Not a car guy, was wondering where older model Jeep Wranglers stood on the resilience scale.
I think you would want to consider common vehicles that there are multitudes of - Ford F150 pick ups as an example. It should be easy to find spare and used parts for a long time after the collapse.
Same era of production - I had a VW Quantum from the "golden age" just simple enough to run reliably for 200-300k miles and a ecu was a $40 plug and play swap out. A friend with a Buick needed his entire dash swapped out for $3000 while a Porsche owning friend spent $5k and 3 years chasing down what turned out to be a vacuum hose on the manifold - replaced for a few bucks. Not resilient.
Also consider 'greyness' meaning a vehicle that wouldn't stand out or be desirable.
Pickups deserve their own category
I guess eventually there should be land/sea/air, motorized and non-motorized categories. And given the rising utility and falling prices of remotely controlled and autonomous unmanned vehicles, at the meta-level it gets a bit problematic.
Maybe something like Vehicles-Land-Transport-Passenger-Motorized-Automobiles?
Anyway to me pickups aren't automobiles so I'm going to delete them from this page and make a new category for them on the transport page. I'll refer back to this page (which I think was well done). Sundog 00:21, 15 August 2011 (EDT)
