From a reader and speaking of Texas1, here's an interesting and newly adopted graphics scheme in Austin-Travis County. Observe the chevron stripe extending to the body, and cab. See more ATC EMS photos from Seth Granville's site.

1Almost made it through two postings about Texas before that scene from director Tim Burton's first feature film played in my head. "The stars at night, are big and bright..." Name the movie for extra credit.

The movie quote is from PeeWee’s Big Adventure. It is a passage in the song “Deep In The Heart of Texas”, written by June Hershey in the early 40s or late 30s.

June Hershey, 1941
The stars at night,
Are big and bright,
Deep in the heart of Texas,
The prairie sky
Is wide and high,
Deep in the heart of Texas.
The sage in bloom
Is like perfume,
Deep in the heart of Texas,
Reminds me of,
The one I love,
Deep in the heart of Texas.
he coyotes wail,
Along the trail,
Deep in the heart of Texas,
The rabbits rush,
Around the brush,
Deep in the heart of Texas.
The cowboys cry,
Deep in the heart of Texas,
The dogies bawl,
And bawl and bawl,
Deep in the heart of Texas.

Now, as to the color of the ambulance…I like it.

Ha! nice job DJ, As they say….everything is bigger in Texas!
It’s more like over the top. From the 10 gallon hats, to the snake skin boots to the hub-cap size belt buckles.
You might even find some boss hogg size longhorns on the front of any emergency vehicle.
As for the ambulance yeah it’s definately an eye catcher.
