Default Thanks Matt!!!

Although I was able to see several of these coaches in person yesterday, your photos captured the ones I missed and the quality of your work makes it almost better than actually being there. I applaud you and thank you for sharing.

I'll second that emotion and I will hope for Houston, otherwise, it will be Gettysburg in 2016!

Looks pretty good after all these years.
What year was that, I never got it all week. I know I would love to have it, it was high in my top five favorite cars there.

John, that Eureka-Oldsmobile "Regent" limousine-style funeral car was a 1984. Interestingly enough, it had a matching limousine - a four-door,nine passegner Eureka-Oldsmobile Mayfair. They were purchased as a pair by Ballweg and Lunsford of Syracuse, New York.

^^Thanks. Jon told me he thought about me when he got it, so lets hope it ends up in my collection someday.

Me as well. As an SCI general manager it will be exciting to see the company's museum and my Little Remi (grand daughter) lives just an hour north of Houston.
