A guy one year behind me in High School owned a '58 Junk Hearse for his second car.  His first was a '59 New Yorker, but he dumped it when the reverse gear went south.
 
Anyway, he was at my house when we were having a big swim party.  There were cars all around the house, with the Hearse as the center-piece.  My Mom was slowly dieing at the time, so when her best friend drove by the house and saw the hearse and all the cars, she KNEW my Mom had died and we had not told her.
 
She called me up and cussed me out!
 
Enjoy your hearse if you buy one, but be sure to let others know IT'S JUST FOR FUN!

Shame...  Like a '61 NYer ambulance ISN'T rare enough, not to mention the last of the finned Exner cars.
 
With enough scratch, ANYTHING is restorable.  RIGHT? 
 
Now to just find said scratch...  digging holes in yard...  looking for lost Confederate gold shipment...  moon rocks...  Jimmy Hoffa...  cap from a 16oz returnable bottle of Tab Cola...  ...

As soon as we get some good weather, I will begin to tackle all the little problems of owning an old car.  Being that it is about 35 years since I last worked on a Chrysler, I will also be looking for some help and guidance as to how best to do certain mechanical jobs that are Chrysler specific, such as engine valve seals.   I will also be posting a number of times in the wanted forum, since I know that there are some minor items that will need to be replaced.  Thanks Junk......

Since you are a Jorsey Boy, there is a tool box available, and plenty of advice.  Not sure what you are working on though. . .
 
How about some pics of it in Members projects.  http://www.moparfins.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=10
 
If you want help, the Mob congregates at my house. . .when I can fit it in the driveway or have time.  I have a dozen things going on right now. . . .  Starting on the VOAB (Vert On A Budget) very soon.  Good or bad weather.  As soon as I get the 1/4 on the car, it will fly.

I left Jersey a little more than 35 years ago, but I would love to still be there if it were possible.  I left after having seen the Newark riots, and thinking that I didn't ever want to be anywhere near that type of an event again.  I now live on 15 acres in Northeast CT in a very small  town.  My neighbors are the deer and other wildlife.  The great thing is that I can have as many cars as I want, and no neighbors to complain.  I will be going to another car meet that is being held in Southern NJ this summer.  I will have the Chrysler there.  Junk.

Be careful in Jersey Junk...  If the local mob finds you they'll abduct YOU and yer car
