And it’s goodnight Vienna from him

Charles Cowling


Former HGV driver Darren Abey has created a hearse fit for fans of Del Boy and Rodney and is marketing it under the snappy business name of Only Fools and Hearses.

Says Mr Abey, ‘I got two scrap cars, both three-wheelers, which weren’t worth anything and only useful for their fibreglass parts. We stripped and gutted them and cut up the vehicle to stretch it to a length of 8 foot 8 inches, so we had a stretched three-wheeler that would be suitable to use as the trailer.’

The conversion cost him £8,000. His hearse even has leopard print fake fur on the dashboard.

We can’t find a website for Mr Abey’s business, but we can tell you that the full story is in the Daily Mail here.

Brilliant! I’d offer it.

In my world it’s simple…..I provide a service…..someone purchases it….that’s a transaction…and that tells me this can be a business.

If the market restricts the price you can charge, for whatever reason, then don’t go into the business (or vocation whatever you choose to call it). It’s Choice! – just as we proclaim to give families choice….it’s something we have too as individuals.
