Old Caddy Ambulance Abandoned

Postby WGFEMS on Thu Feb 28, 2008 12:59 pm

This old Cadillac is abandoned somewhere in Upstate New York. I am trying to find out who owns the rig in the hopes of getting it and restoring it. If these old rigs could talk, it would be awesome to hear the calls they answered in their heyday...

I found out today the ambulance disappeared shortly after this pic was taken. A few people said they saw it on the back of a rollback but couldn't remember what company actually picked up the ambulance. Hopefully someone somewhere took it in and decided to give it a new life....

OOHH, That is so freeking awsome looking. Looks very much like the one Trenton had when i was a kid. I have been in contact with a local squad member about old pics, I tols him I'd love to build one, but I've never heard back from him, PLUS, the local ambulance squad was sucked up into the fire dept last year, and the old crew was dis-banded, so I may never hear from him. :cry: :cry:

Looks like a Miller Meteor, I drove an almost identical one at Goodhew Torrance Station.

This happens to me ALL the time, something can sit for years but the minute I notice it and take an interest in it, *poof* it's gone.
