Car Nut is a basic supportive perk that allows characters to start with a good mechanical stat for repairing vehicles, among other things. The addition of starting with a better vehicle can be helpful in that the vehicle may be faster, more fuel efficient, or more durable than the standard Old Car.


Upgrades for Car Nut can be purchased from Perks of the Mind in exchange for Zombo Points.
