Camino LS6

A few of the Auction cars at Carlisle

Recommended Posts

The first pic is a Hearse from 1919 with 19,000 original miles. It is powered by an early Lincoln straight six. The rear bodywork is carved wood and the car itself is huge.

Like a haunted house on wheels.

o...whoops! sry

Don't worry about it, '58 was probably the year Chevy came closest to being a Caddy.

Dear Lord. :blink:

I want that 1919 Wood Carved Hearse! That's a Ford worthy of

a climate controled garage. That's definatelly the pick of the

litter, although if there's one car that can come close that 1940

Packard is it. I'd drive the wheels off that Packard if I owned it

the only time I'd ever sell a mint 1940 Packard would be to

buy a early 1930s car, esp. a V16. I wonder how much they're

going to sell that Packard for?

I would definitely give my left nut for that carved panel hearse; how much did it end up going for?

I think the buyer is speaking in a very high-pitched voice tonight.

The thing about that hearse is that its really a useless car. The exterior work so ornate you'd fear driving it anywhere and god help you if someone damages it in even the most minor way. I know I'm usually an advocate of "Drive it, stupid!" but something like that should be treated with reverance and kept in a manner that preserves it for what it is.

That thing is really creepy in person, hearses don't generally give me the creeps like this one did.

The same guy sent another one through the auction (mid-sixties Buick) that also seemed to have an extra dose of the creeps for some reason.
