Wonder if they will really have those decals on the side or not.......

And I think this is great for the city and all, but why are they selecting those expensive enormous ambulances? They won't be able to afford the repairs and replacements. They could get MORE than 23 ambulances if they selected something like the F-450 chassis

I'd be almost willing to bet Penske is buying the chassis at a significant discount.

In my experience, those trucks are ridiculous on maintenance.

But they do help you feel more manly about yourself.
