Ghost Car???

  1. Got this in my email the other day (no idea as to the truth of it)...

    This story happened a while ago in Brisbane, and even though it sounds
    like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's true.

    John Bradford, a Sydney University student, was on the
    side of the road hitch hiking on a very dark night and in the midst
    storm. The night was rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so
    strong he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him.

    Suddenly he saw a car slowly coming towards him and stopped. John,
    desperate for shelter and without thinking about it, got in the car and
    closed the door, just to realize there was nobody behind the wheel and
    the engine wasn't on!

    The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road and saw a curve
    approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then,
    just before he hit the curve, a hand appeared through the window and
    turned the wheel. John, paralysed with terror, watched how the hand
    appeared every time they came to a curve.

    John saw the lights of a pub down the road so, gathering strength,
    jumped out of the car and ran to it. Wet and out of breath , he rushed
    inside and asked for two shots of tequila. He then started telling
    everybody about the horrible experience he went through.

    A silence enveloped everybody when they realized he was crying
    and....wasn't drunk.

    About 15 minutes later, two guys walked into the same pub.
    They were also wet and out of breath. Looking around and seeing John
    Bradford sobbing at the bar, one said to the other, "Look, Bruce..
    here's the f--king idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it."
  2. Hey what you sure it was a a Sydney University student, sounds like Queensland uni student to me :p
