Many people may not know that Building 268 at the Heritage Air Park is home to three vintage vehicles.  One of them is the 1954 Dodge Ambulance.  As with all old vehicles, finding people with the required skills to maintain them can be challenging.  The Ambulance has been suffering from several mechanical issues and has not been on the road for the past couple of years.  Luckily a new volunteer to the Heritage Team is a heavy vehicle mechanic.  With this stroke of luck, the engine has been removed and is ready for overhaul.  If everything works out, the Ambulance will join the 1945 Willy’s Jeep in this summer’s community parades.
