Wow what a great photo. The caption reads like one from this week. Notice the guy with no mask. Thank you for sharing this.
Just give me time to Rust and I'll be good as new. :) Wabi-Sabi

Macho Man

He's Macho Man! don't need no Damn Mask. and He has descendents that are still living protesting the Masks. I don't like them either but wear them in Public, I am not in a hurry to use a FORD ventilator. It's kinda like the guy with His arm in a sling saying no need to retard the spark before You hand crank the car.

Cool photo... interesting how both the ambulances are chained up - wonder if that's because of the dirt roads and pretty usual flooding in San Antonio or what, as on cobblestones it would make for a slippery ride! :shock:

Also noticed they're something other than T's (or TT's)... the fenders and running boards are wrong, and the rear end is trussed up... tho it's always been kind of a fantasy to get a 17/18 T or TT and repop a WW1 era ambulance body (tho with a TT, it better not be a long way to the hospital!!!).

The photo was taken in St. Louis, by a St. Louis newspaper, but cut from a San Antonio newspaper.
