Prom is the most important night in many teens’ young lives. Teenagers tend to invest great sums of money (their own or their parents’) in just the right dress or tux, the right formal dinner and even the right transportation. For most kids, a limo is the vehicle of choice. Others prefer an exotic sports car, such as a Porsche or Ferrari, if they have access to one. By choice or default, some kids end up driving their own or their parents’ day to day sedan.
In Banbury, UK, however, a pair of students decided on a less-traditional mode of transportation. The friends decided that they wanted something with a bit more flair – a hearse. So they called around to a few funeral homes. However, they discovered that funeral homes are not insured to provide transportation to the living.
Undeterred, the boys’ parents turned their attention to online auction powerhouse eBay. There, they were able to purchase a used funeral car at just a fraction of the cost of a new one. The boys and their parents then set to work customizing the car.
Draped in organza curtains and decorated with skulls, flames and even neon lights, the car certainly made a splash at the prom. It is unknown, however, whether the boys were able to draw the attention of any young females that night.
Regardless, a funeral car can be a great investment. Solidly built and designed to last, the cars are known for regularly logging in excess of 300,000 miles during their lifetimes. Whether you are in the market for a spooky ride or just a well-built work vehicle, it would be hard to go wrong with a funeral car.
