The cult classic film Harold and Maude features an awesome piece of automotive engineering: the Jaguar hearse Harold constructs after his mother takes away his beloved 1959 hearse (a Cadillac Superior coach, owned by a collector in Modesto, CA). Sadly, the original Jaguar hearse was destroyed during the filming of the movie in 1971. But there’s a new hearse in town! Ken Roberts, an Arizona-based car enthusiast, began work to recreate the original Jaguar hearse from Harold and Maude in 2013. Watch this video to learn about the long process to make this amazing vehicle.

Cars Getting Towed

This highly satisfying footage was taken outside the parking lot of an all-night business. They have NO PARKING 24/7 signs posted on the wall in front of every spot, and they even tried using an intercom to warn people. Clearly there must be a bar around the corner. Certainly good business for the tow truck!
