Summary
Eighteen-year-old Ned, having taken to hanging out at the barracks of state police Troop D in rural Pennsylvania after the death of his father, Trooper Curtis Wilcox, becomes obsessed with learning the truth about a 1954 Buick Roadmaster--apparently a conduit to the underworld--the squad has had secreted in a locked shed since 1979 when its owner mysteriously disappeared
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
