Zak Bagans, star of the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventurers, is this generation’s Ed and Loraine Warren rolled into one. Like the famous demonologists who investigated the Amityville house on Ocean Avenue and held the cursed Annabelle doll, he’s got his own ghoulish collection of potentially paranormal objects (stored in his personal “Haunted Museum”).
His recent film Demon House documented his purchase and investigation of a home in Gary, Indiana dubbed “the most haunted house in America”. Though he seemed to get more than he bargained for, opting to have the home demolished after a series of alarming “possessions”, Bagans recently acquired another macabre object—a car!
First, check out the trailer for Demon House:
Bagans’ latest acquisition is a (bitchin’) 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. While the car itself doesn’t have a particularly chilling history, the previous owner certainly does: It formerly belonged to the Branch Davidian cult leader David Koresh, the man at the center of the tragic and deadly siege at a compound in Waco, Texas back in 1993. Here are some details from the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
“Koresh had restored the Camaro on the Davidian property and reportedly planned to use it as his getaway car. He even stamped DAVIDES 427 GO GOD on the engine block. The car was seized by government officials, then sold to a wholesaler. It changed hands several times and was offered for sale by a consignment dealer in Phoenix this month for $61,995.”
On the price, Bagans stated: “They wouldn’t budge [but] I got so lucky. The dealer said he got higher offers after they sold it to me. They liked that I am putting it in a museum, where it belongs.”
