Martin you are so right we are too polite,when choosing places for our countries we naturally said "No you go ahead and choose were you want the USA and we will settle for what's left".

OK... enough of this Canada vs. United States bashing. You Canadians had your chance to become part of the United States in 1775 & the War of 1812. Too late now!!!

I can only assume that it is because the ambulance makes them uncomfortable. I believe that many people subconsciously associate our vehicles with events in their lives that they would prefer to forget. They never get to learn about the craftsmanship that goes into the building of a Professional Car, but will crowd around a lead sled in the next row, and marvel at the work and craftsmanship that went into creating that vehicle.
Maybe it's not your car, Paul???

I was invited to a show once with my hearse by the owner of the restaurant who was putting on the show. She had a space reserved for me right by the front door. When I backed in, the guy next to me with a 55-ish Olds, looked at me and said "Do you really have to park THAT next to me?" I replied "Yes I do!". He promptly moved....lol

Kurt, I have a fairly rare ambulance. But I can't help but want a classic muscle car to share the garage with. Besides the wife's Mustang.

Brendan, I agree with you. When the weather is right, a later model classic or muscle car can be an enjoyable and practical every day driver for running around in. A 50 or 60 year old hearse or ambulance.........not so much! I enjoy them both, but for different reasons.

a smaller car is a good alternative for shows I agree. planning to find a '65 beetle for the wife and kids, the Pontiac is a killer on gas but less than the '70 Miller-Meteor was.

Never experienced with a hearse but I know when I used to have an old police cruiser people would take more pictures of a 6K police car than a 45k Mopar, just because there was a lot of them everywhere. When you own a chirtmas tree surrounded by 2-doors-metalflake-chromed-mags pines. Same for the Superior. It remembers them the old movies like Disorderly orderly, good (or bad) memories.

as for bad things I heard, just like Paul Said I had a guy who mooved his car once. Since Im pretty young around other car collectors it's not written on my face I own that big white thing the wife of the guy said "that car was designed to kill the patient" ... yeah... they build an ambulance to kill people lady...

Default Final car show before "summer heat."

Got the Olds out one more time for the Mesa Community College car show yesterday evening. We're supposed to see our first 100 degree day this weekend, so this car gets parked until October.
