THE DEATH CAR

WHEN I WAS IN HIGHSCHOOL I REMEMBER A RUMOR GOING AROUND SCHOOL ABOUT
A 1963 CORVETTE THAT WAS FOR SALE FOR THE RIDICULOUS PRICE
OF $200.00. THE REASON IT WAS SO CHEAP WAS THAT SOMEONE HAD DIED IN
IT AND IT WAS SO LONG BEFORE THEY FOUND HIM THAT THE CAR SMELLED
VERY BADLY. THE CAR HAD BEEN FUMIGATED, RE-UPHOLSTERED AND AIRED OUT
THOROUGHLY, BUT THE CAR STILL STUNK TOO BADLY TO DRIVE.
