Celebrate the Passion of an Automotive Enthusiast
It's no secret: Americans love their cars. How else would you explain the fact that here in the U.S., we have more automobiles than we do licensed drivers? That's because cars are used for much more than simple transportation. In addition to getting us from Point A to Point B, they're also used in modern racing, coveted as status symbols, and can serve as fodder for hobbyists intent on bringing muscle cars and classic cars up to modern automotive specifications. Commemorative car urns are the perfect way to honor friends, family members, and loved ones for whom cars were a lifetime passion.
It is clear that many people strongly identify with their vehicle of choice. We can see this in the ever-expanding $360 billion after-market accessory industry. Whether your loved one jetted around town in a VW with a daisy in a bud vase or rumbled down the highway in a truck with a lift kit, their vehicle served as an extension of their personality. Choosing a quintessential car urn as their final resting place can help you honor this tradition.
Out of My Dreams and Into My Car
In 1988, Billy Ocean put our collective daydreams into words with his classic pop anthem "Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car." In it, he sings about leveraging his car, which he's obviously very proud of, to land his dream woman. While this isn't exactly how things work out for most of us in real life, it's a scenario that first draws many into the lifestyle. A quintessential memorial car urn will help capture those feelings and hold them in time forever.
Taking Care of Business
At the opposite end of the spectrum from your Sunday drivers are your gearheads. These folks are all wrapped up in the actual mechanics of automobiles. They love tech, tinkering, and gadgets. They're not just interested in how fast a car can go: they want to know what parts are involved and exactly how this feat is accomplished. When you think of a "gearhead," perhaps what pops to mind is a scruffy, middle-aged man sporting wrap-around sunglasses and a greasy mechanic's jumpsuit. But actually, the demographics of this group run deep and wide, including women, celebrities, and everyone in between. Perhaps it also included your loved one. If so, a quintessential car urn can help honor that.
Falling in Love
Though it might sound strange to talk of "falling in love" with a car, we all know exactly what that looks like:
A lot of men and women baby their vehicles. They name them. They wash and wax them with all of the care they'd use when bathing a newborn. Whether or not a guy is driving his dream car, it's especially easy for them to develop an emotional attachment to their rides. (Montway Auto Transport)
If this describes your loved one's relationship with his or her car, a quintessential car urn would be just the thing to help the love continue, even as they pass on.
Grief and Remembrance
When a loved one passes away, sometimes we struggle to know how best to commemorate their life and legacy. We want to honor who they are as a person while still giving ourselves ways to carry their memories with us as we cycle through the grieving process and move forward with our lives. With our custom cremation urns, we provide a way to do just that. We offer racing urns, classic and muscle car artwork urns, and funky gearhead urns adorned with wrenches. These unique memorial urns are the perfect way to honor the passionate interests of the car lovers in your lives.
