Cool The video is narrated by the late John Dorgan!

Everyone,

These are lights and sirens from John Dorgan's personal collection, in Tucson, AZ.

John's son Joe, (I believe?) is continuing to run the family business.

Both Steve Lichtman and I had the pleasure of meeting John at his home, several years ago.

We really got the "red carpet treatment", seeing John's shop, his personal collection and chatting a long while over pizza and beer, before his son Joe drove us to our hotel.

I know John was tickled that we stopped by and I am so glad we had the opportunity. While John was not in great health, he made the most of our visit, as did we! What a terrific guy!

Over and out!

Mr. X

Although I have never been to his shop, we did (a lot) of business with John since the early 90's and have continued that relationship with Joe who is also VERY honest... doing business as his Father did and we do....by the golden rule. MM
