Charlie Taker is looking forward to buying a hearse and joining us at our events

May and Bill Taylor definately win the award for longest distance member!! 

They're from Canberra Australia!

We have a recently aquired 1952 Plymouth Cranbrook right-hand-drive rear-loading hearse. 

9 foot glass windows along the side (no side access doors aside from the front 2). 

Side opening rear door. 

It was last used as a bush-bashing rally car (for a charity bash) in 1989. 

For the low, low price of $100 Aussie dollars (about $50 U.S dollars), 

it needs a fair bit of TLC (and donor parts from our other plymouth - hehe) 

to get it on the road again, but its a long awaited aquisition, so it will all be worth it.

Tony Taylor has 1971 Cadillac S&S Parkway that he is restoring also, 

he has a haunted house in his hometown of Carrolton GA which got him interested in hearses
