My cousin and I bought our first car to­gether fifty-fifty. We had lit­tle money to buy some­thing de­sir­able, so we opted to buy any­thing that ran for $75 or less. We dis­cov­ered a 1953 Cadil­lac sit­ting in a gar­den plot. We went and asked the owner if he would sell, and he was more than happy to let it go for a rea­son­able price. So, with ne­go­ti­a­tions over, we got to work get­ting the old Caddy run­ning. Our time with the car was short but fun. There were many is­sues with it as you can imagine. Lights that oc­ca­sion­ally went out at night, stalling, and us­ing fuel at a rate that kept us broke most of the time.

The one time that re­ally made us won­der about the car we’d pur­chased though, was when we passed a ceme­tery and the car just died—pun in­tended. You see, the car we bought was a 1953 Cadil­lac hearse. The gar­den it was rest­ing in prior to our pur­chase was in the back of a small­town fu­neral home.

Now, I know as well as you do that a car that old, with so many is­sues, it shouldn’t have been a sur­prise that it stalled that night, but right next to the ceme­tery? Har­vey Peever, Saska­toon
