The JFK assassination was one of the most memorable moments in American history, and as of yesterday, a very large part of that history will be up for grabs on eBay. The 1964 Cadillac Miller & Meteor Hearse that carried President Kennedy's body was seen by of millions of people when JFK was driven to Love field, and now your neighbors can see it in your front yard. Included in the eBay auction is what is said to be the last known remaining original death certificate, which had errors that were later corrected and resulted in another certificate being issued. The hearse failed to sell in a May 5th auction, but bidding did go as high as $900,000.

We could see why an item like this would be a big draw at a museum or car show, but why an individual would want a hearse is beyond us. What's the selling point? "Hey, check out my hearse. Do you want to lay in the same spot as JFK's dead body?" Maybe we'd think differently if we had $1,000,000 to throw at a piece of Americana, but we don't.

      I'm not sure if I would call it a memorable moment in American history... more like a moment that won't be forgotten for a long, long time

      I wonder if the Dead Kennedys need a new ride?

      Just the thing for those trips to the grassy knoll.

      Tony Stewart will probably buy it.

      $1,000,000 could buy a hell of a lot of gas...

      sd- Huh? If you don't forget something for a long, long time, you remember it, right? Remember----> Memorable. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you contradicted yourself and confirmed what the author said. But $900,000 is a LOT for a hearse.

        jd your logic is a bit flawed...by definition an event that is remembered can be memorable, but the word memorable carries a positive connotation and an assassination is usually not a positive event.
