It’s the perfect time to cruise the streets and check out the newly decorated neighborhoods. Whether you’re looking for a spooky vehicle to take along on your chilling cruise or to display at your event, DriveShare has a wide selection of hearses and hot rods that will make you the coolest ghoul in town.

1972 Cadillac Ghostbusters Hearse

“If there’s something strange in your neighborhood,” then your neighbor probably rented this awesome car for his or her Halloween party. One of the most recognizable movie cars of the 80s is the Ghost Busters hearse, and here is one that is ready to be the life (or death) of your party. This is actually a former Universal Studios prop car that is outfitted with working lights, sirens, and of course all the ghost busting gear you could dream of. I bet you can already hear the theme song just by looking at it, but it will actually even play through the cars P.A. system.

1922 Ford T-Bucket

This car can actually be part of your costume. Imagine pulling up in this 50s style hot rod in your best greaser outfit! Regardless of the time of year, this ride is bound to make a statement. If people don’t see you coming from the sparkle of the chrome, they’ll definitely hear the 350-cid. V8’s tone as it resonates through the free-flowing side pipes. Let the good times roll: Throw on your best leather jacket and receive endless thumbs-ups as you cruise the main drag like in American Graffiti.

1966 Cadillac Superior Flower Car

Back in the day, these multi-purpose flower cars doubled as a hearse and are incredibly uncommon due to the high build costs.  This is one of 30 built by Superior in 1966. Flower cars were originally used to transport a large number of arrangements from the funerals of elites, such as celebrities or politicians, to the cemetery. The rear deck is hydraulically controlled so it could be lowered to avoid having the flowers blow away while on the road. This example is currently shown with a frightening patina, but it soon will be restored back to its not-as-creepy original luster.

1923 Ford T-Bucket

Flames, flames and more flames. This T-bucket has twelve different parts on it that are bound in flames, a massive supercharger mounted on a V8, and angry eyes on the blower’s intake butterflies. No expense was spared when it came to the chrome either, just the way a classic hot rod should be. There is no attempt to conceal the monster of an engine and all of its guts are exposed for you to see. The open headers let everyone within a ten-mile radius know that she’s alive and well. In fact, the roar may send a chill down your spine.

1985 Oldsmobile Hearse

If you’re trying to out decorate your next-door neighbor this year, book this for a display at your Halloween party – it could be the nail in the coffin. Newer than the others on the list, this Oldsmobile still has a scare factory that will make the hair stand up on your neck. The exterior color appears to be a nice Bone White and the interior looks as if it is Witches Brew Red. While we don’t know if it has been used for its original intended purpose, this hearse comes fully stocked with a real casket which would make a great prop for your upcoming event. It’s reported to have low mileage and is in excellent condition, so you can arrive in style to your friends Halloween party.
