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
. The 1964
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
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
, 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.
