I guess you guys haven't noticed and have failed to prepare...

There is no more tin foil available to civilians -- all you can find is aluminum foil and it doesn't keep the waves out of your head or anything else no matter how many layers you'd use. This is SO under-reported...

Yep, or anything with gas still in the tank. Seriously. If the SHTF people are gonna be killin each other for water, food, ammo, gas, antibiotics, pain meds, liquor and women. Knowing how to ride a horse may also be useful because when he dies you can eat him.

I still stand by my leather Cadillacs and bicycle.

In a societal collapse, I don't even want to be too near the road.

The vehicle would need to NOT have a computer - engine control computer. It would need to be run with the old points and condenser ignition systems. This would go back to around 1970 and earlier - depends on the manufacturer. Most everything was computer controlled by 1974.

This is for EMP - electromagnetic pulse purposes. Remember, EMP's come from a nuclear blast. And they are proximity dependent on their severity. Meaning the closer your are to the blast the more likely it will damage your electronics. Proximity is a factor and size of the blast is a factor. Larger blasts produce larger pulses that are damaging at greater distances. Smaller blasts - less effect ...

And Faraday cages work.
Simple grounding - not so much ... for semiconductors - computer chips.

OH ... and for the older cars - the ignition condensors (they are actually electronic capacitors) would need to be protected from an EMP, also. So having spares stored in a steel box (Faraday cage) would be the thing to do.

Just get a few horses. You don't want to be ambushed in a loud ass car on the road when it'll most likely be only your car around for miles. Horses can go where cars can't and will hear danger when you don't. And I think this was said but you can eat them if needed. Good luck finding fuel after a few years also. I'm going back to basics and saddling up

Here's a couple options. One for single guys an one for family guys. EMP, or lack of fuel will not effect these.
