Curious, I slowed to let it pass and saw it was a Lincoln Town Car, stretched and reconfigured for coffin transportation. They'd done a good job modifying the body--the rear fenderline was particularly graceful when enlongated.
But all I could see of the driver was an enigmatic outline--and a very casual, confident hand resting atop the wheel.
Who could be piloting this thing? In late afternoon traffic, the question seemed significant, so I maneuvered for a closer look....
He had a great Magnum P.I., devil-may-care vibe, (cigar, baseball cap, mustache, Ray-Bans).
And this made him seem all the more believable as Death on a Mission.
