A old fashioned vehicle that uses a mechanical fuel pump and a carbereuator sure.

For computer controlled fuel injected models with electrical fuel pumps, survos and relays more problematic.

As for fly by wire, forget it! They would have to have been hardened from construction, or maybe grounded or put in a shelter to protect them.

Could a civilian aircraft like a Cesna I think so, at least an older model, just forget about radios or any fancy avionics.

Oh, and electric starters as the solenoid would probably be fried. So, I am thinking you would have to pop start the vehicles, which means a standard or manual transmission instead of an automatic.
