Show Description
'A very eerie thing happened to me the other night in my car' Shep plays cat and mouse with a car on the turnpike. Shep recounts the time he was on a date going to the ballgame in Chicago and was driving on the highway and ends up in the middle of a gun fight between two cars. Another time driving down U.S.41 outside Kentucky he gets passed by a 'rube wagon' when all of a sudden an arm reaches out the back window and releases a sky rocket.
