Hello all and I am so glad to be a part of this site! I recently got in a pretty bad accident about a week and a half ago, and my car (a '05 Toyota Corolla) did not make a good sandwich filler between an SUV and a truck, so needless to say my car was totaled. I am alive but a lil banged up, but realized that with every door closed, a window opens, and now that I do not have a car payment any longer, or a car, I can finally focus on the dream car that I have wanted for decades...a hearse!!! I am by no means a mechanic, but I have done plenty of research and understand the pros and cons, yet still I cannot get the thought of driving a used/pre-owned hearse that runs and that I can make my own, out of my head. I live in SoCal, and hope to get a settlement check within a week or so for my total loss, so I am definitely in the market for a great find of a hearse! If other members can keep their eyes and ears out for me, I would greatly appreciate it, and I will be checking up daily to see all the lovely finds from this site! Thank you to Phantom Coaches and everyone here, hope you have a wonderful week!

Well, you've come to the right place :-)
How about coming out to our next meeting in early October? Details should be posted on our calender.

It looks like this is being sold by Lou Farah. Looks good to me. I'm envious that it has working AC; the vast majority of old hearses NEVER had AC, it was an expensive option that usually could not be justified. Being a rust-free California car is a huge plus. You'll have less headaches in the long run with this car than an older car because of availability of Cadillac parts and, since it's pre-76, you don't have to have it smoged.

Whether we approve of the model or not should not sway you one way or another. Each hearse is an individual work of engineering art fabricated one-at-a-time on order. Hence, they tend to be as unique as their owners/drivers.
