      anybody here ever experienced the supernatural in their cars? did anybody get something extra with their project or restored car?
      a friend of mine told me last night about an old toyota corona they bought back in the 90's. the car was an early 80's model. it was said that a friend of the previous owner figured in an accident, and died in the backseat on the way to the hospital. so what they did was they had the car blessed.
      however, weird stuff started to occur. like the lights flashing once or twice at night... with a dead battery. also, my friend swore that he once heard some sort of "wheezing" sound from the car, like someone who has trouble breathing.
      so anybody here experienced similar tales?

      Well not a haunted car story but 3 of my friends were once driving in a mildly foggy night when they ALL saw some guy jogging on the side of the road. One of them said, "hey mike, watch out for that guy!" and mike said, "yeah I see him." and once they got close to him, he was no where to be found. From then on they all called him the ghost jogger. Also this one time when some of my friends were all in one car coming home from school. There was this bridge that they pass under daily and some kid comitted suicide there a year prior. It was in the local news paper and everything. Anyways, as they were driving under it, one of my friend just got a chill....mind you this was freaking summer in 90 degree weather...and he said, damn I just got a chill, lol...and one of my other friend was like damn me too! Then the other 2 in the back said that they felt it too! Crazy stuff!

      A kid i was friends with in highschool's mom had a 84 caravan. One day while we were all at the mall, we started walking away from the car when it turned itself on, flashed the high beams, honked the horn and then turned off again. We decided it be best to call his dad and 'pretend' the car didn't work and walk home.

      sounds like an episode out of scooby doo.

      I've got a brand new one that's just a little weird, not too exciting.
      A few months ago, I was driving along in my Olds and I saw something out of the corner of my eye. It looked like something a little bigger than a ping-pong ball, grayish in color, rolling or running across the front passenger floormat. It went from under the seat to up under the dash. By the time I glanced over to focus on it, it was gone. My first thought was that it was a mouse. I pulled into a parking lot, opened all the doors, pounded on the seat cushions, and...nothing. I keep my car interior clean, so there is no trash rolling around on the floor, just a pair of gloves and an umbrella. The only thing I found was a little yellowed part-number tag that looked like it had come off the radio or something and fallen out from under the dash. I figured I must have seen that get caught in the airflow from the heater and flutter across the floor, but what I saw really didn't look like that.
      So, just a couple weeks ago, I had forgotten all about that. I was driving along and braked hard, and again I just barely saw something roll from under the passenger's seat to up under the dash. This time it looked bigger, like a gray baseball. And once again, when I looked over to see what it was, it was gone. Again I pulled over and looked around, stuck my head under the dash and under the seat, and found nothing.
      Not very ghostly-sounding, I know, but I just can't figure out what this object could be and why I can't find it on the floor of the car. And the original owner of the car was an old man who is now dead, so who knows...

      one local talk radio host was saying one night he got pulled over by a police officer for having his kids not in a child saftey seat. the radio guy told the cop i dont have kids and the cop looked in the backseat and found it empty. the cop then apologized and they were on their way. when he got home they looked and noticed little handprints all over the inside of the back window

      I have one for you. I swear my delivery van is haunted. The guy that use to do my route always drove the same van I now drive #13. This guy loved his job and worked very hard because he was way in debt child support, car payment, mortage. He worked like 6 or 7 days a week. Because of his hard work and lack of proper diet (Jack in the Box), smoking, and drinking he died of a heart attack at age 52. So right after his death I was chosen to start doing the route he did. So one night a few weeks after his death I go into one of my stops on my route. I am only in there about 1 or 2 minutes. When I get back to the van open the door and start to sit in the drivers seat I feel spider webs all over my face and arms. I'm thinking there is no way a spider can lay out that many spider webs in 2 minutes. Then another time while I was driving I felt someone touch my right elbow I almost drove off the road. The last thing that happened was one night I was almost done with my route I was at the very last stop. I get out of the van go in and for a few minutes and come back out and there is a small cut out picture from a prOn mag sitting right in the middle of the drivers seat. I got in and out of the van many times and did not see it before. The doors are all locked and all of the windows are closed. I think it is the guy who use to drive the van doing it he was always known as being the prankster of the company. I told some of my coworkers about it and they are all scared to drive it. I am not scared at all it still runs pretty good and has only let me down once even though is has 434,000 miles on it.
      Well thats my story.

