I'm just suggesting we remove all the warning labels
and let the problem solve itself.

Well....I have been to a funeral or two in the middle of nowhere that could have used the 4x4. The Caddys don't always have the best traction, but its a wee bit short and well....I think a little more sporty than most mourners would go for....interesting though...

When I worked at the funeral home one of the guys there got his hands on a 1967 (if I recall) Cadillac hearse in mint condition...it had the big fins and everything, it was hilarious. The bosses got mad at him showing up to work in it, they didn't think it was appropriate so he started driving his motorcycle instead lol, which they didn't like either (stuffy bunch). It was an impressive car!
If you can get your hands on a used hearse they've usually got low milage and haven't been driven much over 40km/h, usually got big V8s and go like the wind if they're not governed. Not terribly practical though, two seater,  its a great big rolling blind spot, takes lots of time to learn to parallel park one of those babies! I can only imagine how interesting it woudl be to drive an Eagle hearse, higher off the ground, I'd probaby back over stuff all the time.

I have seen some nice hearses around Nebraska.  I have never seen Suburban ones though.  I like the looks of that Eagle one.  A guy around Omaha does tours of hunted houses around Halloween in his HEarse.

I would die to take a ride in that! I think the photo shop section I.E. suggested would be really cool. Atleast give it a chance and see where it goes. Maveric had a great idea of combining a eagle and a gremlin and calling it a Greagle. I think a section with photo shop would spawn a ton of ideas.

But then its just another hearse!  I think it would look great with the nice big aggressive tires.  Sure, it wouldn't be for everyone, but some people would love to be carried away in it.
