I recall recently reading somewhere where a guy was buried in his 84 corvette ( after he died ). Just looking for some comments on what you guys think of this? Good idea or bad idea and why?

I guess he did not want his wife to have the car.
I think a box is ok for me.

My wife often threatened to bury me in my '89 Coupe. I had a set of FIKSE 5-spokes and 315s on the back... did not "let" her drive it due to concern over damage to wheel rims. BAD MISTAKE!!!! I had this Vette for 8 years... I'm surprised to still be alive. Got rid of it in '97 to save half of everthing I own from the divorce lawyers!!

I guess the fact that my wife of 20 years has a Concealed Pistol License & a S&W Airweight Bodyguard .38 Spl.... had NOTHING to do with selling the C4. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Amish,

I remember that. I think it was a white '84.

If I croak tomorrow, the wife would sell the car...she said her BF can't drive a stick!! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif JK I hope /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif

Yes, I think it is a good idea to be buried in your Vet (or any car for that matter) AFTER you die.

Yes I would like to be buried in a corvette!
My wife says she is going to have me cremated
and take me for a ride in the ash tray instead.

The best choice is to be going down the road
with the top down and be raptured!

Amish....
That occurred near Pittsburg,PA...believe the man was in his 70's. Was cremated,placed the Urn in the drivers seat...drained all the "body" fluids also from the car...bought 6 lots and down it went!!!Then encased it in concrete,to deter theft?:) All this happened I am thinking,like 6 months after this man died.....WOW!! What a waste!! I read the article then..I am wanting to say it had only 29 thousand miles on the odo....

I did an internet search and this is what I came up with.

In 1994, the cremains of 71-year-old George Swanson were placed in the driver's seat of his 1984 Chevrolet Corvette, which was then buried in Hempfield, PA.
