Don't let death separate you from that beautiful car you used to cruise around in while you were alive. Our specially equipped "body shop" will mix your ashes with a special high gloss paint and impart a beautiful paint job that IS you.

Guess you could have a big glass mausoleum in the cemetery with the car on display.

There are those who like the idea of getting attention after death so, well, this would probably do it.

You'd be able to look at the car and say: "That's not just Joe's car, that's Joe.".

I had another take on the car in the mouth idea. Eat_20a_20Buick

I assume it would look something like this. https://images.app....l/NG59PVAVcNctorYp7
You could add sparkles to mix with the cremains so the gritty effect might be kind of pleasant. [doctorremulac3, Jul 01 2019]

       A bit more chewing first or the stiffle range ?

       When I die I would like my corpse to be strapped into the driver's seat of my car and then for my (remotely controlled) car to be driven at high speed and into a dramatic accident resulting in the car exploding in a ball of fire or being driven off a cliff or something similar.

       Well, they won’t have to worry about burying you alive by accident after that.

       This could become endless, if the car at the end of its life is pulverised, and the resulting powder injected into the veins of the owner.

       There was another equally pointless idea I posted years ago that allowed you to eat a full sized car over time. It would be ground up and put into thousands and thousands of capsules that you'd swallow, a few every day till you ate a Buick.   

       I didn't bother coming up with a reason why you'd want to do this. Leave that up to the eggheads in marketing.

       Just occurred to me, this is tailor made for a viral hoax. Not something I'm interested in because it's lying and I have a problem with that, but I do see that it would be interesting to see this broadcast all around by an excited news media that wouldn't bother to check the facts because the story would get viewers. All you'd need is pictures of an old guy with a classic car, a shot of somebody pouring the contents of an urn into a paint mixer and a shot of a newly painted classic car. (linky)

       If you change "car" to "cat", and skip the cremation, this whole idea becomes entirely more feasible.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jun 15 2019
  

       Supposedly the eat the soft parts first. Yea, I know.   

       Dogs will wait till their almost starving, cats would probably consider its owner vs the full bowl of food minutes after death.   

       They should make a catfood commercial based on that interesting scientific fact.

       See link for the opposite: using your mulched up car as toothpaste. It wasn't a popular idea here, but I still like it a lot.

       "Macabre" could be the service used by deceased taxi drivers.

       This is a deliberate ploy to encourage someone else to post ..   

       "Cat Lover Becomes Their Favorite Cat In Death"   

       "Owner's remains mixed into the interior."   

       .. as an idea isn't it?
Skewed, Jun 19 2019
  

       Aha, I see you already caught [Max] with it.

       Don't cremains (great word!) tend to be a bit coarse? Maybe turning somebody into 60 grit sandpaper is more realistic…
notexactly, Jul 01 2019
  

       I must have been channeling you, [notexactly]. But the right stipple has Bernoulli properties.
wjt, Jul 01 2019
  

       //Don't cremains (great word!) tend to be a bit coarse?//   

       Yes. You could mix it with sparkles. (link)   

       I suppose you could even process the creamains somehow that they became sparkly.
