    Question Ambulances

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any ambulances for sale. We are looking anything from 2000 to a new demo with low miles. I have looked all over the net and there are a lot of good ones out there. we are just trying to see what are options are and if there is anything else out there. If you have any info for me please post or email me. Thank you for your time.

    1521, call Steve Foster at Foster Coach in Sterling. They are a MedTec dealer. He's a hell of a good guy, and they usually have a small stock of used and demos handy. He will treat you fair and give you a good price.

    Dammit. Don't have the number in front of me. I'll have to go to the other building and get it (#&$**@#^%@*!!!!). I'll edit this post as soon as I get it....

    What we need is more CARDINAL fans.

    Welcome to Chicagoambo, even if you are another northerner.
    BTW, I don't know ANYTHING about ambulances.

    We've got 2 Wheeled Coach and a McCoy Miller. All three are Type III's. Most of us (at our department) agree that the WC has a better/smoother ride than the McCoy but we also like the way the McCoy is set up in the patient compartment vs. the WC. Both are good ambulances though. Horton has a nice ambulance too but they are kind of expensive.

    Funny you should mention the SOX. I found a SOX teddy bear at a second hand shop here the other day, actually my youngest one found it and wanted it, but since it was missing it's hat I said no LOL
