Halloween 2020


We headed to a tiny blink-and-you-miss-it town in Kansas for an auction awhile back, and it was there that we spotted this old hearse.  Judging from the tail lights, it looks like a ’62 Cadillac.  It has suicide doors and would have been powered by a 390, originally.  The crazy thing, though, is that this is a street corner in the middle of the town.  Seriously, check out the street sign from this angle.  This hearse is situated at the corner of Seventh and Gilman.

About four square blocks in the center of town were overgrown and covered with old cars in a similar fashion.  We spoke to a local and apparently one family owns them all and is not interested in selling, not even one.  The real horror is that someone would rather let the cars rot into the ground than sell them on to a good home.  After all, you can’t take it with you, and that’s why there’s no luggage rack on this hearse!

Happy Halloween!
