New Car for Chief Sarran, San Antonio
Chief J. G. Sarran, of the San Antonio fire department, is shown in the accompanying picture standing beside his new Lincoln phaeton, purchased for his use by the city. In the background is the headquarters building of the San Antonio fire department. This car is equipped with General SemiBalloon cord tires, and it is believed to be the first chief’s car in Texas to be so equipped.
Chief Sarran is delighted with the car, which takes the place of a two-passenger roadster of another make that was practically worn out by several years’ hard service. He is also greatly pleased with the performance of the balloon tires, stating that they add greatly to the riding qualities of the car. Before being placed in active service the new car is being painted red, the standard fire department color, and equipped with all the necessary appliances found on up-todate fire chief’s cars.
