Many cars today elicit strong emotional responses. Exotic car fans may stop in their tracks at the sight of a Ferrari or Lamborghini. Muscle car buffs feel a strong connection to the vehicles they restore. Funeral cars, however, elicit a decidedly mixed response.
Many people feel creeped out or afraid at the sight of a hearse or other funeral car. The connection to death, which is heavily feared by many, draws a strongly negative feeling from many people. However, to others it is just the opposite. Whether they are drawn to funeral cars precisely because of their morbid connections or because of their beauty and power, there is a large contingent of funeral car enthusiasts around the world.
Funeral car lovers, like those who enjoy any particular type of car, love to get together and show off their vehicles. While some of these meetings are private, most are open to the public. Public funeral car rallies are often held near Halloween, playing up the spookiness that many feel is associated with the vehicles.
A funeral car convention can be an exciting event. There may be music, games, movies, celebrity appearances and numerous other activities. Some of the cars have been customized and are nothing short of spectacular. Local communities will often host these gatherings and advertise them through local groups and online listings. There are also some which garner national attention, such as the Halloween Classic Car Show hosted by the National Museum of Funeral History.
