Know any interesting stories about haunted vehicles?
The holidays piss me off, because it’s all happy and shit. I want some horror damn it.
Ghost stories throughout the ages and the world are endless. But they’re not always haunted places, or people who remain as spirits after death…there are a lot of stories about haunted vehicles. Phantom ships on the ocean, the sound of a train going by at midnight, but with no train in sight, cars that kill every owner who buys them…my favorite one is about Pippo the Demon Plane.
This plane flew over Northern Italy during WWII, and was recognized by its distinct ’‘pip pip’’ sound caused by the engine. This plane would fire at people, buildings, it was just one crazy airplane. But nobody knew what kind of plane it was, as it was never seen, nobody knew who was in it, if anyone…and nobody knew who’s side it was on…apparently no one.
I thought it was interesting because it wasn’t described as a ghost, more like an actual plane, governed by something unknown. What creeps me out about it is, there is some basis for the story; the English flew planes at night over Northern Italy for reconnaissance missions, and the types of planes used were known for their engines making pip pip sounds…so of course, in a time of war and all, people were frightened because they didn’t know what the hell was going on, and what those planes were doing there. It was blown out of proportion…but during a war, where people kill each other and destroy things, it might not be so hard to imagine. To this day, people still talk about Pippo…
Personally, I can’t help but to find this Pippo story fascinating, and it also sounds kind of cute. Beepy sounds and stuff as it flew by, haha. Probably wasn’t so cute for the people who were frightened by the story, or whatever it was that spawned said story.
Here are some links for the story;

So thanks for reading if you did, now, do you have a famous (or perhaps not so famous) story about a haunted vehicle? Any vehicle, horse powered, steam powered, gasoline, diesel, whatever. From any time, any place…maybe it’s your own? Is your car haunted? Tell all. I’m curious as to might be out there.
