My impression is that Christine is
inherently evil like some people without any specific reason given. I haven't read the book in a few years but it seems like there is just something inherently off with that particular car. Why exactly remains ambivalent. It adds to the creepiness in my opinion when the source of the evil is left unspecified and seemingly random rather than trying to explain it. It implies some sinister force we don't exactly understand is at work. Some hint of predestination. Certain people like Arnie are drawn to it but not necessarily evil themselves. They become as much the victim as everyone else. Many people are fascinated by serial killers, the nazis etc without necessarily being evil themselves.

Aww, I am thinking all of his “vehicale” stories are all related, like trucks, from a Buick 8 (wich I have not read) and mile 81. I am thinking it’s an evil alien force that comes through the radio or some sort of transition or perhaps is Randal Flagg.
