@Anklecranker: Sorry mate, but what does 'roflmao' means? I'm Dutch and there for not familiar with the abbreviations used on Englisch forums.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

Ah. Thank god. A positif reaction. And I indeed saw the other photos via the link. Awsom man! To bad in my country it is strictly illegal to drive with something like this on the public road.

....Original....never seen anything like that before.
Last of the V8 Intercepts, a piece of history, would have been a shame to blow it up

This hearse needs to drive in downtown San Antonio.


In fact.....I'll pay to ride in the back ..........on a gurney, and get delivered to the new King of San Antonio during Alamo Days.


Maybe we can get Vernon to DRIVE!

Thanks for the positive words guys, it's always nice to get a good reaction from people.

For anyone curious, a few things...ironically in Australia, the birth place of Mad Max and my inspiration for the car, nearly all mods (from what I hear) are illegal. Over here in the US I've been able to skirt the laws for a few reasons. First, there are absolutely no laws against having combustible propane devices on a car, if I were to get pulled in on something like that I'd be able to argue that prosecuting me would set a precedent that every RV and food truck on the road needed to be prosecuted the same if they used propane to power stoves, grills, etc. The red lights are actually protected under Colorado law that exempts classic ambulances from warning light laws for civilian/non emergency vehicles (I've actually argued that one in court and won)

The one thing I can't argue is, ironically, the window tint which is 5% and far below the acceptable amount of minimum light transmission for tint. All in all, I rarely get pulled over. Partially because all the cops in my home town know "The hearse guy" and the ones in surrounding areas apparently just look at the car and go "Eh, I'm not fXXcking with whatever that mess is today!"

The pics you guys have here are from the first Alexi, which was pretty much a terrible car that rotted in half. After years of trying to stave off entropy I moved all the mods to a better vehicle that has been a far superior ride. A few pics are included below.

For anyone interested, I am working on a feature length movie about a weaponized hearse that goes around running cars off the road and killing random teens. I mention it here because a HUGE inspiration was the opening scene of the original Mad Max and how they just went full speed ahead and didn't pull any punches on the action. If it's kosher I can post a link to it, I am not sure what the rules on stuff like that are around here or if pimping my stuff isn't acceptable. Let me know if you'd like to see it and I'll post a link!

It is good to hear that "Funker Hearse Airlines" is still flying after all those years. (even it has suffered from the Phoenix syndrome ;) ).
I think the mod's are illegal in practically every part of the world except the states. Here in Europe at least for sure.

I'm very curious to the movie you have in mind. Keep us updated.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.
