Field Guide to Wasteland Vehicles: Doubletap

As you know we don’t just squee over other folks’ post-apoc vehicles here at Will It Wasteland: we also build our own. The current WiW fleet is up to six vehicles (two of which have been featured already: Trundle and DemonKitty). The most active of the bunch is a 1994 Subaru Legacy wagon named Doubletap.
Like Trundle, Doubletap was pulled out of an extended slumber, given a bit of restorative treatment and then fired right up. The transformation was even more extreme in this case, as less than a month after being resurrected, Doubletap was driven from Detroit to Wasteland Weekend and back. The stubborn Subaru put up with all the punishment that was thrown at it and made it home, and it’s now the caravan leader for Detroit’s Lost Toys group.
The 2.2 liter four-cylinder engine, five-speed manual transmission and all wheel drive were left stock. A budget suspension lift was accomplished by installing springs and struts from a Legacy Outback, and taller tires from a Forester give Doubletap enough ground clearance to tackle mild off-road obstacles.
Aggressive junkyard-parts shopping has added a sturdier front end, with a Volvo 240 bumper and Land Rover Discovery brush bar. The side-mounted spare is hanging on a Jeep Liberty spare tire carrier, and the front turn signals were replaced with jelly jars after the originals fell off on a rough road. Midwestern rust led to some aggressive trimming of the fenders, which accommodated the larger tires handily.  The car named itself when, while being cleaned out, two live bullets were found (a 9mm hollowpoint and a .45ACP) tangled in the mess under the seats. 
Doubletap’s first roof rack was cobbled together from a bunk bed, a futon and ski racks. After that proved cumbersome and fragile off-road, a stronger unit was made from a heavy-duty ladder rack from a Ford F350 that was narrowed, shortened and bolted to the roof.  It’s got racks to carry ditch-crossing ramps, as well as hangers for tent and hammock supports and Camel Trophy Land Rover-inspired brush protection for the windshield.
Interior upgrades include a CB radio and sundial compass on the dash and a new cargo floor that can be formed into a bed for in-car camping.
