Hearse as removal van, Stockport.

So not all that novel a use for this retired hearse — parked near the registrar’s office and very close to three funeral directors. Hat tip to Lexi for this.


Coffin as billy-cart, Australia.

Whether you call it a soapbox car, a soapbox cart, go-kart or go cart, many a boy and girl’s days have been filled with building and racing a billy cart.

For the record, billy carts are motor-less vehicles usually with only space for a small, fearless driver. Using gravity and the steepest hills in their neighbourhood, billy carts have been known to reach speeds of 50 km/h and more.
