No matter what you do you still can't hide ugly. I think, they think, if they keep putting pictures of the car out, they think we will become desensitized and like it. Everytime I see it, I think of another reason to puke in my chum bucket.

My thoughts exactly, Kenn....... That coach-builder deserves one of these:
What were they thinking when they came up with this design???....with a liftgate no less!!! How cheap and tacky!!....

A hearse that also carrys the family is a common tradition in some regions over seas, like Japan, and we have even had this method off and on for over 100 years. Remember the omni buses? So I see no respect there. Although only having one rear seat Federal has been making 6 door hearses since at least 2005. Also having one rear seat but only 4 side doors coachbuilders like Krystal built at least one in 1996, Image coaches, and I think Superior recently built some.
In an old issue of TPC, (sometime around the late 90s) they had an artical about a new Chrysler (Sebring?) that was super stretched into a hearse having 2 or 3 rear seats. Cant remember the builder without digging out the issue.

As far as this one goes, I think it may look better with drapes instead of tint, or a landau.

While I can appreciate the effort and uniqueness about all I can say is...

I personally would be offended getting into it after the trauma of a funeral seeing the decanters.
