I’ve always had a soft spot for ghost stories and the paranormal. I don’t believe in ghosts, but I do think they make for interesting stories. I think it’s just human nature to think about what happens after death. Everyone has their own ideas on the matter, so there’s no right or wrong answer. While trying to come up with a story for this project, I happened to drive by an estate sale that was selling an old Mercury Cougar. It got me thinking, “what if a car could be haunted”. Most stories about hauntings seem to involve an old mansion, or a house built on an ancient Indian burial ground, or something similar. But what if the thing being haunted could move? What sort of story could you tell then? My answer was to make a classic road trip movie involving a ghost. Simple.

This is Roy. He's a former sea captain that became the proud owner of a junkyard after a tragic accident at sea.
