Taking The Final Ride

At Least It Wasn't A Got-Damned Prius...

I saw a fairly distressing sight on the way to work the other morning.

It was a brand-spankin' new Caddy XTS with hearse coachwork.

It was...  not right.

See, when you take your last ride, you want a bit of dignity.  Traditionally, a Caddy or Lincoln provided that by giving you a wide-bodied chassis in which to build a suitably elegant hearse.

Well, Caddy don't build land yachts no more...

Trying to fit a hearse body on the modern Caddy frame made it look like you were building a hearse out of a Buick Skylark.

The only way you could fit a casket in the back was to tie down the corpse and slip it in sideways.


This is OK:

This is NOT!!
