A friend of mine in Michigan spotted this coach driving through the snow yesterday -

1940 Superior-LaSalle Wilmington Gothic/carved panel Funeral Coach..


I imagine some of our Michigan members are familiar with this coach?

That car belongs to Swanson Funeral Home in Detroit and was in fact used during the service for Mother Rosa Parks.

I like the nameplate and it's placement.

I have seen a couple if carved hearses that were all black and I have to say they never appealed to me. But having said that, this white one is attractive and maybe it is because the details are easily seen.
