LOS ANGELES – About 100 funeral car enthusiasts participated in the World's Longest Hearse Procession, circling the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. The event was organized by the California Funeral Car Consortium, an umbrella organization for the Vintage Hearse Assn., Professional Car Society and other groups.

Among the procession were Wintons, Packards, Pontiacs, Cadillacs, Buicks and Oldsmobiles. While many of the cars are from the '60s and '70s, some of the cars date as far back as 1916. The museum is also featuring a mini-exhibition, "Hearses and the Dying Art of Coach Building," showcasing the fine craftsmanship that goes into building hearses.
