A Saluda man got his final wish Tuesday, as he was buried in his car with all his guns.
Lonnie Holloway died Thursday, September 3 after 90 years and friends say he always talked about how he wanted to be buried in his 1973 Catalina.
Tuesday, Holloway got his final wish.
The man was buried in his car after a service at Rock Hill Baptist Church in Saluda. Hundreds of onlookers made their final memories with Holloway, snapping picture after picture.
"This is what Mr. Holloway wanted," said the pastor conducting the graveside service.
"Amen," responded the attendees.
A wrecker had to lower the car with a crane to get it in the hole.
Friends placed all of his guns in the trunk of the car. They tell News19 that he didn't want them to get into the wrong hands, so he wanted to take them with him.
"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," said Malcom Jones, a friend of Holloway.
