The reason for this purchase is not that he is thinking of going into private healthcare (The very thought sends shivers down my spine!) but he is going to convert it so that, when he is called out to attend to a car, he has all his equipment with him and can work on the spot. So, if you have lost your key or have any car security problems, he's your man.
After waiting patiently (?) for three weeks for the log book to come through, he was finally able to drive it home in triumph yesterday. What amused him was driving back up the road in his own car and spotting a woman standing at her window, phone to her ear, patently recounting to someone how she had seen the ambulance going down the road an hour ago, and no, she didn't know which house it had gone to but it hadn't come back up the road since so it must be something really serious.
He did run the idea past me last night that, today he could maybe drive back up the road with siren and lights on and pause for a moment outside her house. Tempting, but I talked him out of it.
