Make and model: 1972 Superior High-Top ambulance on a Cadillac chassis

Owner(s): Jim Staruk

Owner's hometown: Worcester, MA

Special features:

Until 1980, emergency ambulances were commonly built on customized luxury cars. As a member of the Professional Car Society, we preserve and restore these emergency vehicles to maintain their role in the history of EMS

How I fell in love with my ride:

I was an EMT in the 1970's and recall riding in these vehicles. It was like riding on air, nothing like today's box truck ambulances.
