Bring Out Ye Dead: Japanese Hearses

When Japanese people die, it’s not enough to go out in a big, black, velvet-lined station wagon. You have to arrive at the afterlife party in style. That’s why we’re glad that alert reader Toyotageek posted a link to pictures of Japanese hearses. This one pictured here is based on a Nissan President, which is probably what an actual president would take his final ride in, but for the Japanese rice farmer there’s even a Toyota Hilux pickup. Enjoy, you morbid sickos!

    WOO HOO, I love this thread. This is a combination of two of my favorite passions Japanese cars and hearses. Apart from all my old Toyota metal, I also have a 68′ cadillac hearse. It makes my 85′ MR2 look like a Hot Wheel. I wish I could get my hands on one of those Crown hearses built american style. I would be a happy camper then.

    It’s like dekotora for the dead!

    Jeff – I’m surprised the MR2 can’t fit in the back of the Caddy entirely.

    BuddyJ – Good one! 😀

    Heeeey…. why not convert one of these beauts into a mobile shogunate? It’s already part castle anyway… All you need is a moat and a few warriors in full armour…
