Got the hearse!

So I FINALLY got a hearse, and isn't she gorgeous!  A 1973 Cadillac in amazing condition, and almost entirely original.  By the way, her name is Shirley.

The awesome front.  How would you like to see this coming at ya at full speed?

"They're coming for you, Barbara."  :)

Nice rear, huh?

The Miller-Meteor tag.

The windshield wiper controls are on the DOOR!

The seats are in excellent condition.

The design on the inside along the sides...where the coffin goes.

A shot of the tires.  Because men always ask about the tires.


  1. I am so jealous right now I am not even going to comment..... ok so I lied! WELL DONE! What are the Halloween plans?

  2. A hearse is a hearse of curse of curse.

    Beautiful. Man, makes me want my own hearse... kustomized by Big Daddy Roth.

  3. Eventually we're going to have purple ground effects and interior lighting, and we're hoping to have flames shoot out of the exhaust pipes. But, since that costs money and time, it won't be ready for this year. However, the night of the annual Halloween party we're going to rig purple rope lighting underneath around the edges to give the same effect, and I'm going to put a fog chiller under it and strobe lights. I'm going to keep her black but hope to put some temporary skeleton decals on that I'll have custom made. I love the old medical sketches of the skeletal system, you know, the ones that have skeletons sitting, walking, leaning against a wall, etc. I'd love to have decals made of them in a cream color on a clear background that I could place around the car. Anyone have any other plans?

    BTW, it's not as easy to find an old hearse in great shape at a reasonalbe price, let me tell you!

  4. I am so envious. I have always wanted a hearse. Maybe when my Cruiser goes to car heaven I'll be able to get me one. Love the name Shirley for your beautiful hearse, my cars name is Betty.

  5. So jealous!! That is just perfect!!!


  6. Thanks everyone! I brought her to work today...can't get anyone to sit in her! They just don't get it.

  7. Oh my word!!! This is AMAZING!!!

  8. Amazing! I've always wanted a hearse of my own!
