Creepy, freaky & Ghostly
Steve writes, "Here are some pictures of my 1972
Miller-Meteor Hearse. It was found abandoned behind a local
mortuary where it had sat for seven years. I took both
digital and 35 MM pics of it as it was recovered. In both
types of film a ghost appears behind the wheel as it is
towed. You will notice there is not a cloud in the sky so it
is not a reflection. You can see a man's face complete with
nose and long mustache, hands actually grasping the steering
wheel even covering the steering wheel from view. The more
the pic is enlarged the clearer the spirit becomes. Once at
my house for restoration, shuffling noises and whispering
could be heard by all. The shuffling was rather loud at
times, so much so, I thought there was an electrical short.
But with no keys and no battery that couldn't be it. The
hearse spawns dreams also, of the haunted variety. Then for
a spell, small items would disappear and come back later on
or the next day. Sockets, wrenches, bolts just up and gone.
My daughter's car keys also. They were found the next day on
the front porch. I clearly heard a woman's voice say,
"hello", one afternoon with absolutely no one there. I've
seen people's feet as they walked by and I worked under the
vehicle, only to notice them not continue as they passed by
the other side. Or, the smell of sweet roses on a freezing
14 degree morning. The car is just about done now as far as
the restoration goes and most of the pranks have stopped.
They still surprise me now and then though. The license
plate slogan is more than a novelty in this case. I still
get Orbs and Vortexes in my pics."

Addition comments from
By the way, since I wrote you, another
interesting thing has happened. You will notice I have a
hand-blown glass Lilly flower vase on the dash. I had changed
the flowers out and put some dried, scented flowers in the vase.
The next time I went in the car, the flowers had been thrown on
the seat. Jim, this is physically impossible due to the vase
being mounted vertically on the dash! I guess some one didn't
like the scent of the new flowers. No one in my family goes
near, nor will they ride, in it.

Tree growing through the hearse?
Steve writes, "I am attaching another
pic with this email which I call the tree shot. This picture
reveals the tree in the background that seems to be growing
through the car! The closest tree on passenger side is some
30-35 feet away so it is not a reflection. After I saw this pic
I tried to replicate it but it wouldn't work. It was pointed out
to me that the face of an old black man can be seen in the upper
left hand corner of the window as well. The hearse came from a
black owned mortuary.
Note the position of the tree

Also note that the tree seems to have a face... probably just
