Hey, thought I could help with something. I couldn’t bear letting this go unanswered for you two after hearing how f*cked up you were after mentioning it! The radio mentions avoiding a certain stretch of turnpike… in a short story (from a Buick 8 is the source iirc) there’s a rusty old car that EATS travelers who happen upon it. It resides on said stretch of turnpike, so I’m guessing after some folks keep going missing there’s probably someone looking into it. Hope that helps! Love the show, you are making up for my WestWorld withdrawl 😉
Oh nice dig! Thank you for that! Outstanding. And I am so glad you are digging the show!
From a Buick 8 was written about a car from an alien world. Mile 81 is the short story that is featured in The Bazaar of Bad Dreams, but first came out as an exclusive for Kindle. That’s the story of the car eating people on the turnpike. Now a turnpike is mentioned and is a big part of the story of From a Buick 8 as the boy’s father, who was a cop, was killed while pulling over a big rig.
That story is actually Mile 81, a short story about a car eating other people and cars at a rear stop off of a turnpike. From a Buick 8 is also about an alien car but the main focus of that movie is how much the boy’s father became obsessed with that car before being killed off of a turnpike while he had pulled over a big rig.
