Zombie Apocalypse Assault Vehicle and Troop Transport. This full armored zombie busting vehicle features convenient gun ports so no zombie juice touches you during a mass zombie take down. It also has benches in the back so you can take turns resting during long Zombie sieges. The tactical step boards are installed for when you only need swords and axes for drive by mow downs. The bumpers are made of reinforced steel tubing, so no dents from smashing zombie heads! It’s full armor plated and has bullet proof windows just in case you run into other zombie hunting hordes who might try to take this bad boy from you. Like anything, there is a price attached to this fine piece of zombie fighting machinery. Check it out on Ebay, this might be your lucky day!
According to the EBay listing, the van for sale was a 3-door 1995 Ford E-Series with aftermarket additions including gun ports, tactical step boards, Lenco Certified Mil-Spec Armor, interior armor and reinforced bumper steel tubing.
It was previously purchased from Pickens Company in South Carolina, but it’s not clear if that was before or after the additions were made.

That's some crazy shit, I hope no innocent people were hurt or killed. The gunfire reminded me of the movie Heat:
That's what I was thinking, those run around L.A. and hit all the factories on payday so the illegal aliens can quickly cash their pay checks.
