The Road where cars roll uphill

"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Very cool story.  I'm familiar with the area from my time spent in Scotland when I was in the US Navy.  Thanks for sharing that.

My mom was born in New Brunswick before moving to Toronto, but my grandparents kept the family farm in NB. As a kid we would go back to the farm. One summer we visited Magnetic Hill outside of Moncton. I remember a line of cars coasting...uphill.

It certainly is odd.  And has been known for a few hundred years.  Blaming it on witches lol!  Maybe!

There is a place in Lake Wales Florida as well. It's called "Spook Hill"
