Hi Ken
I believe we may have been the oldest continuous operating family run service.
Lyons Ambulance Service, Danvers MA. We sold to family owned Cataldo Ambulance the end of August 2017 . Lyons was started by my great grandfather in 1904.

Congratulations on your longevity!

Kevin Lyons

Hi Ken, welcome! I assume that you are related to Donnie Newman of the Newman's Ambulance Service. If so, I know that you guys have a vintage ambulance collection that we would enjoy seeing pictures of, if you would like to share them with us. BTW, you guys bought your 67 Miller Meteor Classic 48 "South Hackensack, NJ" ambulance from me.
