Very Cool! as someone who is in the biz, I can't understand why there aren't more specialized funeral service vehicles. (I suspect cost) - In Britain you can get these:

But, more relevantly for North America - many funeral homes also have limo companies - why those limo companies don't also have classic cars and classic hearses - complete restomods with new engines and AC? I suspect there would be lineups of gearhead families wanting to use them - particularly in larger urban centres.

(Funny story: years ago when female funeral directors were still comparatively rare, I was doing a funeral as as we were making our way to the cemetary and said female was driving the hearse. In the family car, one of the grown children dissolved into laughter - tears running down his face he turned to his very confused siblings and said, "Well, Dad always said that if he had to go he wanted to go in a Caddy with a blonde in it!" :D )

keep the pics coming!

I asked PJ (whose family owns the funeral home)
if they had jokes,etc.,that they tell among themselves.
I've heard of one funeral worker who had a tee shirt
that read "I SEE DEAD PEOPLE"

don't exactly want to give funeral procession a 'thumbs up' but, looks dignified
