Whether the much-hyped date of Dec. 21, 2012, in any way resembles the end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it movie "2012" remains to be seen — but only 10 days now remain to party like it's 1999. A year ago, in preparation for what, if any, doomsday scenario accompanies the Mayan calendar's ominous end, we provided a list of our favorite vehicles to carry us into oblivion. Comprising disparate selections from the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle to the 2012 Ram 3500 Longhorn, there's something for every dystopian driver. So take heed because, hey, maybe you'll end up in Mad Max's super-cool 1973 Ford Falcon — but that could mean carpooling with Mel Gibson.