      I was working on my 63 hearse, (i know cliche huh?) I was sitting backward in the seat with my head by the pedals messing with the fuses. I was pulling them with some metal plyers, and accidently arked one of them. I decided to pull the battery cable like your supposed to in the beggining.
      I went back under the dash, and heard this wierd ticking, after a few moments look up, and sure enough, the clock is ticking away. I check, yep battery is disconected. I then decided to stop working on the car and come back later.
      Sure it could have been just some electricity in a capacitor, but it hasn't worked since.

      I used to work as a cashier at a local grocery store. We had a rotating lottery type thing between the able-bodied male cashiers to decide who would push carts in the lot. One day it was my turn. Some guy in an old BelAir was trying to start his car. It wouldn't turn over, the battery was dead as dirt. If you turned on the headlights they would barely glow orange for 1 sec then go out. After he tried starting it a couple times he was like, f*ck this. He was going to walk down the street a block to a gas-station/service place to see if he could get a new battery. I used the store's tool kit to help him take the battery out. He figured the shop wouldn't have a reference as to what battery would fit, so he was going to put it in a shopping cart and push it (he was going to carry but I gave him a cart and told him to use that)...
      So the guy left. He didn't come back for a long time. I figured they didn't sell batteries there and he just called for a ride or something (turns out that IS what he did). About 3 hours after he left it was dark in the lot. From the far end of the lot (50 yards or so away) It looks like the headlights are glowing orange again and I thought he came back and still was having probs. with the new battery. I walked over there and didn't see him in the car. Then the lights turned on at full brightness and the car cranks up!!!!!! I was like the car then lurched into gear and start rolling. Another cart-boy was watching from the other side and we both ran to stop it from driving away. It was backed into a spot, and as it was driving, the wheels and steering wheel turned as it pulled out, just like a normal driver would. As we got to the car (it was locked), it stopped, then shut off and returned to its previous state. The owner came out an hour and a half later iwht a tow truck and was like, WTF why is my car half out of the spot. We told him the story, and told him we couldn't push it back because the car was in park again. He believed up because there was no way to fake this, the car was parked in park and locked with no battery. Very scary. I was shaking for like 30 minutes afterwords.

      My Dad's brother bought a car some guy killed himself in. This was back in the 60's, I can't remember what kind of car. Pistol shot to the head, big mess. He got it for free because nobody wanted to clean it up. They called it, "The Big Hurt." I don't know if it was "haunted" but it's kinda grim.

      That is really strange and creepy that the shifter was locked in park on a belair, since Ignition Transmission Lock was not introduced on gm cars till the 80's well after belair's were no longer in production.

      My cousin's and my friend were going over Mt. Madonna through Hecker Pass on a saturday night after some partying and sobering to get to In N Out in Gilroy, when they crested the peak near the old creepy hotel they turned a corner, which was clear suddenly, they saw a pale guy with long hair wearing athletic clothes who "materialized" near their car, they stopped, and when they checked the rearview, he wasn't there. Hecker is a crazy ass road, and who knows how many people have died there.

      Ok- I was just thinking about this a few days ago.
      Back in my final year of high school (87/88) I had only study halls after lunch (I did not take any my first three years of HS). I 'worked out' a free pass away from these study halls (the art teacher was very cool with stuff like that). Sooo......

