The original truck from the film is owned by a private collector in Maryland, who kept it in storage awaiting the filming of JC3. See more »
Throughout the movie, Jeepers Creepers drives an enormous truck in which he chases potential victims, transports bodies, etc. So when he needs to fill up the gas tank, does he siphon the gas from his victims' cars or does he just use his Visa? Not to mention, his truck is in excellent mechanical condition which leads to 3 possible options. Jeepers Creepers is either a highly skilled mechanic in all aspects of automobiles, he has never been to the same mechanic twice, or his usual mechanic has some very heavy brass balls. On that note, how does he power the lights and music players in his house of pain? Is he on the grid; paying his utility bills, taxes, and everything else, or has he once again astounded us and managed to produce his own power for as long as he has been around killing stupid kids.

The first time I heard that story, I used to think this would be the road I'd die on.

Half A Terrifying Movie
Jeepers Creepers had me! It had me the way so few horror films have ever had me. For about 30/45 minutes, I couldn't move - I was paralyzed with pure fear. The mood was thick, the threat was frightening, the characters were pretty well drawn, the acting was good - everything was going swell.
And then the creature feature silliness starts.
It's a shame that Jeepers Creepers can't keep its energy up to a satisfying finale. Maybe people's mileage will vary. Personally, I'm not too scared by a creature that sprouts wings and flies off with people. It's just too goofy for me. It's a lot scarier to think that this creature might be something even spookier. Maybe if they'd kept the creature in the shadows more, it would have been scarier to me.
Still, the first act is one of the most terrifying things I've ever seen in my life and that's got to count for something.
