Come close, children, and see the living crocodile. A vintage '54 blue Buick Roadmaster. At least, that's what it looks like...

There is a terrifying secret shrouded in Shed B in the state police barracks in Statler, Pennsylvania. A secret which, for the past twenty years, has drawn the troopers, territied yet irresistibly tempted, to look at its beautiful chrome fenders, silver grille and exotic exhaust system.
