Near the small desert town of Santa Ynez, a mysterious black car runs down two teenage bicyclers en route to camp, then it hit-and-runs a hitchhiker with local Amos Clements as witness. Sheriff Everett puts his men on alert and plants road blocks in the area to arrest the murderer, but soon he himself falls victim to the car. Sheriff Wade Parent leads the hunt for the vehicle that threatens their town and seems impossible to locate. When his beloved girlfriend, teacher Lauren Humphries, challenges the driver in a cemetery, the car hunts her in her home. Wade realizes he might be dealing with supernatural powers. Written by

Did You Know?
The technical specifications of the four versions of "the car" were as follows. They were built on a Lincoln Mark III chassis with a 460 cubic inch engine and deep-recessed chrome-plated Cragar wheels. The 18-gauge steel frame weighed 5500 pound, was 20 ft (6 m) long and 9 1/3 ft (2.8 m) wide. The cars' bodywork was painted in steel, pearl and charcoal coloring. The cars' windows were laminated in two different shades, smoked on the inside and amber on the outside, so one could see out of it but not into it. See more
