Summary
After his police trooper father is killed in an auto accident, young Ned Wilcox starts investigating a mysterious vintage vehicle, kept locked in the station barracks, in the hope of uncovering the sinister secrets surrounding it
Summary
The state police in Statler, Pennsylvania, have kept the mysterious, vintage Buick Roadmaster caged out in back of the barracks ever since 1979. But even as it sleeps, it breathes--inhaling a little bit of this world, exhaling a little bit of whatever world it came from--until the fateful day when its terrifying secrets are finally revealed
