Why this 1979 Cadillac Hearse Is Better than a Supercar

Yesterday we talked about the most lavish hearse in the world (naturally, a Rolls-Royce) and since it’s Halloween, we’re sticking with the theme but we’ve decided to go at the other end of the financial scale with a 1979 Cadillac Fleetwood Hearse. We even have an Youtube review for you. Spoiler alert: our own thought on this one is that the Caddy tops a supercar.

This Cadillac hearse has served for about a decade, which means it has seen around one thousand funerals, so it has plenty of stories to tell. The first thing that hits you is the personality of the Caddy and, according to the guy behind the wheel, the trolling stickers it is now wearing makes people ask plenty of questions about it, while everybody avoided the thing in the past.

It works better than a... supercar

People try to get attention in all sorts of cars nowadays,especially in supercars, but it seems that this hearse is one of the most effective ways of achieving this goal.

Heck, this must be the most space-inefficient car on the road - not only is it seriously large, but all the other cars around it keep the distance. Oh well, at least that’s translated into plenty of cabin space, since the rear compartment is large enough to hold a casket and a decorative-purpose skeleton.

In case you haven’t noticed, supercars have almost completely lost the treat of natural aspiration, with more and more of them going down the twin-turbo road. Well, once again, our hearse is superior, since it packs a 7-liter V8.

Moreover, the reviewer says this is “stupid-reliable”, which isn’t exactly the proper manner to describe some of the supercars out there.

Oh and don’t think that this story is all about gloom and doom - the Cadillac has massive Sponge Bob floor mats to cover up the rust holes.
