    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset.

America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    The maneuver called 'The Rockford' by stunt drivers, as it was invented by James Garner.

    The Income Tax Is An Excise, And Excise Taxes Are Privilege Taxes

    Except as to the rule of appointment, the United States have an indefinite discretion to make requisitions for men and money; but they have no authority to raise either by regulations extending to the individual citizens of America.

    And the strangest part is, that pic was taken overseas, probably in Europe.

    Ya, I talked my dad a while back into listing his Greenbrier Ambulance on eBay. A guy building a 50's / 60's car museum in Budapest bought it!

    Somebody made an ambulance out of one of those wobbly, underpowered boxes?!



    1963 Chevrolet Corvair Greenbrier

    Do those Belgians actually think such things were common in the U.S? Real American ambulances of the day were half again as wide, twice as long and had engines three times as big.

    I think they only converted a few of them for a mining company up in the Iron Range of Northern Minnesota.

    But it was shipped to Hungary, no Belgians involved.

    You did say Budapest, not Brussels...

    I guess that makes some sense for an industry if the access path has very tight curves.

    Also Air Cooled, maybe less of a risk of engine block freezing in harsh northern Minnesota winters?

    That could be a factor. Now that you mention it, the Corvair did have an optional gasoline-burning heater that didn't wait for the engine to warm up to start producing heat. That was more likely a factor.

    The warm engine was also under the floor, which may have made it seem tempting.

    From the Museum: http://alomauto.eu/oltimer-ertekesites/

    "Would you have any idea ??? A 1962 ambulance! It is equipped with a 2376 cc engine, 84 hp. It produced 18,007 pieces in the year of manufacture. This is the only American car in the farm! Complete with first aid equipment, siren, radio. Stainless, nice condition. You can rent for a shoot or just for the party."

    GMC certainly isn't too proud to steal ideas they had over fifty years ago, and market them as the latest thing.

    Borgward Traumwagen, 1955. An advanced prototype made from aluminium that was designed to be capable of cruising at 200kph, two cars were made but one was destroyed in an accident and Borgward’s financial issues meant the project was not pursued
