Just wondering, what do you recommend for an emergency jack? After years of ownership, I just found out my 82 Caddy Superior doesn't have one! Luckily I didn't need one either.

I just got 5 new tires and noticed this. I have a good floor jack for home use, but nothing if I needed one on the road. I am bouncing back and forth between a 12 ton bottle jack or a scissor jack. My neighbor suggested a hi-lift 4X4 bumper jack, but I don't think they would work with the curved bumpers.

Bumper jacks are not recommended for these cars. They were equipped with a scissor jack from the factory. EvilBay has one listed: ebay hearse/ambulance jack listing

You would be surprised. How low a hearse sits with a flat tire.
