It could be worse! They could have half buried the actual car like a tombstone. Like the Cadillacs at Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. June

I see that they both expired on the same date, I wonder what the 850 looked like afterwards?

Russia, I guess. But why not, P80s are great. I might have my ashes buried in a T5. which is way more space saving than that 460 Ford I keep around for that purpose 😁

Over here we're discussing mandatory recycling of metal implants after cremation and before burial. Together with stuff from the coffin. I'm guessing the car would get taken out then..

Well, that's a cool image of the 850. Interesting choice for a grave stone though...
