Click here for a google search on "Flower cars", there have been some super interesting ones (and BEAUTIFUL) over the years. Think about what this is, it's hauling flowers for your recently passed loved one....flower car - Google Search

Just to add a little extra, quite often flower cars were used to carry the coffin as well as the flower arrangements. It kinda made the whole ordeal a little more festive!

Kind of looks like someone had access to a wrecking yard. I can see a number of cars in this thing. The taillight caught my attention and then I relised that they are grill and headlight assemblies! But from what?

That is cool too Brian. I always wanted to fix up an old 50's trailways bus for a motorhome but have neither the place nor the resourses much less a place to store it if I had it.

Fun to think about........

Actually, this one's a hearse, although the flower car was the same body without the roof in the back

Well, yes, I agree and it's really more bizarre than ugly
But ... I couldn't think of a better place to post something that was funky, even for a Kaiser

It's familiar, but I can't place it. I'm kind of thinking it belongs in a truck

Otherwise, I'm seeing an early-50's Hudson up top, and what looks like a GM fastback roof section

I'll go along with the Beetle rear quarter glass, but I think the back glass is is from an early-50's GM sedannette
