Theodore Sturgeon was a writer Ray Bradbury admired very much. In fact, Ray wrote the introduction for Mr. Sturgeon's first book, a short story collection called WITHOUT SORCERY which was published in 1948.
A novella by Mr. Sturgeon about a killer bulldozer, "Killdozer", appeared in the November, 1944 issue of ASTOUNDING. A link to the cover of that issue appears below. It is the granddaddy of all of those stories and films about possessed motor vehicles. (Sometimes I think my own car qualifies. )
That novella was later made into a 1974 made-for-TV movie starring Clint Walker, for which Mr. Sturgeon co-authored the screenplay. It's not a great film, but it is entertaining. If you would like to watch it, it is available on YouTube. Just click on the link below.
