Hearse pictures for Black Friday
Personally, I do not enjoy the feeding frenzy that is Black Friday, although there are occasionally some good deals online that I can get behind.
The first motorized hearses appeared in the U.S. in about 1909, although horse-drawn carriages were still preferred. I can’t tell you much about them, so we’ll set the calendar up a few years.
Occasionally, some kook’ll want one, though. NASCAR driver Tony Stewart had an ’84 Cadillac hearse customized by Unique Whips a few years ago, complete with giant stereo speakers where the dead people used to go.
I’ve gathered up a few promotional photos of old hearses, and am including them in the slideshow below. Or click this link for a better version of the slideshow. Be careful out there.
