So.. Who likes firetrucks?!?!

Say hello to my 1915 American LaFrance Type 12 pump truck. It was delivered to the Texas Fire Museum in Dallas today for a full restoration.

I still haven't told my wife how much money I have rat-holed away for this project.

I wouldn't say new. I've had this in storage for about 13 years or so. I've had so much other stuff and other projects that have came before this one.

But anyway.. I sold off everything except for this truck and one of my cars.. which I will post pics of later this weekend or next week when I move it.

Oh lol thought you just bought it or something. Oh well.......... Still its a cool piece of art/history. Even though its old it still looks like it has more torque than a Nissan Titan.

Even with close to 100 years on her, that inline 6 is pretty strong! I will get some driveline photos as soon as I can. It's an interesting setup. Engine-trans-drive shaft-rearend-chain drive-hubs on rear wheels
