Everything I'm coming up with on Google is either super-technical or super-vague. I remember a little from War of the Worlds, but I'm not watching that thing again for research.
The question I'm having is how would the pulse affect vehicles? I believe newer cars (the pulse happens in 2009) would be screwed because they're so computer-filled. How about something older?
Would a 1986 GMC truck run afterwards if it had been turned off at the time? If not, would it be possible to just change out a part from a local source, or would they all be fried too?
What about a 1967 Chevy Impala that had been lovingly packed away? I figure the battery's been taken out, the gas tank drained, is there anything else that should be done to store a classic car long-term? Would it run, post-pulse?
Thanks in advance,
(edit: I think I have my answer. Thanks for all your input.)
