* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We never do find out what happened to Tattleman, the deputy on guard duty at the parade.

* ObviouslyEvil: The Car is big and matte black, with huge fenders, a low-cut roof, and windows tinted so dark it's impossible to see the interior. It also has no license plates or handles on it's doors. Virtually the only thing disturbing the overall image is it's shiny grill and over-sized chrome bumper- almost giving the thing an EvilGrin.

A car appears in the [[NothingExcitingEverHappensHere fictional Utah town of Santa Ynez]]. But not just any car: It is a [[CoolCar heavily modified black 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III]], which proceeds to mercilessly [[VehicularAssault run down]] local citizens. The local police force is baffled by this, especially given sketchy claims from eyewitnesses that the car had no plates, and much more oddly, no driver...
