Merry Oldsmobiles

That ambulance has appeared in a couple of local emergency vehicle shows in Michigan. It has been spotted first at the Ferndale Emergency Vehicle Show in 2009. Also it made an appearnace at the Cruisin Michigan Ave., Emergency Vehicle Show in 2010 as well as Ferndale again.

By the way I coordinated both shows in 2010 and will again in 2011.

A short wheelbase '67 C/B Olds Seville from Bethesda Hospital in Steinbach, Manitoba. I think this car is still housed in a museum in Steinbach. Too bad the skirts are missing. I never did see this car with them on, even when it was almost new.

"These are not quite as good."

You must be referring to the doughnuts you're having for breakfast, Brady, because that statement certainly doesn't apply to any of these photos you've shared today.

This oh-oh-Oldsmobile Overload is wonderful...Thank You!

Negative Richard

The car Zelley had was a '71 and was all blue. The car above is a two tone.

Huge fan of Oldsmobiles, esp. the early-mid 60s era (own a 65 and a 67, though neither are pro-cars), so these pics are very cool to see.

Don't know if it's still his, but when this photo was taken several years ago in Asheville, NC, Steven J. Allen, President of Allen Communications in Flatwood, KY owned this one.
