“Die einzige Konstante ist, dass der Diesel in den USA einen schlechten Ruf hat”, sagt Christopher Neumaier. Er ist eigentlich Historiker am Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung Potsdam, zurzeit Vertretungsprofessor für neuere Sozial-, Wirtschafts- und Technikgeschichte an der Helmut-Schmidt-Universität in Hamburg und hat 2008 promoviert zum Thema “Dieselautos in Deutschland und den USA.

Stephen Mckears, 72, first noticed objects moving in his shed a month ago and asked his neighbour Rodney Holbrook, 70, to help him get to the bottom of the mystery.

Questioning his sanity, Stephen emptied the tub each night, scattering the nuts and bolts across his shed, only to discover the mess had been cleaned by the morning. After weeks of finding large screws, plastic leads, nuts and bolts neatly filed away, the pair decided to set up a trail camera to uncover the mystery guest.
