Rounding out our coverage of this month’s 1st Cult Film Club movie pick, The Wraith, I thought it would be fun to share some of the background research we used when putting the show together, as well as taking one more look at the badass Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor… Inspired by the Porsche 962, this
