There is also an interview with Eddie talking about the hearse on youtube
Cast your mind back to The Rocky Horror Show tours of the 90's. Do you remember the Rocky Horror Hearse that was used to promote the show? The hearse even made a special guest appearance at our Transylvania 99 Convention (and we all remember it setting off the smoke detectors later that night). The original hearse was sold to a fan after the tour ended, but finally surrendered to rust in 2002.
We've been sent the news that the hearse is to be re-born as a new and improved version for the 2009/10 tour.
The vehicle chosen will once more be converted by the legendary Eddie Stringer creator of the original 1990's promotional Rocky Horror hearse.
Shown in these two photographs is the hearse in it's virgin condition. As Eddie writes "It's a Carlton Quest 4 door hearse 1994 but only covered 32000 miles in its 15 years of service in Scotland. Collected on Friday the 17th April, its was filthy almost grey in colour, but after 3 hours of washing and polishing it is back to black (Amy Winehouse would be pleased). Work should start within a week or so once the sign writing has been agreed."
As the build progresses Eddie has offered to keep us informed and send us more images for your delight.
We'll also let you know where the hearse will be appearing when the tour begins so you can say hello in person and maybe even send us your photographs of you with it.

The hearse has now gone off to the shop to get all it's effects fitted.
Eddie also found himself a blonde man with a tan to accompany him in the car. What he's doing in the bed is anyone's guess!
Eddie did reply to the above question!
The image on the right is the latest one of Rocky, as Eddie writes......
