Good Grief 2

I was a fan of the TV show Six Feet Under. In the beginning it was something fresh. As the series progressed the storylines became more absurd. The opening titles were also groundbreaking and much emulated since.

On a visit to California some time ago I spotted a hearse for sale in Venice - complete with gurney. It was unbelievably cheap, about $700. Not bad for a Cadillac…tempting though it was I didn't have the time to figure out how I would freight it back to New Zealand. As it was Halloween the chap selling the vehicle was dressed as the Grim Reaper - complete with sickle. Where's you camera when you need it?

Perhaps this realistic scale model 1966 Cadillac S&S Landau Hearse which can be had for a paltry $99USD from a website called PushinDaisies.

According to the site:
This beautiful model hearse is a rear loader and comes complete with an extending rear service table to help load the casket. As always each model comes complete with a removable wood grain casket as well as a separate church truck for setting the casket on. Highly detailed inside & out!
Available in 4 Colors. Black, White, Silver, and Maroon.

Tempting isn't it? To die for… (Mark Twain didn't say that).

Thanks to BoingBoing for the original pist


  1. I'm pretty sure Neil Young drives an old hearse. Has done for years.

  2. My, my, hey, hey.
    Better to burn out than to fade away.
    Do you think that might have been advocacy for cremation?

  3. Actually I think we simply needed a cheap station wagon to carry band equipment...
