On the special Spooktacular episode of the Autoweek Podcast, Master of Scaremonies Gory Scarroll (Rory Carroll) talks with Snake Lingeman (Jake Lingeman), Woooohhhh-esley Wren (Wesley Wren) and Graham Stoker (Graham Kozak) about The 24 hours of LeMons at GingerMan Raceway before diving into scary car movies. Graham leads a discussion about “Christine,” “Rubber” and “Maximum Overdrive” to argue that car movies where cars are the villain aren’t scary.
The group then talks about the various paranormal places that started popping up after the rise of the automobile. Haunted bridges, foggy stretches of highways and gravity hills are part of every small town’s lore, and the hosts talk about why.
Finally, the group discusses the most haunted car currently in the Autoweek fleet — a pumpkin orange Mercedes-AMG G63. The vaunted G-Wagen is a 5.5-liter turbocharged V8 ultra-luxe SUV that is polarizing enough to split the staff down the middle.
