Neat link.

There were Model T Funeral Coaches... seems like back then they did everything with more style. Some of the horse drawn funeral coaches were very ornate too.

A friend of mine, Finley McGinnis, had quite a nice car collection until his death. This 1939 LaSalle hearse was one of them, I always thought it was a beautiful car. 1939 Eureka LaSalle Carved Panel 3-Way Hearse

Typically the people who made these Funeral Coaches are the same one who made Circus Wagons. Beautiful workmanship.

this one sits in the Coker museum in my hometown of Chattanooga,TN. This is a pretty neat car with a ton of wood engravings.
