I tend to have my doubts regarding races from other
planets visiting in 'supa-dupa' craft and the notion of
agencies developing machines that fail or succeed,
seems a more convincing one.

EMP blast knocks out ALL electronic devices so why didn't the engine in the wagon die? And how come the phone still worked in the phone booth?
Truck had a diesel engine, diesel fuel auto ignites under pressure without the aid of a spark plug. The phone system in the 1960s was totally analogue there were no active electronics requiring a battery in a phone in those days. It was, little more than a more sophisticated version of two tin cans and a piece of string. Anything requiring batteries, the car engine, the torch etc was affected.

Good OP Stealthy. I found it interesting how the diseal engine did not die but the gasoline one did. Of course we could point out the fundamental differences between gas and diseal engines, but I'm not sure that brings us closer to the truth. For instance, why do some folks report their car shutting off during a CE and yet once the encounter is over their car starts up again? In this case, the Jaguar was (apparently) not able to continue even after the UFO left the scene.
