Re: Fire & Rescue Picture Thread

Here is my x fire. Picked this up from a local gov auction that I flip cars from. I was gonna sell it originally, but its too cool to let go. I pulled the springs out and threw some bags in it until it gets the full PB treatment.

OK, enough whoring my truck out.

Re: Fire & Rescue Picture Thread

Hers's my '71 Jimmy "play-actin' " the part of a rescue rig on the set of "The Kingdom" in Mesa, 2006. I was working as Set Medic for the propmakers [carps].
Fake plastic Saudi license plate. Red Crescent on one of the ambulances before the explosions. Small compact ricegrinder embedded into the 2nd floor of Base Housing type structure after the ''terrorists'' blew it all up. Shot in Mesa, AZ since going to the actual Riyadh, Saudi Arabia wasn't considered safe. Much cooler, too. Only 118* F in Mesa.

I like it. White front bumper with white 16.5" steelies really flow. IMO, a long bed stepside with matching original paint would be perfect.

Well not actually. they paid me to be there, and paid me a "Kit Box Rental" to compensate me for wear and tear on my gear [plus expendables] and I have to be there all day in case someone gets hurt. I just sort of got into the swing of things by borrowing the RESCUE magnetic strip from Props. On the rationalization that if my Jimmy accidently gets into the shot, it won't look wrong.
If you rent your truck out to the movies, some FX guy might want to blow it up.


Ol' Blue Thunder has gotten screen time in one reality show and one art film.
The first instance because the camera panned thru the crew parking lot. On "Goats" with David Duchovney, they saw me drive up to work and asked if they could film my truck. The only perq was that I got to park right at the downtown location, not 2 blocks away in the crew swamp. And even then the camera only started on an ECU of both drivers-side headlamps and then zoomed back and panned right to pick up the actors driving up 2 spaces to the right in a Volvo.
My GMC's 30 seconds of fame.

Re: Fire & Rescue Picture Thread

That's what I meant, it was a real ambulance, not a movie one. It surely deserves a spot in this thread

In the early 80s I was an EMT and worked full-time in an 85 C20 Box ambulance and part-time worked rescue at a racetrack out of a 70 Suburban. Good times.

Tango: Did you ever see "Mother, Jugs, and Speed"? Bill Cosby, Raquel Welch and Harvey Keitel working for a fly-by-night private service provider. (1976).
I got my EMT Basic in 1980. It was a different world then.

Re: Fire & Rescue Picture Thread

Here's one that was for sale here in Sweden. I was tempted but never went to look at it.
It appears to be built on a pickup and not a Suburban or panel, at least it has pickup doors.

Here's one from Vermont that used to be a fire truck and he restored it to a work truck. It was featured in Hemmings Classic Car a few months ago

Re: Fire & Rescue Picture Thread

Us old retired FFs love this thread, although some of my GM fire trucks weren't that old, many were antiques still in service like our American LaFrance and Seagraves, but fun. When we complained our old engine 83 was slow the Chief Fire Mechanics response was put in a big cam and headers on the small block, hilarious! 1 ton dually Fire Truck with big lumpy cam. Always drew funny looks.

I watched it religiously... Right up there with "1 ADAM 12, 1 ADAM 12, RESPOND TO A 4 ELEVEN IN PROGRESS AT THE CORNER OF MAIN AND WILSHIRE!" Sorry - yes, a Dodge.

BUT, wanted to share this beauty I found a while back - found, didn't buy. But wanted to! Gorgeous 59 on ebay. Price was up there...

Hello. I built it. I have had it for sale on and off for awhile. Very little interest believe it or not. I have owned it on and off for years. It keeps coming back, like herpes, but much more pleasant.