      A good friend had a Super Beetle, and one nice day we took off at lunch to go cruising around. We bought a bag of ________, and spent the afternoon slowly cruising the countryside while listening to Iron Maiden and AC/DC (his stuff) on his nice Alpine system, while taking tokes.
      Larry (my friend's name) says he wants to check out something he had heard of. We drove towards the TN/VA border, and ended up on some very remote and tight valley roads. We come around a corner and see this tunnel off to the left of the road- up on a small side road- and a very strange looking tunnel. Larry called it the "Cissenball Tunnel"- or something like that (spelling is probably way off?). It is a 'natural tunnel'. That means the natural water flow created this tunnel. (there are actually many of these in this area). But this one was redone to be used as a one lane road, and this one tunnel road was the only way into the valley beyond (explains why the water created the tunnel to begin with). The creek was deepened, and the stones taken and used to make a road on one side of the tunnel.
      Larry says "That's it." and we putt putt up to the tunnel, and once we get half way through-he stops the car and turns off the engine and stereo.(our windows are already down) I ask why- and he says there is supposedly some weird sh/t that happens there. he explains that the 'story' is that a family that lived in the valley on the other side of the tunnel had a tragedy, and for some reason the farmer drowned a new born baby in the creek- and then killed himself from the remorse of his actions.
      Ok.
      So we sit there- listening to the soothing sound of the creek flow through the tunnel. It was really relaxing, and I didn't feel the least bit 'scared' of the situation (it was like 3 pm on a bright sunny day- though the tunnel was dark).
      Then I hear something. It gets louder and louder until I can't ignore it any more.
      "Wha wha whaaa whaaa. wha wha whaa whaaa."
      A chill goes down my spine and my eyes start to water. I turn to Larry as he turns to me- we both look at each other wide eyed.
      Just then a shadow appears just behind the car- we turn and see the silhouette of a man. There was no place to hide, and we would have seen somebody coming up from behind.
      Larry says "shiiiiiitt" and he started the bug and has it going in a split second.
      We pull out of the tunnel. There is this old decrepit farm house just on the other side. The valley is dark because the steep mountains on all sides block the sunlight. After a few seconds, I feel calm again. But then Larry says "Oh crap- we have to go back out the tunnel to leave this valley."
      We zip back through the tunnel with some speed this time- with the windows up.
      Dayum- remembering that still sends chills up my spine.

      No offense, but your story loses a lot of cred when you throw this in there. I know a lot of people who have had "weird" stuff happen under those same circumstances.

      No offense, but your story loses a lot of cred when you throw this in there. I know a lot of people who have had "weird" stuff happen under those same circumstances.

      I know. But I want to be honest. and he got his stuff from a guy that divided up the stuff from his own stash 9and we would get to share some of his stuff before divvying up the stuff- so we got a free buzz before even buying). The stuff was always clean, predictable- NEVER laced. You just don't hallucinate on unlaced stuff.

      Ok- I was just thinking about this a few days ago.
      Back in my final year of high school (87/88) I had only study halls after lunch (I did not take any my first three years of HS). I 'worked out' a free pass away from these study halls (the art teacher was very cool with stuff like that). Sooo......

      A good friend had a Super Beetle, and one nice day we took off at lunch to go cruising around. We bought a bag of ________, and spent the afternoon slowly cruising the countryside while listening to Iron Maiden and AC/DC (his stuff) on his nice Alpine system, while taking tokes.
      Larry (my friend's name) says he wants to check out something he had heard of. We drove towards the TN/VA border, and ended up on some very remote and tight valley roads. We come around a corner and see this tunnel off to the left of the road- up on a small side road- and a very strange looking tunnel. Larry called it the "Cissenball Tunnel"- or something like that (spelling is probably way off?). It is a 'natural tunnel'. That means the natural water flow created this tunnel. (there are actually many of these in this area). But this one was redone to be used as a one lane road, and this one tunnel road was the only way into the valley beyond (explains why the water created the tunnel to begin with). The creek was deepened, and the stones taken and used to make a road on one side of the tunnel.
      Larry says "That's it." and we putt putt up to the tunnel, and once we get half way through-he stops the car and turns off the engine and stereo.(our windows are already down) I ask why- and he says there is supposedly some weird sh/t that happens there. he explains that the 'story' is that a family that lived in the valley on the other side of the tunnel had a tragedy, and for some reason the farmer drowned a new born baby in the creek- and then killed himself from the remorse of his actions.
      Ok.
      So we sit there- listening to the soothing sound of the creek flow through the tunnel. It was really relaxing, and I didn't feel the least bit 'scared' of the situation (it was like 3 pm on a bright sunny day- though the tunnel was dark).
      Then I hear something. It gets louder and louder until I can't ignore it any more.
      "Wha wha whaaa whaaa. wha wha whaa whaaa."
      A chill goes down my spine and my eyes start to water. I turn to Larry as he turns to me- we both look at each other wide eyed.
      Just then a shadow appears just behind the car- we turn and see the silhouette of a man. There was no place to hide, and we would have seen somebody coming up from behind.
      Larry says "shiiiiiitt" and he started the bug and has it going in a split second.
      We pull out of the tunnel. There is this old decrepit farm house just on the other side. The valley is dark because the steep mountains on all sides block the sunlight. After a few seconds, I feel calm again. But then Larry says "Oh crap- we have to go back out the tunnel to leave this valley."
      We zip back through the tunnel with some speed this time- with the windows up.
      Dayum- remembering that still sends chills up my spine.

