Born From The Grave
One of my greatest fears in life is waking up alive in a sealed coffin 6 feet underground. Just the thought makes me hyperventilate and sweat bullets, so you can imagine that Uma Thurman's scene in Kill Bill 2, when she dug herself out of grave had me clenched to my brown paper bag gasping for air. Coffins are the last place I would ever want to end up, even when I'm dead. So there would never be any possibility of me riding in a hurst, right? Well if the hurst looked like this, I would ride it till I die!
While shooting a weekend charity event for a good friend of mine, the first thing I saw when I pulled up was this Ghostbuster-looking vehicle (by the way, their car was actually an ambulance converted hurst). The owner of the vehicle actually rents out the hurst for events, music videos, photo shoots, pretty much for any reason. The car has been through a major transformation from the previous owner who abandoned the project. It was neglected for months sitting in storage, but thanks to the owner's brother who had ambition for this car, rolled it out, cleaned, gutted, reupholstered, and remolded the car to what you see before you.
The car is still am ongoing project car, and will probably go through another major transformation, but the car already makes an impression anywhere you drive it. Everything from the suicide doors, to the custom living room couch thats been bolted and retrofitted to fit into the back seat where coffins were rolled into, the details small or major all add character to this Funeral Coach.
