Indy 500 ambulances
 
Hello,
I'm newly registered on this site and I'm looking for pictures of the ambulances used at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
I already have found some pics that I will share here.
Please send your photos.

Here is the first IMS ambulance in 1909 : it seems to be a Premier

I don't have any photos to share, but I know Conkle Funeral Home supplied a lot of ambulances spanning a few decades for the races. Also, if you can get a hold of The Professional Car issue #105, 3rd quarter of 2002, you'll find an article and photos on the Indy ambulances.

PS As a passionate car aficionado, I am very jealous you are so close to Mulhouse!
