The word of the day is, "bogus". There's something very bogus about this photo. Know what it is?

The '64 Superior Pontiac ambulance in the lower part of the photo is my car. That's right. It has the "Pontiac" roof sign and the fire department license plate that were on it when previous owner Lew Wallace owned it, and were on it when Lew sold it to us. The '64 Superior Pontiac combo next to it was also Lew's, although it never had the S&S tunnel light on it that's been scotch taped onto it. The photo was obviously taken at a PCS meet where Lew had both present, which was probably a Mid-Atlantic Chapter meet in the late 80's or early 90's.

Look at the other combos in the line, they also seem to have beacons of different sizes taped in place. And what is that at the far end of the line???

What gives?

In reference to Adam Borkat's post on the 1959 Cadillac tail fin chrome tail light pods at least a couple of these 59 M-M's seem to have them.

Also note the " M-M Flite Trim" on the doors going back under the tail fins on at least 4 of the coaches!

Did they have an ambulance service too? The radio tower behind the building seems to suggest it may have been used for dispatching...

Great photos Jeremy!

Is it "EVE" or could it be either "E\E" or "E+E"?

The newest edition of the Lyndon State College alumni magazine had an article about the history of Lyndon State Rescue (now Lyndon Rescue) plus a couple photos of their early ambulances in honor of the upcoming 40th anniversary. Lyndon Rescue's website has some great photos of their early rides - they can be seen here - http://lyndonrescue.net/page15.php

I see they liked the C/B Oldsmobiles, I would have to agree on the choice!

Most anything is easy to find on this site; just use the "search" feature in the toolbar on top of any page:
