Car Haunting, Part 2
this is a continuation of the previous post, Ghost Cars, Real Tickets. -- ed.
Dutch finally got the refund garnishing company on the line yesterday. He didn't want to talk about it with me, but he implied that it had to do with Big White, Big Red's predecessor. Big White went AWOL a few years ago when Dutch was wandering around France. He left her parked in front of his house (full of philosophy books that are mourned to this day) in Bear Town. When he returned, she was gone. The Bear had her hostage, and was holding her for a steep ransom. The ransom amount exceeded her cash value. Dutch decided to do what any sensible person would do-- flee. He moved, and didn't leave a forwarding address, hoping that the city impound would be happy to forget about it also.
Sadly, we are having no such luck.
