    Well that's a relief, cremated remains. I was picturing bones, leathery skin, and hair!

    Yup, body in the trunk?
    I guess they could mix his ashes with bondo and make him a part of the chassis.

    I sold my 1968 Mustang last summer. Without me in it.

    That was my first thought as well.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    Believe it or not, I once performed a funeral for a guy whose last will and testament specified that he was to be buried with his Harley. The Funeral Home and Cemetery Directors contacted the city and they were informed that burying a motorcycle would create an environmental hazard and thus was impossible. The family wouldn't hear of such a limitation on their freedoms and threatened to go to court. I was asked to try and convince the family otherwise.

    I learned the guy was a veteran, so I contacted the Patriot Guard and they agreed to escort him. Then I arranged for a black pickup to pull a motorcycle trailer with the bike on it behind the hearse (riderless, with boots turned to the rear and tied to the pedals), to the graveside and park it next to the casket. The pickup guy said he could do one better. He knew where he could borrow a trailer for a motorcycle that looked like a hearse. So the Funeral Home hearse / pickup trailer idea was scrapped. I applied the brakes when others started to get involved and suggested an open beer bar at the Funeral Home parking lot and a couple other nonsensical ideas.

    That was the strangest funeral service I've ever done. The procession looked good until the Patriot Guard guys went past, then it looked like a gypsy parade!

    The Mustang idea was much more appropriate.
