When you can't afford a Hummer, but still want to burn as much gas as one.
Huh. OK, well that's an $8,000 1990 Chevrolet Suburban towing a $100,000 1988 Airstream. Why in the world are these people dragging around a 20-year-old camper on their family vacation? Why wouldn't they purchase something affordable and modern and practical? I'll tell you why, previous sentence: It's because car production in the horror world stopped somewhere around the Mr. Belvedere era.

And here's the car from It Follows, which is owned by the 20-something asshole guy who passes the venereal monster onto the main character. This young bro is driving a 40-year-old 1975 Plymouth Gran Fury. If you're wondering, that's not even a cheap car to own. Unless he inherited it, someone in his position would do better driving a 2005 Camry than this high-maintenance mobile museum.
If racial slurs and cigar smoke were ghosts, this would be the Overlook Hotel of cars.
