What the heck is a Landau Bar?

One question that I am commonly asked is if there is a significance to that s-shaped thing on the back of hearses?  Well the easy answer to that is “no” and that s-shaped thing is called a Landau Bar.  The landau bar is basically a design that the first hearse builders borrowed from horse drawn carriages and it has been on hearses ever since.  Instead of boring you with many words about the history of the hearse and how they are made, this video should be a lot more fun to watch.  It is about 3.5 minutes long.  Enjoy.
