Elderly Man Buried Inside His 1973 Pontiac

File this under odd symbolism. Lonnie Holloway, of Saluda, S.C., was buried in the front seat of his 1973 Pontiac Catalina on Tuesday. Both were lowered into the grave by a crane.

Watching The Associated Press video of the funeral and the emerald green Pontiac being lowered into the earth, it almost seemed like a funeral for the brand, which General Motors killed off in June.

Mr. Holloway, who died last week at age 90, outlived Pontiac by only a few months.

“He said, ‘They’re going to have me with my hat on, driving down the road,’ and I said I’m going to be there. That’s what he wanted. I know that sounds crazy,” Malcom Jones, a friend of Mr. Holloway, told WLTX.com.
