Over Labor Day weekend, downtown Atlanta was packed with visitors for the 30th annual Dragon Con pop culture convention. Attracting over 70,000 attendees this year–and many locals interested in seeing the wide array of costumes–the 2016 convention packed the streets with colorful characters.

One of the biggest highlights of the convention every year is the gigantic parade through the streets of downtown Atlanta, winding down through Peachtree Street. While the costumes of all shapes and sizes on display were undeniably impressive, auto enthusiasts got a treat with a handful of customized vehicles paying homage to beloved movies and TV shows.

See how many of these iconic cars you can recognize!

One of the highlights was a customized 2005 Dodge Power Wagon modified with a long list of emergency items, including an air compressor, power supply, spare fuel, gas masks, kayak, medical kits, shelter, chain saw, firearms, and much more. And what is all this for? The zombie apocalypse, of course! The truck was created by local CERT member and volunteer policeman Robert Bean.
