    I finished my side curtains today, they were easier to do than I thought they would be, I did have to redo my tilt though, as I managed to put a screwdriver through it in the process of fitting the fasteners. From all the period photos I have found, there was no front windshield, only the canvas extending up to the driver's shoulders. This would have broken the wind for the most part, and would not have caused a visibility problems due to rain, snow, frost or condensation. I do know that the M1918 did have an additional panel that had isinglass that enclosed the driver's compartment completely.

    I just returned from the Utah Gun Collector's Association gun show in Ogden, Utah, there was a great reception for the Ford ambulance, lots of good feedback. After we pulled it out of the hall, I had to give rides for some time, but as most were cute girls, it was a good thing. It is amazing how many people liked the Ambulance.

    This morning, the ambulance had the look of a period photo from WWI.


    I am sure it was a bitter cold job, but I would rather have been the driver than the passenger.

    The original photo had to have been taken later then 1917, probably the winter of 1918-1919.

    It probably will not be at the Ogden gun show again real soon, but I suspect that it will be af Fort Douglas Days in Salt Lake City in June this year.
