At one time in Sydney, you could join a tour group (Destiny Tours) in a hearse which visited ghostly and ghoulish places, including the scenes of famous murders. While the hearses are no longer used, they still provide the tour though using an unremarkable mini-bus.
It was while searching the net that I found several images of hearses in junkyards or left to rot in a vacant lot somewhere. How sad some of these vehicles looked. In their heyday, they could have taken thousands of people to their final resting places, and here they were, after their death, left abandoned and unloved. I thought it was kind of ironic.
