CDC #434 – Pimp My Post Apocalyptic Ride!

Your challenge this week is to create an original post apocalyptic vehicle that would feel right at home battling on the Fury Road.

You can build it from scratch if you wish or you may choose an item from “Companions: Vehicles” and deck it out Mad Max style

The winner this week will receive my design for the driver of the winning vehicle.

Please follow the instructions below regarding the naming of entries.

The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. Please keep all submissions PG13: full or partial nudity is prohibited. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShack, Deviant Art or whatever);Do not use Photobucket.

  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).

This contest will close at 9am Eastern on Sunday, October 13th.

    This contest is sure looking lonely.

    I did a truck for a previous challenge, so I decided to do this one differently

    My post apocalyptic truck….

    “TacV” was slapped together quickly by five car mechanics who were terrified of not getting home from their business trip. The sides were made from semitrailer sides backed with angle-iron trusses for ram prows. Gunports covered with notched sheet steel coated with melted tire scrap line each side. The top is recessed so that no one sees people emerging from the three hatches. Rainwater collects into tanks for coolant. Two solar panels do charge the batteries. A Prius engine powers one end, and a Jeep engine powers the middle (one engine in neutral at a time.) Altered Ford Explorer transmissions bring the power down to the wheels, which have more tire scraps and fire extinguisher foam inside the tires. Either end can steer, and a hydraulic jack mounted inside can be used to untwist wheels after taking damage. Top view above side view.

    The dreaded Post-Apocalyptic Vehicle: The Spiker. Rather than adding weaponry and decorations to an existing car, the creator of this car destroyed several cars, used a few basic parts, and then made the rest from scrap metal and other parts found in a junkyard.

  5. G. W. says:

    The guns are hooked up to a mechanism that allows them to be fired from the inside, the chains are simply there for additional stability.
