A Highwayman is a car manufactured by the Chryslus Motors.

Background

The car has a fully analog system with no electronics, over 800 horsepower, and reaches 60 mph in under a second.[1] It was known for great performance and reliability, and has a spacious trunk.[Pub 1] The vehicle's promotional slogan was "Nothing can stop a Highwayman."[2]

The flow of power is regulated by a mandatory fuel cell controller,[3] which is also the one part that tends to break down the most, usually burning out due to rapid acceleration.[4][5] A fuel cell regulator was an optional upgrade that some drivers installed to improve the mileage while others didn't concern themselves with energy usage.[6][7]

    Skeeter: "{120}{}{Funny you should ask that. Ya see, cars use replaceable fuel cells, or batteries, for fuel. What usually broke down was the Fuel Cell Controller. Most amateur mechanics jist assume that it’s the battery itself. But you know what ass-uming things does, dontcha?}"

    Smitty: "{450}{}{Well now, that's a fuel cell regulator. That'll give you better mileage per energy cell. I could put that in for you, if you had say $750 for my trouble.}"

    One of the most useful items that you'll find is this shining example of American iron. The Chrysalis Motors Highwayman was once renowned for its high performance and durability. "Nothing can stop a Highwayman" was a phrase familiar to most drivers. The motto still holds true today. If you repair the car with a part that you'll find in Gecko, you can fuel it with standard energy cells and use it to move quickly across the world map, well equipped to outrun most enemies that you'll find.
    Towns in the post-apocalyptic world don't allow motor vehicles on their streets, citing something about aged fuel cells exploding. However, parking your Highwayman on the outskirts of town gives you access to a quick getaway as well as a secure storage spot for your goodies within the car's spacious trunk."
