Taken 4th of July, 2010, Anchorage Alaska
Like it? I LOVE it!
(btw, this Dodge Ambulance is also the vehicle mode of my main Autobot OC, Med-Evac (he's the red and white Autobot on my icon picture)
x3 aye; when I created Med, I wanted his vehicle mode to fit his age and attitude, and since his personality and backstory was similar to TFA Ratchet's, I tried looking for an old military ambulance that fit the bill.
And since my grandfather was a combat medic in Vietnam, and my great grandfather a WWII vet, I wanted something from the 40s to 60s era.
In the end, I chose this vehicle mode when I visited an old Army base I used to live in, and this old ambulance was sitting behind the museum as always, and so it popped to me that I chose the WC-54 x3
We saw this one when we were at an aviation museum in town, my bf's Dad is in an old school military vehicle club-he owns like 3 of them, and he's super into making models and such too.
if you ever watch TFA, you'll have to get past the kiddish animation style and characters, but the story really picks up when Ratchet has a flashback about saving Arcee (his love interest in the show)
aw man I envy pops! The WC-54s are rare and awesome old trucks. And I bet he would never consider selling them either x3
And this guy doesn't own this one, but its often in the annual parades such as the 4th of July parade. and theyll show off the vehicles at the aviation museum or car shows. Their vehicles frequently place, and its often one of his. I think i posted some pics of the others--not sure though, i had quite a bit and i get lazy x3.
