Hello Automotive, I have a question. Is it me or does the new Caddillac Escalade and the GMC Yukon look like a hearse?

Or does a hearse look like a Cadillac because, you know, a lot of them are.

Your right schuyler, I agree with you a lot of hearse are from the Cadillac brand. I wonder if GM did this for marketing.

Well, all the Cadillacs have a similar "look & feel." This SUV is closest in form and function to a hearse and the fact that you posed a black one just magnifies the similarity. But the Escalade is a big SUV inside. My daughter had a blue one that toted her large family around pretty well. But she never cleans her cars so rather than detail it she just dumped it for a Toyota minivan, which surprisingly, has just as much room inside as the Escalade. Granny fits inside there, too, though she has to climb over two car seats to get to the rear. I've driven them both and the Escalade is one huge vehicle. You don't have much wiggle room in a lane! The Toyota is a lot easier to navigate, but it's just soooooo boring. I have a Cadillac CTS VSport and love it!

Did you ever think when the hearse rolls by.

That you might be the next to die

they wrap you up in a nice clean sheet

and put you down about 6 feet deep

all goes well for about a week

then your coffin begins to leak

the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out

The worms play pinochle on your snout

they eat your clothes, they eat your hat

they crawl in skinny and crawl out fat.

Can a 6 foot person fully stretch out and sleep in the back? Then its not a hearse, its a camper.

No no like this!

They put you in a wooden box
And cover you over with dirt and rocks
Then worms crawl in
And worms crawl out
And worms play pinochle on your snout
And then you turn a sickening green
And puss comes out like whipping cream
And me without a spoon!

Wonder what happened to that awesome XK-E? It surely did not REALLY go off that cliff? Nooooo. What a waste if it did.

I shouldn't be surprised, manufacturers are doing this all the time now, this is a crossover vehicle!

smurfy, your right. After you crossover from life to death they just roll them bones into your Yukon.

*hey Mortician we are using our own hearse to save money!

Yeah, am guessing hearses will go the way of the crossover too. So, no not far off from looking like future plans perhaps.

It did, according to this…


The hearse Harold originally drives is a 1959 Cadillac Superior 3-way model that is one of the most sought after hearses among collectors today but at the time was considered nothing more than an undesirable used car which was purchased for a few hundred dollars. The Jaguar hearse was really destroyed at the end and no replica exists because they only constructed one version for filming.

Your right intrptr, it was the 1959 Cadillac. Used in 1971. Then it went in for some upgrades.

I didn't know that. I thought it was a converted ambulance. Nice touch…
