William Hudson of Decatur, IL picked up a 1983 Cadillac S&S on July 3, 2006 from Decatur, IL.

She is black with blue interior.  

Her maiden voyage as Queen Victoria was to Michigan City IN, and then on to West Layfette IN.

 They went a little over six hundred miles together and loved every minute of it.

He has always wanted a Cadillac Station wagon ;) and he found her on a car lot there in town. 

She was built in 1983 by S & S and is still all original. 

She has had some light body work done to one of her doors 

and a fresh coat of paint, although who ever painted her wasn't that great.
He's looking forward to having many years of good times with Victoria.

Loving the looks and the comments. 

He hopes that there is another owner in his area or somewhere close where they can get together and have some fun.

David Koonce, of Humble TX, doesn't have a hearse, but he's still looking.

Joey Kundler (Freaky Daddy) lives in Manassas, VA.

He has a 1983 Cadillac Collins Hearse.

He bought it August, 2005 from Moore Cadillac in Vienna Virginia near Washington D.C.

He had been looking at hearses on EBay for a while and 

bidding on stuff for his Halloween haunt when he came across a guy at 

who was selling a casket cart, a cooling cot and a crucifix. 

He listed the items as pick up only. 

He emailed him and asked if there was any way 

that he could deliver the Items if Joey won the bids. 

He asked whether Joey could get to Washington D.C. 

Turns out that he buys used trade in hearses from Moore Cadillac 

and would deliver Joey's items won in the cab of the flat bed truck sent to pick up a hearse. 

When Joey arranged to pick up his items from the dealership, he met Phil Mathis. 

Joey told him of his interest in purchasing a hearse and 

it just so happened that a young co-worker of his was selling a 

1983 Cadillac "Collins" Hearse with 74K miles that Phil had sold him months earlier. 

Joey got it for $1500 and all it really needed was a valve cover gasket replacement. 

The radio and the power antenna didn't work 

so he replaced the antenna and had a hi-end Pioneer head unit installed...

replaced the dash speakers and had a 400W amp installed behind the drivers seat 

to drive a 10" "Kicker" sub-woofer installed in a custom box in the area 

where the removable panel leads to the spare tire.

Of course the A/C compressor crapped out just after he bought the car. 

He just had the A/C system repaired, replaced the front shocks, replaced the cooling fan, 

repaired an exhaust leak at the catalytic converter and replaced all four tires 

and got an alignment done. 

Oh he also replaced the original pearl centered hub caps with red centered hub caps...

they look better and match the red in the tail and side light lenses. 

His first road trip will be to Ironstock in Tell City in Indiana the last weekend in June..

Joey and his wife have been invited to join forces with existing members of 

LasRyds in the Coffin Races at Ironstock.