      Ok- did some research. I was spelling it wrong (but surprising that I rmembered it that well). Here is the tunnel and proper spelling:
      http://theshadowlands.net/places/tennessee.htm
      "Kingsport - Sensabaugh Tunnel - This tunnel was built in the early 1920's and is one of the most famous haunted places in our area. Mr. Sensabaugh is told to have killed his entire family in the stream that runs through the tunnel, and now it is said you can hear his baby's voice crying and legend tells you can see all types of orbs and figures, also it is said that a women and her child was in a bad storm and pulled off into the tunnel to get shelter and the next day they found the body's of the two dead and now it is said if you pull your car into the tunnel and shut the engine down it will not start. "
      Thank God our car started. I would have sh/t my pants.

      I live less than 5 minutes away from this place , been there many times . Police watch it now . Got stopped and searched last time I went through. Kinda sucked but it is a very freaky place . When my mom was a teen she rode out with some friends and they dropped her off and she had to walk out alone . She refuses to talk about it , she has nightmares for weeks just hearing about the place.

      i read some story about an early 80's Ford Capri in the UK that is supposedly "the most haunted car in the world." There's a website that was up a couple years ago where the owner catalogs everything about it. It's been on TV so there must be some validity to his claim.
      Evidently there was a double homicide in the cara (yikes). The guy got it at auction or something for ungodly cheap, and after taking it home, excrement started hitting the fan continuously. Seem to recall his garage burned down, but the car was unscathed; someone parked an identical blue Capri next to his, and it burst into flames, damaging every car around it except the Capri, and periodically screams come from the back seat. He also claims that on a few occasions when driving, he glances into the rearview mirror and sees a man and woman staring back at him, and a second glance reveals nothing.
      I've never sat in a "haunted" car, but when I worked for Lexus we got a Lexus SC430 back from the LAPD... evidently someone got killed in it, though we didn't know the details. There was dried blood on the headliner (which is plastic in an SC430), passenger's seat, passenger's door, driver's door handle, steering wheel... it looked like someone had made a hasty effort to clean some of it up as some of it had been smeared around in circles (on the seat and door). It was black on saddle leather, and there were fingerprint dustings all over it, etc. It was pretty creepy. We paid one of our porters extra $$$ to clean the thing out, and we held on to it for a few weeks as we tried to figure out whether to resell it or to just auction it off (we did the latter). In the meantime, I got to pimp around in it, and it was pretty nice for that... I can't say I heard blood-curdling screams coming from the trunk or saw a murdered hooker out of the corner of my eye, but it was weird. The SC430 is one of my favorite cars and so generally a sense of happy and relaxation fell over me when I got into one, but in this one, I felt suddenly more nervous and would come down with a headache that would immedeately dissipate once I got out. The other salespeople and porters and managers all noted this.
      I lived in a place for a year that I swear was haunted, I could catalog every crazy thing that happened there, but it's a house as opposed to a car and thus lacks the same mystique.
