This happened in a little town in Newfoundland, and even though it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's absolutely true!

This guy was on the side of the road hitch-hiking on a very dark night in the middle of a terrible, terrible rain storm. The night was foul. A nor-easter was doing its worst and no cars were on the road.

The storm was so strong the guy could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly, he saw a car come slowly toward him and then it stopped right beside him. The guy, without thinking about it, got in the car and closed the door and only then did it become obvious that there was nobody behind the wheel!

The car started to creep very slowly.

The guy looked at the road and saw a curve coming his way.

Petrified, he started to pray, begging for
his life. He was in a total state of shock, when, just before the car hit the curve, a hand suddenly appeared through the window and turned the

The guy, now paralysed in terror, watched how the hand appeared every time the car was approaching a curve.

Finally, totally terrified, the guy managed to open the door and jump out of the spooky car.

Without looking back, the guy ran through the storm all the way to the nearest town. Soaking wet, exhausted and in a state of utter shock, the pale, visibly shaken guy, walked into the first bar and asked for two shots of Screech (Newfoundland high proof rum).

Then, still trembling with fright, he started telling everybody in the bar about the horrible experience he just gone through with the spooky
car with no driver and the mysterious hand that kept appearing.

Everyone in the bar listened in silence and became frightened, listening to this eerie story; hairs stood on end when they realised the guy was telling the truth because he was crying and he definitely was't a drunk.

About half an hour later two more guys walked into the same bar, soaked to the hide and looking like they had just returned from Hell and a personal meeting with the Devil himself!

One guy turned to the other, "Look, me son, there's the lazy ars'ole who got hes'elf into me
car while we was a pushin' it!"

I used to live in Argentcia (sp? it's been almost 45 years since we left) and that sounds like when we lived there.

"It's an old story, told too many times - still being told. The story of the manipulation of simple people, and the of the land itself, by men devoid of conscience." Farley Mowat

Once a town -- Then the largest overseas US Naval installation -- Now a environmental disaster area.

It is a true shame that so few care and so many have suffered as the result of greed and the thirst for power.

Argentia! Just across the Bay from Placentia!!!!!!!!!
