A businessman has given a hearse a psychedelic makeover in his bid to beat the recession.
Matthew Shuter told how he bought the 1989 Daimler after spotting a gap in the market for funky funerals.
He said: 'The Woodstock generation is now dying out. They really lived a colorful life - they wouldn't want to go to their funeral in a boring black hearse.
'It's a recession proof business opportunity for funky funerals.'
Mr Shuter, 54, from Somerset, now plans to auction the vehicle on eBay, at a reserve of £5,000 - and he claims people are already starting to show interest.
