The first appears to be a hearse. The second may also be a funeral related vehicle.

RE: The strange MBs

Second one appears to be a "flower car". Kind of like an El Camino or Ford Ranchero pick-up/car. Used to transport the funeral service flowers along with the corpse from the church to the graveside for services there. Too bad the deceased cannot enjoy the flowers/procession....it can be quite impressive. Witness the old gangster funerals of the 1920's and 30's. The big bosses had up to a dozen flower cars along for the last ride.

heres irony al the time you are alive you have to stop for red lites its only when you die and in the hearse that you can run them. still if you got to go there is no way I want to be hauled out for a dirt nap in a caddy I would haunt everyone for that.
