, but not the ultimate ultimate gallery of movie cars. This way, nobody can call out the Mojo Motors Blog for neglecting to include a totally sweet movie car, but go ahead, flame away in the comments. If you’re looking for the ultimate ultimate gallery of movie cars goes to the Internet Movie Car Database. Until then, check out these 28 rides from Hollywood after making the jump.
