Two words for you guys, "top shelf". You have got to stop hitting the cheap booze and moonshine!.
Usually I feel a presence behind me and hear a voice when I put away parts I just bought, it's laconic and always says the same thing : How much? I don't pay attention anymore now
I hear voices in my 31 A
They usually say
Yeah ... I see this thread going nowhere quickly.
I was going to post that yesterday and decided not to.
I do not call it voices, more like a feeling. I sometimes think cars have a personality.
Sometimes you sit in a car and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up ... you just know you should not mix with this car.
Other times, you sit in a car and the world seem right.
That feeling is duplicated often with people.
You get some person that walks into a room, They have a great smile they are very friendly and want to talk to everyone, and really care what you have to say.
You just get a warm fuzzy feeling around them.
Then there are those that walk into the same room, we are instantly thinking negative thoughts, took the smile right off of our face.
Cars are the same way, I do not call it voices.
My first 49 dodge, I sat in it and I instantly felt the name was molly and saved it from the scrap pile.
My current project, 49 dodge ... I have had it for over a year, is more stubborn and not yet revealed it's name.
I just call it hound dog hauler, as that will be it's job.
Our current ot daily driver, my wife inherited it when her mother died.
My Father inlaw called it the "turd"
Man there was a lot of issues with that car. Once we re-named it to Lady-Belle, she has been a perfect lady and hauled our arses all over the country.
Mine told me his name was Fred...Fred Ford
I would call it feedback. Seat of the pants feedback. Everybody here has had a vehicle go down on them while cruising along. It's a puckered butt cheeks "Whoa, what the hell was that!" thing and you realize that your car is trying to tell you something
My T86 O.D. box opened up like bomb bay doors in my '56 Ford Ragtop. Second gear... Sounded like 'Kingdom Come', but I knew better.
Like I said...I'm NOT psychic.
(but with 6 races won, I knew it was comin'!) 13 times, that blasted tranny. I could build one in my sleep!
I did hear a name that time..."Floyd J. Lippencott..."
My house was built in the mid 1800’s and was moved here in the early 1960’s. We don’t know a lot about it prior to it being moved here, it was totally remodeled after it got here, new roof, carport added, etc. Where it sits was my wife’s Grandparents house that burned before they moved this one in. My wife has lived here most of her life, we got the house after we married in 78, and have done some remodeling ourselves over the years. One thing I added was a French door in the kitchen, we sit at the table and can look out over our back property.
We were in the kitchen the first time I saw it, just a streak of light out of the corner of my eye. I thought it strange, because there were no lights on back there, but forgot about it. Another night, we both saw it, wife said “What was that?”. We thought maybe it was just a reflection from the highway. After that, it seemed to appear pretty regularly, we both saw it several times. One night a couple was over, we were playing cards in the kitchen when the husband saw it. We got to talking, told him we’d seen it before and didn’t know what it was. His wife didn’t see it that time, but did later. Made me feel better to know we weren’t crazy!
Still see it every once in a while, just a quick streak of light. No idea what it is, or when it will show. Never heard anything though, it happens so quick by the time you see it, it’s gone.
The only thing that I hear is "When are you gonna put windows in this damn thing? My hair is getting blown all over."
if you stop at only 4 shots of whiskey you do not hear these things. your mileage may vary.
my cars never talk to me but if I'm workin on em and things aren't going right I sure as shit talk to them............
I was at the hospice my late wife was in, for end-days of her cancer. I was probably the last one out on that floor, I'd stay until they got her ready to sleep for the night. She was in a larger room with closets in a foyer, I distinctly saw an apparition of a short older lady leaning on one of the closet doors, and it was gone as quick as it came. I asked one of the nurses at the desk if they ever saw things at night, she said... all the time.
I can imagine the result of me making a like statement @ the VA this afternoon.....
"If you build it,
it will run"
Now that I think about it, I did hear voices one night when I came to a stop, It was on a Saturday night and was already dark, about this time I heard the voices saying, let us out of the trunk we can hear the drive-in movie has already started from inside the trunk. HRP
I bought my Olds from an estate and I'm 100% positive that guy's ghost is back to fuck my shit up because that car has been nothing but trouble.
I think swade41's avatar is talking to me,need to get my ears closer.
The house I grew up in was haunted. I saw and heard all kinds of things, so I do believe those things exist.
As for my car, the only thing it says to me sounds a lot like a cash register ringing.

The voice I hear usually says slow down you're scaring me.
What's the frequency Kenneth?
I have known a few people with some unexplainable goings ons.
Having entities of unknown origin was not a pleasant experience for them.
When I hear something that don't sound right I figure the car is talking to ME...…..
The brain thinks Kenneth is real but all the while the voice happened during "REM" sleep.
That actually happened. Some nutbar attacked Dan Rather on the street with a lead pipe or something like that, which I am not necessarily opposed to in principle, but the loon (the other loon) was convinced "they" were beaming messages to him, and was sure Dan was in on it, knew what the frequency was, etc. Hm.
Untreated Schizophrenia with psychosis episode. Where I work we house these types. Fine on their meds, but off and the voices of disaster come back..
Yes, I've worked for government, know the type all too well.
last time I heard voices in my vehicle I realized it was the police car behind me......
I was driving across Montana years ago, when the speed limit was " safe & reasonable " and was going 110 in my 34. Held it there for many miles, heard a voice very similar to my late mother saying you will never convince a cop this thing is safe. Dropped down to around 85, got passed by a newer small Mopar, just a few miles up the road he was getting a ticket from the state trooper. Thanks Mom.
I was a complete naysayer. Been married for 25 years to a woman who is very much in touch with another realm. Some of the experiences have scared the living shit out of me. Way too may times for it too have been mere coincidences. My dead grandmother giving her warnings that played out the next day. Her being able to describe my grandmothers favourite outfit she was wearing without ever meeting her. I've learned not to ask too many questions at times. I also grew up in a house that had apparitions seen it. Can't say I believe in ghosts but there is something that is not of this world out there.
Mine keeps telling me to slow down !!!
