I'm going to be completely honest. I have yet to read "Christine". But I have seen the movie directed by John Carpenter and I am very interested in reading it. So, my question is this-is there anything about the novel that connects to any of Stephen King's novels? I know in "It" that Henry Bowers gets a ride in a 1958 red and white Plymouth Fury after escaped the Asylum. But are there any other connections?

On the main page, go to Dark Tower==it is a good resource for connections of SK books to the DT. Check out the user submitted connections.

I just finished IT - again - and am always happily surprised by "Christine" being there. I forget it every time.

Sometimes there aren't connections in every book but you might find patterns or unintentional correlations. For example, From A Buick 8 takes place in Pennsylvania, too. I like to think there's a wink from Steve on this one.

I think she had a cameo in 11/22/63 but as the book was set in Pittsburgh and involved a discrete entity it doesn't really intersect.
Was anyone driving Christine, or did he identify a ghost driver. I am wondering who the ghost driver whould be Arnie or lebray? Or both of them combined into one person?
