This is my second Cars & Coffee article, which are my favorite articles to write. I went to last months Cars & Coffee event with a couple of my friends: Dawson, Robert, Dylan, Brett, Alyssa, and Evan. We all met up at the Alabama Point pass under the bridge and drove along the beach to Gander Outdoors of Pensacola to the event, which takes place every fourth Saturday of the month at 8 am-10 am.

Surviving the zombie apocalypse is a tough task, but every cloud has a silver lining, In this case, it happens to be the benefit used car companies received ever since that one moron went and got the whole world sick. So here are some ways that the zombie apocalypse changed the used car game.
First, there has been a whole crap ton of new aftermarket features. You’re walking through the lot looking at prices, and you look up and see a truck outfitted with an (unloaded) minigun, reinforced grill, puncture proof tires, and blood-splatter paint job. Not many of us would think anything other than “yep, that’s a zombie killing car.” Although not as many of us would actually walk over to it or even consider buying it. Most people would simply walk away with their hands in their pockets whistling a merry tune. That’s just fine until a half-dead-hipster is gnawing on your entrails. But noooooooooooooo, you just had to save a couple hundred on that blue Prius. Have fun mowing down a horde in that arts and crafts project gone wrong.
Second, we get lower prices. Since most of the original owners don’t need them anymore, the dealers will have lot of extra automobiles in stock, which is great news for you! All you need to do is wipe the blood off the sides. and just may replace the seats, you know, scratches and organs and all.
Last, the salesmen are easier to deal with. Imagine you are in the lot looking for the perfect vehicle for escaping town, and then some pesky salesman rushes up to you and reminds you that sweet 2014 Corvette is $100,000. In other words, it’s out of your price range. That won’t happen after the zombies take over, since used car salesmen will be struggling find food, making them MUCH easier to deal with. Simply take what you want and go.
So that’s how the zombie apocalypse helped change the used car game: firstly, making more aftermarket features available to us all; secondly, lowering the prices due to a life-threatening pandemic; lastly, by making salesmen easier to deal with on account of the justice system.
