What type of vehicle?
1990 Chevrolet Custom Caprice Hearse – Eureka End-Loader
Info about the vehicle prior to starting it.
This Black Beauty Is Originally From South Carolina And Was Bought 12 Years Ago As A Newly Out-Of-Service Hearse.
It was shipped to my home on an open transport trailer – the driver had some issues!
The driver told me he was kicked out of parking lots at various restaurants along the way as people didn’t want any part of it of the hearse.
Its Been Haunting Southern California Ever Since.
All In All, This Is A Superb Ride And Will Be A Thrill For Any Owner… Living Or Dead!
It’s a gorgeous car, and it should be, after an investment of $15,000 over the years. It turns heads wherever I go, men think it’s cool, but their wives are horrified. Sounding like a hot rod, the hearse is fast as one and it passes everything up but a gas station. I put the ‘fun’ into funeral.
I am the weirdo 11 months of the year and the cool person during the month of October,” Aguilar said of her car. “I was never afraid to stand out; I was always afraid to be the same as everyone else. Diversity has its strengths.

First, let me just say, I am a Christian, a husband, a father to 1 beautiful step-daughter and 3 strapping young boys and a step-grandfather (She calls me “Grumpy”) to a gorgeous step-granddaughter. These will always be my priorities, no matter what my interests are. That said, I strive to keep and maintain a family friendly atmosphere, so my boys and their friends can enjoy the site as much as I do. (Granddaughter isn’t old enough and daughter has other interests.)
