Default Gold Cross Ambulance. Buffalo NY (early 70's)

I had forgotten this postcard until i started going through boxes of pictures. Joe Vanvolkenburg got his start in the ambulance business with Gold Cross.

LtoR 68 MM 48", 68 Pontiac Superior 48", 68 MM 48", 68 Chevrolet National, and 65 Buick Flexible. What a fantastic shot!
Sorry,you postcard collectors,this is my only copy.(blown up to show the cars better)

We put together what we could, most cars coming from Volunteer companies. Gold Cross was just starting out then. we did the same for many years, until we realized it was better to buy brand new.

The M-M in the center is a 42", and the Buick is a National (with Flxible tooling). GREAT shot!

the old gas station makes a decent building to start out in . love these pictures. but one suggestion is to crop them on the scanner so all you scan is the picture. the take up a lot less room on your hard drive that way.

like that paint scheme. it transfers from one car to the next easily and looks as good on any of them

I'll have to admit that the two Nationals are giving me just a little buzz! The Ful-Vues on the Chevy are interesting, but the Twinsonic on the Buick has to go.
