Horrorod Time: 1991 Toyota Crown Hearse

It is almost Halloween, which means time to feature some horrorods. When I die, I want to by buried in this next vehicle. And no, I don’t mean I want it used as a hearse at my funereal procession, I mean that I actually want to be buried inside this vehicle with me and the vehicle in the ground. Or maybe a floated out to sea while on fire – Viking style. I’ll let my next of kin decide. Find this 1991 Toyota Crown Hearse offered for $9000 in Sacramento, CA via craigslist.

Part hearse, part temple, all the attention you could ever want. What you see here is a Japanese “miyagata” hearse; lavishly decorated to resemble Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. Once popular conveyances for honoring loved ones and paying final respects, only 500 miyagata are reported to still be in active service in Japan. Some countries have found other uses for these glorious works of art, using them as mobile temples to serve rural and far flung communities. This particular example is exquisitely ornate with engravings and figures of dragons and birds, a metal roof, and a glistening interior compartment complete with lighted chandeliers. One thing’s for sure – I’m looking forward to meeting its new owner and hearing what they have planned for it. This hearse was imported from Japan in February 2021 and is offered for your consideration.
