1969 Cadillac Ambulance

Some people dream of sports cars. ER doctors dream of emergency vehicles. Sure it gets hot with no air-conditioning, but when you are just going to the grocery store it gets you there in style. You can bring home a lot of groceries in an ambulance. And if traffic ever gets to be a problem, the lights and sirens really work!


Dr. Chartrand’s ambulance is a fan favorite in many of the local parades. Our ambulance took first prize in the 2009 Allen Christmas Parade with the theme “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer… So She Called Dr. Chartrand in Downtown McKinney.”

The ambulance is maintained by Earl Burdick of Burdick Auto Solutions in McKinney.
