On Tiktok, Hailey shares her experiences with the eye-catching car from how many bodies it has carried, if it is haunted to her handing out sweets from it on Halloween.
The 22-year-old from Atlanta, USA says she got the 1999 Lincoln Town Car Hearse after a pick-up truck hit her old car and she was out of work for 2 months due to injuries.
She wanted a car that no-one was going to miss, so her green hearse was ideal as she explained: “If they were going to hit me they were going to feel bad about it.”
Hailey said that she works in the theatre and film industry where they work really long days, so during her breaks she can take a nap in the bed in the back of her hearse.
“It’s also jus really cosy to hang out with friends back here.”
“I am definitely excited to take it on a road trip one day.” She said, showing off her beetle juice bed sheets.
As she was getting a lot of questions about it, Hailey wrote on one of her videos: “Please refrain from asking me if I’ve ~done things~ in here and instead refer to my video titled “What Not to Say to a Woman Who Drives a Hearse.”
In that TikTok, Hailey details the most common thing she gets asked from ‘Do you work in a funral home?’ to old men saying ‘You’re not here for me are you?’ when she drives up.
As for being asked if she’s ‘done things’ in the back of her hearse, Hailey said: “It’s gross, we don’t want to answer this because then you’re just gonna think about it.”
“Just don’t make it wierd, don’t make it wierd,” she begged.
As for why others own the unsual vehicle, Hailey said: “People who own hearses, own them because they want to. They bought them because they like them.”
The welding fan says her hearse is not haunted and she has even decorated the back with strobe party lights and led light strips.
Her hearse was retired 5 months ago and she bought it from a person who works in the funeral industry.
So from the person she bought it from Hailey was able to estimate that her hearse has carried 3,300 bodies in the time it was in service.
She says it doesnt bother her or creep her out but instead finds it ‘fascinating’.
As for using it to do supermarket runs, Hailey says she used to go get everything for a big family gathering.
In a video where she shows she can fit trollies full of goods in her car, she puts the eggs on her bed to keep them safe and says her hearse is totally good for getting groceries.
As she got her hearse just before halloween, Hailey and her mum dressed up, put a pumpkin as a head in a coffin and put the sweets in there too.
Many fans saw the space as a great benefit, saying: “It would be nice to camp in.”
While another saw it as a way of living in a car, realising: “It’d be perfect for the van life.”
“I kinda wanna buy a hearse now,” admitted another.
While another joked: “Ever used to transport bodies” Well it is a car. every car transports bodies. just usually living ones.”
