Re: Fire & Rescue Picture Thread

I love these trucks. Here in my town there is a conservation headquarters that holds auctions ever so often selling off these old trucks. It's been several years since they had one but at the time I didn't have the money to buy any of them.

Re: Fire & Rescue Picture Thread

Love this thread also! would love to have some of these vehicles after they are retired,low miles,well mantained,garaged. I took this picture in Connecticut when we were taking a emergency vehicle drivers instructors course a few years ago. Seems to fit into the theme of things !

Jeremy,I remember when you posted this truck's auction and all that. That was a bad deal with that. That's where I got the pictures and I'd like to know where that truck went,too.

I posted a brush fire rig thread in the 4wd message board last year or so for pictures of 4wd GM fire apparatus. I think all years are cool,but this is a 67-72 thread,so let's keep it that way,alright?

I see some nice stuff so far. Some are ones I was planning on showing,so I'll try not to repeat! Some real nice once I never saw,too. I'll hold off on saving those to make sure I don't show'em again.

Ding ding ding...wrrr WRRR WRRR!!! HONK HONK!!!

Re: Fire & Rescue Picture Thread

Thanks for being a fireman. It's pretty cool,around here when many of the old FDs built new facilities they built lobbies with big windows to display vintage fire apparatus,much older than these trucks. The Mount Airy "Volunteers" have an old '39s truck that I can't recall is. The VFD owns a carnival grounds and the last night of the carnival is a parade through town they've had for years. It's just a small town and companies from all over,even neighboring states all turn out to show their pride and joys. I always thought it would be coo to have a show.

That's just wrong. That's like giving a candy bar to a little kid and taking it back from him.
