Most research shows EMP effecting vehicles is more science fiction than reality. N1 solar EMP can effect other electronics which are connected to their grid. If your vehicle is facing the NEMP (nuclear) your car not starting may not be your biggest problem. The problem, if we survive the detonation, fall out and such, is the fuel systems are connected to the grid. THE EMP would surely destroy many of the operating systems within these fuel systems. So back to your question thinking a K5, if you're vehicle is only getting 8-12 MPG ( I owned 1) then it's probably not EMP prof, something with good gas mileage, would be the best EMP vehicle. Check the article attached. http://www.futurescience.com/emp/vehicles.htmlWhat is the best emp proff vehicle. I am looking fora SUV probably a k5 or something like it any ideas or recommendations
Like Old Anorak, we have horses but I travel away from home 4-5 days a week and my "bug out" plan is to get back home to the ranch. So...that being said; I was a mechanic for 15+ years so I have a bit of knowledge about vehicles. Considering everything you hear about the effects of an EMP on vehicles, the general thought is that electronic ignition systems will go kaputttt. I am also told that the vast majority of researchers believe these same vehicles that are running at the time of an EMP will stall and restart and that those vehicles not running won't be harmed at all. Personally.....I'm not sure I trust any of that! So...the following is my list of must-haves in a bug out or get-home vehicle:What is the best emp proff vehicle.

Damn man that's some HP in a tiny SUV. How did the motor fit, most of been some serious mods. Leave it to you hillbilly's to cram a 350 in a samurai . WTH who does that ? LOLI used to have a little samurai... the thing was unstoppable. We put a 350 Chevy in it because it ate clutches with the large tires on it. ....heh , it seemed like a good idea at the time. But overcompensation for a lack of power was an understatement. When you take the worlds shortest wheelbase and add 500 HP , somebody is about to die. The thing would stand verticle wheelies and we couldn't even get a quarter mile time because nobody had the nads to stay on the gas more than about 50 yds. It was the worst case of overkill in history. It would swap ends before you even thought about correcting it. I sold it 10 years ago and there's a guy driving it around now....still with my paint on it.( hasn't been rolled over yet.) But there was nowhere it wouldn't go. Awesome machine.
