    My son and I went to look at some junk yesterday and found this. There were lots of old cars there too, but I had to share this...

    You could create a design and custom paint your own classic coffin just the way you want it.

    I'd use that for a shop bed when I get to drunk to walk from the garage to the house.

    Haha There is a guy I work with who has a coffin he sleeps in. He works third shift but has trouble sleeping with daylight and noise. This guy is a complete nut...

    When I was in High school a buddy of mine bought a 1927 Caddy hearst, complete with velvet curtains. We built a wood casket, insulated it , you guessed it, great cooler to carry onto the beach like pallbearers. Drove the girls wild!!

    Just think, you could custom paint it and pin stripe it. When you die people would pay there last respects and say what a good painter!!!
