Best cars for surviving the zombie apocalypse

David Mizejewski of the National Wildlife Federation has good news—a zombie apocalypse is next to impossible. According to his article "Zombies vs. animals? The living dead wouldn't stand a chance," the undead would be so busy getting mauled by grizzly bears that they would have few opportunities to consume any live humans.

Still, just because something defies basic science is no reason to stop planning for it. If you're the kind of person who worries about being eaten alive by ghouls, then chances are you've already packed your bug-out bag, hoarded canned goods and amassed an impressive stockpile of weapons. But do you have the right car?

If you need your ride to ride out catastrophe, it would need to fulfill certain criteria. Jeff Allen of CNBC's "The Car Chasers" was only too happy to give his opinion of which ones qualify, and Karl Brauer, senior analyst at Kelley Blue Book , also offered his insights.

Read ahead and see which cars you'll want when the dead walk the earth.
