Drivable ModelsEdit

The Hillscrambler SUVEdit


Catalog Description: An Oldie, but a goodie! Although it may not accelerate with the best of them, this crawls up hills with a dogged determination! It's a little unwieldy, but it gets the job done! (Based on Toyota J60 Land Cruiser)

Bright Falls Light & Power Pickup Edit


Catalog Description: Great general-purpose vehicles, these pickups are part of a recently released fleet from the disused Bright Falls Power Plant, north of town. They're fast enough, with good steering and durability. (Based on 1981 Dodge Ram)

Military-Style Off-roaderEdit


Catalog Description: Do you crave a more boxy ride, with tighter cornering and a rapid skid you can easily drive out of? Then test-drive this classic off-roader today. Arguably the best! (based on Land Rover 88" Series III)

The Jupiter SummitEdit


Catalog Description: A modern SUV in every sense of the word. Featuring, as all our vehicles do, high-beam lights that dazzle and then cut through dark protection, and a hood to withstand at least six human-sized bodies! (Based on 1995 Ford Explorer or 1997 Mercury Mountaineer)

Tan SedanEdit


Catalog Description: A classic vehicle. This 1979 model is available in one color, and features decent acceleration, and some wild, fishtail-prone turns. If you want to hit taken using rather then skill, try this out! (Based on 1972 Chevrolet Impala, but it's a semi-intentional homage Sam Raimi's 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88)

Walter's PickupEdit

Catalog Description: One careful owner. Full service records. Used primarily to drive to and from the Anderson farm. Local commuter! Very similar to the Bright Falls Light & Power pickup, but with a few more dents. (Based on Ford F-100)

It slams through strange, grey woodsman with ease! Impressive power! Boasting the 6.4l powerstroke turbo diesel V8 this thing tears through anything in its way!
