Welcome to my website! I am a retired law enforcement officer and adjunct criminology professor who has a strong interest in antique emergency vehicles. I also have a small background in the funeral world. In this site, you will see all my ex's: Two Cadillac, one Pontiac, and one Chevy Suburban ambulance; a GMC rescue truck and a fire engine. You'll also see my current fleet: an American LaFrance fire truck, another Caddy ambulance, a 35 Chevy fire truck, and a 2001 Suburban 2500 which is the tow vehicle for the 35 Chevy. In the photo, Dr. Fred Young, VP of publications and education for the Antique Automobile Club of America visits with Anne and myself after my '35 Chevy fire engine was awarded Junior first place at the AACA winter convention in Port St. Lucie, FL (Feb. 22, 2014). Medallion promptly installed on the '35! (below)
