Forget a coffin, the man buried Pontiac Catalina style will be cruising through heaven. The man spoke for years about being buried in his â€™73 Pontiac Catalina.
We cover many fashion and style related items here, and this one couldnâ€™t be passed up. Lonnie Holloway was slick. He would get his hair cleaned up twice a week, and cruised around in a classic car, with white-walled tires. He even had a custom tag that simply read â€śLonnie.â€ť I wonder if they set him up with his right arm over the back of the passenger seat, leaning off to the side.
He also appreciated his second amendment right to bear armsâ€”heâ€™s going to be interred with all of his guns in the trunk. So he wasnâ€™t just a smooth character, he was also responsible. Friends say he wanted the guns to be placed in the earth with him so that they wouldnâ€™t end up in the wrong hands.
The Saluda, Texas man passed away last week at 90 years old. With the help of a crane, he and his spotless car were lowered into the ground at Rock Hill Baptist Church as friends and family looked on. You can hear his friends commenting on his style in the video below.
It makes me think, should I use my 1983 Honda Civic hatchback as a coffin? One of the quarter panels is a different color, and I keep my hood tied down with a bungee cable, but it gets me to point B. Iâ€™m not sure I could even lay down all the way in the back seat, and it just doesnâ€™t seem as cool as this guyâ€™s candy green American classic. Iâ€™ve got some time to think about it, so weâ€™ll see.
What do you think, is this going to start a new trend? Or was the man a little wacky to be buried in his Pontiac Catalina? Give us your thoughts below.
