Alternative MPV ! - BobbyG
Was following a stretch black Omega today filled with what I assumed to be mourners due to its colour.When it pulled into the supermarket car park I realised that it was obviously just a family car as they got out to do their shopping.

Made me think - how good a buy is an ex undertakers stretch limo? You will get a permanent 8 seater (at least) with a big boot.

Anyone any experience of buying these - at what age / mileage do they get sold on? I assume they don't spend much time cruising the motorways, in fact I would imagine much of the time they don't even get in to top gear!

I would not care to be trying to park one in a Seicento sized space at Tesco.
It may be that they can get sold on in decent nick mechanically, as they have to be immaculate outside and in.

I've always fancied a hearse as an alternative estate car. I've seen Granada and Princess hearses go at auction for as little as £300. They can still rot underneath though, even with shiny paint, but I would expect them to be immaculately maintained mechanically. Imagine a breakdown when loaded.

I should imagine that the handling is a bit on the STIFF side though!!

Hearse or stretch-limo no good as an MPV - OK for people carrying but dead useless otherwise. Seats usually don't come out, and with stretch limo, how do you fit fence panels, paving slabs, bricks etc in? Stick to a proper MPV - you know it makes sense (unless you can afford a fleet of different cars to suit your needs or whims).
