If someone were to make a zombie-apocalypse Fast and The Furious sequel, then this Eclipse should definitely be in it.
This particular Eclipse has come a long way from a front-wheel-drive, sporty compact car that would’ve been some JDM-aficionado’s wet dream back in the early 2000’s. Instead, its owner decided to transform the vehicle into a zombie-fighting machine, complete with a Gatling gun and extra ground clearance to fight the undead. Sure, it isn’t the coolest weapon of choice to be seen in, but it seems capable of doing a good job, by the looks of it.
The Eclipse is currently for sale on Craigslist (where else?) and its owner is willing to let it go for 3000 large ones. That’s cash, by the way, because in a zombie apocalypse there will not be any credit accounts.
It was was built on an 80’s model Nissan 4×4 frame – according to the owner – and has a 305 Chevy V8 under the hood with a wide array of new engine parts. Besides its noticeable 4-inch lift, the car sits on 22-inch rims, wrapped in aggressive 37×13.50×22 tires, and is ready to make a scene everywhere it goes. To make the package even more desirable, its owner says the Mitsubishi includes some neat options, such as a “loud exhaust” and “all guns and props to make it the zombie slayer”. And yes, it’s perfectly street-legal (unlike those pesky road-racers with their tinted windows and Skyline R34s).
So, if you’re looking for a reasonably priced, apocalypse-surviving car, this is it. Mind you, the price probably reflects the fact that the car has some power drainage (and the battery keeps dying) and the two front tires are losing air and need resealing.
