Yes, but the spirit can be exorcised by having a young boy piss on the tires of the vehicle.
I actually witnessed a father showing his son to do it once, in Tainan county.[/quote]
That’s cool, Quentin. It means that you can always get a ghost-free deal on a used vehicle. It makes me wonder how these superstitions get manufactured and propagated, because they seem to vary tremendously from one place/person to another.
I also want to make up a few “American superstitions” to share with local friends and family… superstitions that let me get out of shit I don’t want to do. Superstitions against eating pig plumbing would be a good place to start for me.
