    You know how people riding in your car (especially Cadillacs, for some reason) like to say "Home James"? Well my brother climbed in one day and says "Home Chives". I asked "Chives?" and he says "Yep, Chives." I liked the name, especially since it is a greenish color, and it stuck. It's like a fancy butler!
    When my friends rode in the back of the STS they also called me Chives.

    I am no longer friends with those people...

    Funeral Coaches are always expensive new.

    It is an industry effort to lend exclusivity to the owners of them, effectively dictating that usually, only the most civilized people drive them.


    That being said, the price I paid for my Pontiac was just about what she cost new.

    What kind of exclusivity, Chamus? Granted there are few folks who want to drive them and few who do drive them, and granted their drivers might be excluded from other activities, but I am not sure this adds up to "exclusivity" in the traditional sense.

    The exclusivity that few people can afford to buy new Funeral Coaches and that even less choose to. Not really sure why not. I mean, I don't have/want one because I am really not a fan of modern cars.

    Don't get me wrong, many of the people I know have purchased new (two or three years old) or brand new ones as personal vehicles. There ARE Hearses out there that have never seen service.

    What does a new hearse cost these days? I would think they would run north of $100,000 by quite a bit.

    Re: What would your car cost new today?

    Yes, of course, usually at a bare minimum. Some fetch a far higher price, as well.

    Not a "car guy" but I admit I do keep close watch on every new vehicle design and even the concepts that the major coachmakers produce to this day. Probabaly why I can spot and identify them better than standard vehicles, which all look essentially the same to me, provided they are mothered by the same company. It is difficult to confuse a Chevrolet for a Toyota, for example, but modern Cadillacs for instance, all look the same. This Fiance of mine who refers to Escalades as the "Bane of her Existence" (Alongside the H2) cannot be blamed for confusing an SRX briefly for an Escalade when she first saw one. Neither of us had been following the company and had (at the time) ever heard of such a car. I stand by her opinion that when you drive a real Cadillac, everything they make today looks the same.
