Are those early 20th century attempts to make motorized hearses look like the horse-drawn ones, or are those more modern?

It would never pass DMV inspection. Not mutated enough.

Any one else experiencing the insertion of that piece of childhood folklore that starts, "Oh never laugh when a hearse goes by..." every time you read the title of this thread?

No, but our school bus in VA went by a cemetery daily. The other kids taught me to hold my breath until we were past the place. Care to share? I know, I could google it.

Oh, and nice side-boob on the weeping angel.

Never laugh when a hearse go's by.

You may be the next to die..

They will wrap you up in a bloody sheet.

And bury you six feet deep..

I got to see inside the Carthedral when it was on display over at the Towe Museum in Sacto - I love the stained glass... what a phenomenal car! (IIRC the bottom is an S&S FC, the top is VW. The workmanship and work superb!!!! And yea, verily, the DMV would likely never approve it as an approved mutant vehicle nowdays... ;( Sad for such a legendary piece of drivable (and street legal) art..

The early Coaches look like they're out of the 20's... I've seen a 29 Cadillac, a slick and streamlined late-30's Packard "Combo" (both a hearse and an ambulance), and my favorite, an ancient Packard conversion from about 20-something. The whole carved wood thing was part of the era... after all, who wanted their last ride to be in the back of a stakebed truck formerly used for hauling kegs of beer? (OK, never mind, I could think of a lot worse ways to be delivered to your final resting spot then via a beer truck!)

Like the old saying - Don't let your first ride in a hearse be your last...
