    I suggest going to the library and see who checked out "The Fire Lover" a true story by Joseph Wambaugh! Sounds the same! Scary similarity!

    I bet their car is from the 80's, lowered, with something in spanish written on the back windshield in large, gothic type lettering. Other places to look- Salvation Army/Goodwill, Piggly Wiggly, Walmart on a Sunday morning, garage sales and flea markets. When you live in ENC long enough, you get as good as an FBI profiler with this stuff!
