Hearses For Sale – Not A Funeral Car For the Dead!

Be a share millionaire! Tell the world!

Today I’ve got a really, really strange travel photo from Ryan from Travel And Graphs. You can also follow @TravelandGraphs on Twitter. And despite my silly title, it’s not about Hearses For Sale.. I think! Definitely from the Only In America files!

Anyway, I will leave the explanation to Ryan!

“Pulling into a gas station outside of Weed, New Mexico (ha ha, I love the name – maybe this place has Cannabis Starter Kits!), I was confronted with this scene. There was only one gas pump that looked to be from the 50’s, with a credit card machine next to it and no attendant in sight.

Come to think of it, there wasn’t anybody in sight; attending things or otherwise. Down the road a ways was a convenience store (closed at the time) that made it clear they wanted nothing to do with petrol services. Logically, the way to do this was putting a sign saying as much on the ground, propped up against a white hearse.

Feeling like the insolent chap I am, I thought to myself ” I should go in and ask about gas pumps, just for kicks. What’s the worst they could do?”

Hearses For Sale - Not A Funeral Car For The Dead

But I realized that any store that puts a vehicle to transport the dead out front is not likely to enjoy my humor. Leaving town seemed the better choice!”

I think it’s lucky you did leave town in quick time! Sounds like you are in duelling bango country there! Anyway, there is nothing like using a bit of ingenuity to show the general public what you don’t sell! Obviously the store owners were a little bit over pesky tourists asking silly questions about filling up their cars with gas!

Maybe the store owners should have displayed this sign – Hearse Parking Only. Its a tad different to Drag Racing and V8 Muscle Cars! Maybe they should have used these Personalised Number Plates!
