I don't know; transportation has been arranged, but no actual date has been confirmed. I expect that it will be a week or 10 days.

Transporting these things can be frustrating, to say the least. Truckers struggle with communication. a friends coach was picked up here by a single-car roll-off and I think it took 6 days to make the 1 day drive to his place.

Wish you were closer Steve we would deck that baby out. I have managed to hoard quite a bit of gear that is making my garage a much smaller place.

I'll try to get by there before the end of the year and lighten your burden. It'll be a sacrifice on my part, but--anything for a friend!

Sorry for the very poor quality pictures here but this is all I've found at the moment of the sister C/B that originally belonged to Bender's in North Manchester, Indiana. The sister car was purchased in 1974 (repainted bottom to silver) by the May Funeral Home in Lagrange, Indiana. They kept the car in front line service until 1995. It was replaced by a Eagle Chevrolet full size coach. The Eagle Chevrolet was not a tail stretch Alternative but a full size funeral coach like the Buick's Eagle built ( this is the only one I have ever seen). It was then purchased by the Westbrook-Metz & Clouse Funeral Home in Elkhart, Indiana. Terry Clouse brought it to the 1995 PCS meet in Fort Wayne where it was reunited with it's twin. The sister car has changed hands several times since then and was owned by a PCS member in Tennessee that last I knew.

Why do you need a roof plug, you're just going to leave the beacon on anyway, right?

I do plan to keep the car in ambulance mode, but still want it to be fully functional as both.

I now have an authentic roof plug, thanks to Jeremy Ledford:
