I am helping a friend search for a short story she read 20+ years ago in junior high. It is about a car that gains a conscious mind and locks the owners in the vehicle and drives and drives and drives. The story is told from the view point of a gas station attendant who sees this car pass year after year.

Anyone know the name of this story?
