To me, Black means one thing: Dale Earnhardt, "The Man In Black" So I'll kick this thing off with one of The Man's most famous rides, from 1988, the first year for his famous black cars, the first year for G.M.Goodwrench as his primary sponsor:

Both hearses are Johnny Lightning castings. The one with purple curtains is from the James Bond 40th Anniversary release 2. The one with white curtains is from Wicked Wagons release 1.
