As All Hallows’ Eve draws ever nearer, we bring you this week a skeleton adorned hearse. You may have spotted the car at the Caufield’s Halloween Parade on Baxter Avenue towing a hot rod coffin this year or you may have seen while it picking out your costume at the Caufield’s store on West Main Street, either way this is one spooky set of wheels.
The car is a 1946 Cadillac hearse (which doubled as an ambulance back in the day). The interior is all original (along with some of the exterior paint), but underneath the hood, a modern engine and suspension have been added. Caufield’s is a home grown family business and a must visit in late October. Here’s some info per their web site:
Today, Caufields is one of the largest theatrical distributors in the nation, actively stocking 1000s of items. Caufields manufactures, imports and distributes merchandise to locations all over the United States and to a variety of countries abroad.
The car is parked next to the store, so you still have a chance to go see it in person. We especially enjoy the skulls pressed into the side view mirrors. As always, send your art-car suggestions (and photos!) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
