The hotrod hearse has arrived!

Charles Cowling


What you think? Like it?

He’s one of life’s good guys, is David Hicks, whose brainchild the hotrod hearse is. Here’s his story: 

The Final Cruise Company was created when the life of a friend was cruelly taken on 29th May 2010. I had known Martin for a number of years, through my occupation working on Hotrods and he will be dearly missed. Martin’s last wish was to have his ‘Final Cruise’  on the back of my pick-up truck, followed by the  A602’s Hotrod Club. Thinking of Martin and as a mark of respect to his wife, Di, I decided to continue this service and carry the name MARTIN on the side of my hotrod truck, in memory of a thoroughly nice guy. 


The hearse is a Fordson pickup. There’s a fully customed coffin deck and P.A. to play your favourite music. The cruise driver can be in hotrod or funeral dress and a conductor is also available.

Love the camp fd strutting his/her stuff at the head.
But I’d like to see some rubber laid on the pretty brick paving instead; or perhaps as well, with a smoking lap of honour, (easy on the corners, these hot rods are built for the straight).
