PostSubject: hello to all from Germany   Wed Jul 26, 2017 8:53 pm

My name is Mike, I am the proud new owner of a 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. Actually this is my second Olds, I also own a 1989 Toronado. The CC I bought was slightly altered, actually more equipped, into a hearse in the Netherlands. It was constantly driven and well maintained, for obvious reasons. With the rear seats and rear belts removed, it is registered as a 3-seater small truck. Advantage is a very low annual tax due. Frankly I could not afford driving a 5.0L V8 otherwise, since Germany taxes its personal cars by size of the engine. I use my Cruiser for business purposes. I can put like 20 cases of beer, each one holding 20 bottles, in it without need of stacking them. Pretty impressive! Very Happy
There are some technical issues / gremlins that need to be addressed rather sooner than later. But this should be my introduction. My CC shows less than 104.000 original mls and very little rust. I am planning to use it for the next 10 years, minimum. Wish me luck...

Hello Caster

Welcome to the forum. I don't think I've ever seen a CC hearse. When you can post pictures, we would like to see your CC.

There's quite a few CC guys here, so we may be able to help you with your issues.

Welcome to the forum! Where in Germany are you? I spent 9 years there (Baumholder, Idar Oberstein, Bremerhaven, and Sweinfurt).

I miss the beer.....

Thanks, Gentlemen!
I took some pictures, but only one shows the car in whole, so I post this for now. More pictures, incl. the altered rear section of the car, will be posted in a short while. Inside there was a wooden plate with rollers, and behind the front seats there is a divider with two sliding glas inserts.
I like the fact that the Dutch firm who altered the CC into a hearse left the rear speakers functional.

Any chance it's haunted? Herses are cool. I saw what I think was an LT1 Fleetwood herse a couple days ago in my hood towing a travel trailer.

Welcome from the home of Wagonfest! A hearse? I'm used to driving with a back seat full of kids. I suppose the original passengers in your OCC were not as noisy.
