Friend of my brother bought a used ambulance at a government auction to use for his plumbing business, the name of which was “The Drip Doctor.” (Doctor.... ambulance....get it?)

The new owner soon realized that whoever removed the medical and electrical equipment was none too gentle - my brother and his friend spent a couple of days sorting through the wiring and patching holes so that the lights worked correctly and water didn’t leak into the cabin.

The second thing he found was that ambulances are generally ridden hard for short periods of time, then put away wet, so the 70,000 miles on the odometer did not reflect the abuse the neglect the drivetrain had been subjected to.
