Do You Love Your Car Enough To Be Buried In It?

You can't take your car with you into the afterlife، but it's possible to spend the rest of eternity behind the wheel.
You might think you love your car، but is the connection deep enough to expend the time، money، and energy to be buried in it? A surprising number people have enough passion for their vehicle to find this immense effort worthwhile. Whether you have a connection with a Ferrari or a nondescript hatchback in China، these clips show that ride can be your final resting place.
The most impressive vehicular burial in recent memory belongs to Billie Standley in Mechanicsburg، Ohio.
It's not in a car but on a motorcycle. He was so serious about going to the grave on his 1967 Harley that Standley's family worked while Billie was still alive to figure out how it could be done، according to the Dayton Daily News. The final undertaking required a modified cement septic tank and three burial plots، but Standley got to take a final ride by arriving to the cemetery on his bike while a truck towed them along.

Lonnie Holloway went out in style. He was buried behind the wheel in his prize green 1973 Pontiac Catalina.
That's not all، though. In the passenger seat of the big coupe، Holloway packed his collection of guns. As one funeral attendee responded to the old adage that you can't take it with you: "You may not take it all the way، you can take it a little ways on the road." Makes sense to us.
