HELL, Mich. (AP) — Dozens of Michigan hearse enthusiasts will show off their casket-carrying cars during a parade through Hell.
The procession Saturday is part of the 13th annual Hellfest celebration in the hamlet 45 miles west of Detroit. It follows an all-hearse car show.
The Hell-based car club called Just Hearse 'N Around is hoping to reclaim a Guinness World Records mark it set in 2011 when 51 vehicles made the parade. A 107-strong hearse contingent in the Netherlands shattered that record a year later.
Just Hearse 'N Around co-founder Frank Hendeen told the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus, of Howell, (http://bit.ly/1qhie9w ) that some funeral homes will take part.
But the retired police officer says, "most won't, because they think we're a bunch of — well, we are weird people."
