That's an amazingly well done carving. Very well made. And at least it was a BMW, not some other crap car. Not sure if I'd go as far as to do that however.

I recall some woman several years ago being buried INSIDE her Cadillac. The Cadillac was the casket.

A sweet story in a macabre kind of way. But imagine the uproar had he been a fan of the A380, 747 or AN-225!

That said, I'd rather have my family cremate my remains and use the 50K to buy and use a real M3 for their enjoyment.

The BMW is ugly. However if that's what the family wanted, good for them.

Now the embalmed guy...well, for starters I never saw an embalmed person in real life, open gasket is not common here, so I already find that creepy. But looking alive like that, brrr !

This is what got me the most:

The granite scale model, which had to be imported from the Far East, cost around £50,000 - almost as much as the real thing.


My God! Translated to Dollars, thats nearly six figures for an M3. Condolences to the Europeans for the ridiculous prices of their cars.
