Sheriff's Rescue Vehicle

Until a couple of years ago I was a Deputy Sheriff. During my stay I was very lucky that the former Sheriff allowed me to head the Rescue Vehicle project. He also gave me my nick name "Gadget."

This vehicle started life in 1967 as a Cadilac Gage V-100 Commando Armored Personnel Carrier and was built for the USAF. When the USAF felt it had outlived it's usefulness they gave it to the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington DC (DC Police). It served their Emergency Response Team for many years until it fell into disarray and sat rotting away for a long time. I arraigned to have the hulk donated to my agency. I also acquired a junker from the US Park Police, and another junker from the DC National Guard. All of them were considered worse than junk. After a year of hard work in my spare time, I combined three junkers into one operational armored Rescue Vehicle.

The entire renovation project cost only $1,500. The vehicle originally sold for $30,000 in 1967. A newer version of this vehicle is still in production and sells for $350,000 without options. A little elbow grease and a lot of determination goes a long way.

Yes, it has the capability of being amphibious. No, I have never tried it. I did not have a tow truck that could swim out and get it if it sank. I can tell you it really does fill up with rain water real well.

Although I no longer work at the Sheriff's Office, they are still my friends. Click here for more information and some before and after shots. You may notice some similarity in the web design by guess who.
