What was it? It was a firetruck…

But a very special firetruck with a great origin story to go with it.  I will just let you read it’s background story here for yourself.  While there were hundreds of vehicles at this car show in July 2015, with the majority of them being very very shiny, this 1936 Ford V8 firetruck stood out on it’s own – rust and all.

      Sorry darlin’ but I don’t think you’d fancy the firemen that would’ve gone with this truck. Might be a bit on the zombie side by now 😉

    American cars are impressive – the older it gets, the more interesting it is 🙂 Great one Teri! 🙂

    Very nice. This would have made a great subject to do some light painting at dusk.

      A Ford from a Ford that is still showing us how it used to be done 🙂

    Wow! I certainly hope that one day there are the funds available to restore the ol’ truck to the glory of its heyday. It surely deserves it.
