Re: Picture: Old San Diego Police Department Tow Truck


Recommended Posts

I happened upon this pic of the old tow truck in my archives used by the San Diego Police Department when I was on the department in the 1970s. The truck was small and under-rated with a laughable (no duallies) towing capacity for towing larger and heavier police cars with a modified Holmes Sling. The, "Little Tow Truck That Could", would nearly cut-wheelies when towing those old, monsterous LTD, Crown Vic police cars or Dodge Sportsman Ambulances. It was more of a parts runner than aything else. I remember it being in action only a couple of times and have no idea where it wound up.     R.
