“Cannibal Harvester” by Shaggadelic
I love this first and foremost because it is done in the style of old model car boxes. Also, it has a combine rotary thresher, and I’m a big fan of the publication “300 things you can make from a combine or schoolbus” because they cost $1500 and come with hydrostatic diesels, hoses, splitters, levers, and motors, and can be fitted with a variety of common remote-control and gps-guided systems, so it’s basically a giant robot in a box. Thirdly, there’s a lack of good off-road hearse treatments but this one has it all, including gore-intake vents, a megaphone, cannon, machine gun, fold-down window hatch, and extended fuel range.
In cities, where graveyards had been pushed to the edges of town, it was common to have a funeral train to take mourners to the funeral. There was one in Chicago that ran from the Loop to the Graceland Cemetery (this rail corridor is now a bike path) and in London exporting the dead was such a chore that they had daily service on the awesomely-named London Necropolis Railway, where a first-class ticket would buy a better trip for the deceased. Funeral trains would often be pulled by steam long after the advent of diesel engines.
Pictured above is a Guard Van from the Canberra Railway Museum. It’s a multi-purpose car with a sitting area on one end, a freight door for mail and such, and a station for the train guards. Then, at the utmost lower rear, is a little hatch. The hatch is for sliding a coffin into a special compartment, for transportation between towns. The coffin would be loaded after the passengers, who would never know they were traveling with the dead.
